CMS FCCLA Community Luncheon

My students need a printer and 2 document cameras to have comprehensive visuals for recipes we will be making for our community service project to feed low-income families.

My Students

My students are faced with severe financial restrictions that impede supply purchases. For example, I supply them with the pencils. Therefore, we need to centralize our recipe projection for collaboration among students while preparing food for the project.

I teach a GREAT bunch of middle school children in a very impoverished area of West Tennessee.

My students are also very visual learners and like to interact with technology to prepare them for the skills for college. We are an iZone school, which has been recognized by the state as needing greater oversight for student academic achievement, specifically for us, reading and language arts (RLA). That is where I shine in addition to the culinary side. Because our student body is so under-nourished in nutritional education as well as grammar, it is imperative to have the resources to visually grasp the information that is more difficult to obtain through the textbook. I am not merely a chef instructor and life skills coach. It is my duty as a caring human to improve the literacy of our children.

My Project

The students can engage in my lessons when all parties can participate using a centralized projection medium and customized handouts. Since paper costs so much money to supply handouts for printed materials, my students are able to cut their costs for materials and be able to contribute to our food preparations for FCCLA and the community because a DocuCam and printer provide focal points of reference. Many of the lesson plans that are part of the curriculum require the need for a large visual aid that can be incorporated with existing school technology. With such a large space for a class room, projected information and students utilizing it covers TN State Standard 2.0: The students will use and incorporate technology as an integral part of the classroom environment.

We will provide food for a community in need while students increase career and language fluency skills.

Since we are an iZone school recognized by the Tennessee Department of Education as having significant needs for fluency gains, all means of community service and student organization of such projects builds self-motivation and intrinsic qualities in their lives.
