Developing Global Leaders in Dallas

Help me give my students access to current events around the world to help them develop into global leaders with these Kindle fire tablets.

My Students

I currently work in a Title One school. I work with a group of 12 wonderful, diverse fifth graders in the general education classroom. We work together to learn Reading, Social Studies, Math, and Science.

Our school's mission is to develop global leaders.

With this in mind, we strive to incorporate global thinking and current events into our daily lessons and activities. My students hold themselves to high standards and are constantly working to achieve academic excellence. Unfortunately, in October, our school was hit by a tornado and the building was deemed unsafe for continued use. While we have been relocated to a different school building, Walnut Hill lives on in my students and their spirit for learning.

My Project

Currently, each month, we focus on completing projects regarding global issues and topics for each subject. This is part of our mission to develop global leaders at our school. However, in October, our school was hit by a tornado, which damaged, not only our school building but also our classroom technology.

By providing these Kindle tablets, my students would have access to scholarly articles, videos, and websites to help them complete research for their global projects.

Many of my students do not have reliable access to the internet at home, and thus, these tablets are essential for us to participate in the type of academic endeavors needed for 21st-century learners.
