My students need computer reference books to help them create projects using Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Adobe Illustrator CS3.
Children in today's digital world are motivated by visual learning. What better way to entice kids to learn than to use technology as a tool? I teach computers to close to 450 students a week in grades two to five. My students come from a variety of abilities, including Special Education, Inclusion, ESL, Gifted, and of course, general education.
Currenly we have limited reference resources in our computer laboratory. My students create beautiful projects, however there is so much that can be done on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and we have a limited amount of lessons and reference books to create very individual and authentic projects. Each child has their own ideas of how they want their projects to look like. The books will allow the students to individually explore the various aspects of Photoshop and Illustrator and create their own vision of their projects.
Having a library of computer reference books will allow my students the flexibility and creativity to complete projects that have their own individual touch. The books will also give me ideas for more in-depth lessons using these programs.
You will make it possible for us to create some of the following projects using the reference books: Grade five students will be studying the American Frontier, based on the New York State Social Studies standards. The students will complete the following projects in this unit of study: 1. Using specific Internet sites I have highlighted for them in my Portaportal account (http://guest.portaportal.com/ps56torossian) students will research the reasons why the American Pioneers moved West to the Frontier. They will imagine that they are living during the Frontier era and they will use Microsoft Word to create an advertisement convincing people in the East to move to the Frontier (using their desktop computer in the lab). My students will work with partners to take
