Document Camera for our Lessons

My students need a document camera and surge protector to help keep them engaged and follow along with the lessons on our smartboard.

My Students

Our classroom is filled with learning and imagination. We work on reading, writing, math, handwriting, social studies etc. every day. We teach our students what they need to learn and more importantly to love learning. As a special education teacher, in an Inclusive Co-Teaching setting (in which both general education students and special education students learn side by side) in East Harlem, it is my job to provide opportunities for all students to learn in different ways to meet their diverse learning needs. It is important that my instruction includes audio, visual, and kinesthetic aspects enabling all students to access information.

Inclusion is not simply about proximity, it is about intentionally planning for the success for all students.

In addition to having an integrated community of learners, we also consider the socioeconomic status and cultures in our classroom community when creating our classroom environment and implementing lessons. Our students are mainly Hispanic and African-American, inner-city children that range in level of education as well as ranging in language exposure. Some of our students come from newly immigrated parents who speak very little English.

My Project

A document camera will help my second-grade students stay focused on various tasks and improve interactions and discussions in our classroom. We do have a smart board in our classroom and this document camera would be a huge help and change the way they learn by modeling math and interactions with read along's.

My students will be able to see on a large scale what we are working on and be able to follow along much easier.

This will make shared reading, phonics work, math, science projects or activities and so many other things much more exciting and will engage more students every day!
