My Students

My school is an inner-city school in which most of the population will be the first in their family to attend college. This school year, our school is focusing on improving SAT test scores, especially with our disengaged students. The students in the SAT Prep class need extra mathematics interventions in order to increase their SAT scores in the Spring. My students plan on attending college or the military when they graduate. They are in need of individualized, student-centered math instruction that will focus on their mathematics skills so they can be more confident as they attend post-secondary schools.

My Project

My disengaged students need access to Chromebooks for individualized instruction so they can master the math skills needed for them to increase SAT scores. Currently, our school's scores are not very good and we have put in place intervention and programs so our student's achievement will increase. This is important as many of our students are disengaged and come from families that have not graduated high school or attend college. We need to support these students as they prepare for this important test. We are hoping to increase scores by 40 to 100 points. I personally feel that we can accomplish this goal with your help.

The addition of Chromebooks to my classroom would give my students who are not motivated the opportunity to use educational Chromebooks.

With the incorporation of blended learning teaching, my students will be able to focus on the skills that are essential to their personal College and Career Paths. Currently, many students want to use their cell phones to access online sites which is not the correct type of technology for a disengaged student to use as they receive constant alerts from their personal/social media sites. As an educator, this is often difficult to monitor. If I have Chromebooks available for these disengaged students, I can facilitate and assist them in their learning. By getting data from online sources in real time enables me to assist them on an individual basis.
