Ms. Whipple from Austin TX is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Charging Up Our Learning Spaces

My students need the electrical outlets so that they can charge their tech devices at their tables, especially important as they are not using Chromebooks throughout the day.

My Students

Emphasizing an interdisciplinary model of learning, my partner teacher and I are tearing down the walls between our English and history classrooms, metaphorically, this year and with a plan to really break down walls for next year!

Moving towards a more humanities-centered model, our classroom will need many items to help establish a pleasant learning environment.

Located in a large urban high school, my students are part of a smaller learning community that is focused on interdisciplinary connections, project-based learning, service to the community, and integrating global issues within the curriculum. Our program is open to all students, regardless of their background or prior learning, so this is not a magnet program; rather it is a rigorous program that hopes to connect a diverse range of students from our larger community who are entering our program with a range of academic experiences and background knowledge of history.

My Project

Having an alternative light source in the classroom will give students a chance to learn in a room with the fluorescent lights turned off. This creates a more soothing experience and can help reduce eye strain.

Students now bring Chromebooks with them to class every day; however, many times their device doesn't last all day (or they forget to charge it at home!) Having some portable outlets with cords that reach to the outlets in our room, as well as something to place over the cords for safety reasons, will allow students to continue learning throughout the day.

Because we sit in groups, the outlet power stripes will be able to serve all 6 students at each table.
