My Students

Do you remember how much easier it was to learn something in class when you could see it up close? Please help my students have that same experience by helping us get a Document Camera that will allow me to enlarge small items or papers for all of my students to see with ease.

My classroom is filled with hard-working, brilliant students who come from primarily Spanish-speaking homes.

For this reason, it is so important that they have access to realiable visual aids during instruction. Our school is an inner city charter school that aims to prepare all students to attend and compete academically in the top 100 colleges in the nation. Unfortunately, this task is is hard to achieve without the proper resources. At this point, we do have an overhead projector in the classroom. However, this is only effective if I am able to make a transparency with the copy machine or my printer which are often not working. It also does not work for material objects or pictures. With a Document Camera, I could demonstrate counting money with real coins and dollar bills. I could show students how to highlight important information (versus just underlining on a transparency). I could also use it to show my students objects or other material things.

My Project

With this resource, My students will have access to so much more. Not only does it save the paper for extra copies, but it also saves time in that I am able to quickly show/demonstrate something for my students that they all can see. I think it is important in this day in age to utilize technology in every way possible. This tool would be a major classroom enhancement and would surely help us reach our long-term goal of college preparation.

You contribution to this project could make all the difference in the world.

My students would have access to so much more and it would be because of your generosity. Thank you for considering my students needs.
