Ms. Labrecque from North Haven CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Chromebooks for Debate Fuel Fire!(Round 2)

My students need these Chromebooks to learn valuable work skills that will enable them to get a salary job. My special education and ELLs need these Chromebooks to supplement traditional learning methods.

My Students

Most of my kids that I teach are low-income, with many receiving free lunches. Inner city students face challenges that suburban students may not, including lack of resources. I want to use these chrome books to help change that. I want my students to have the same opportunities as other students, and with technology in my classroom I can take the first step to accomplishing that goal.

No person should be denied access to a quality education, experiences, and opportunities.

My Project

My students are energetic, interactive, and inquisitive. They are motivated to learn about the world around them. With these chrome books, my students will be able to work in google classroom on their daily assignments, reducing paper waste and giving them an opportunity to increase their computer skills (in this day and age, computer skills are a must-have!).

DIFFERENTIATION: I will also be able to provide supplemental material to my students who are SPED, ELL/ESL, or are of a higher level than the rest of the class.

I have students who have difficulty writing (for various reasons), and these chrome books would allow them to type their assignments. This would lessen the stress for these students.

In addition, these chrome books are crucial to student-lead learning in my Senior Health Law class.

Health Law is a class that can be boring textbooks and memorization, or it can be an interactive experience where the students are able to take it upon themselves to learn about major controversial topics, and the laws that relate to them. In the past, I have seen this class transform students - who may be a bit disengaged in regular classrooms - into activists who really care about finding all the data they can and articulating their opinions in an effort to convince their classmates they are correct. But it doesn't stop there because this class also takes time to reflect after the debate and then write a letter to our senator where the students use their knowledge and writing skills to inform our state's senators of the issue at hand and what they believe should be done about it.
