My Students

I teach in a large urban public school system. My school is a traditional K-8 school with a population of over 1,500 students who are predominantly low-income and Latino. Many students enter school not speaking English fluently. I teach two sections of 5th grade Bilingual Language Arts and Social Studies. I have 32 students in each section.

My students need access to technology to do research for class projects as well as to develop their English vocabulary in online games and practice.

Currently, we have only 8 laptops for 32 students. My goal is to purchase at least 8 more to improve student access to this essential learning tool.

My students are enthusiastic language learners and love to use computers to help them learn. New technology will help me keep them engaged and enhance their learning in many ways.

My Project

Chromebooks will enable my bilingual 5th graders to work collaboratively in small groups on Social Studies projects. They will be doing research this year on significant events in the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, and having access to chromebooks will allow them to explore a variety of online history resources.

Because my bilingual students have different levels of English proficiency, the chromebooks are helpful to keep students engaged and learning while I meet with small reading groups.

My students love working on computers, and it is easy to get them enthusiastic about learning English when they have opportunities to work online.
