Mrs. Stough from Sterling Heights MI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Demo It! See It! Create It!

Help me give my students the ability to see my demonstrations from their seats with a document camera. Basically, it’s a modern version of the overhead projector.

My Students

My students are very dedicated art students, striving to make art an important part of their lives. I teach drawing, introduction to art, art foundations, photo and film classes and I am working on creating the ideal learning environment for my diverse group of students. For 20% of my students English is a second language. 62% of our students are classified as Economically Disadvantaged. This school’s culture is truly amazing. Our student body and staff are extremely proud of our school.

My Project

For many of my students, English is their second language. Being able to see how to use the art process is very important. ESL students struggle with processing time. ESL must listen to the instructions in English then translate in their head into their native language before being able to comprehend the new information. Demonstration is a universal way to learn for all my students. My classroom is very long which makes it hard to do demonstrations in a way for everyone to see them easily without a document camera attached to my projector. The live feed will allow everyone to see and ask questions as I am doing the demonstrations.
