My Students

My 21st century learners are working hard to meet the challenges of the common core standards. In my classes, students will be thinking and creating; finding and evaluating information with which to create their artistic literary projects.

My students attend a high poverty, high needs school in Bronx, NY.

Our school is small but full of pride and innovation. The students are boisterous and ready to work hard. They are a tight knit community that should have more access to the outside world to help broaden their worldview. Like young adolescents everywhere, my students are social learners, and need to collaborate on assignments and projects in order to maximize their learning. For many, school is the only place they have access to technology and the Internet.

My Project

I am requesting 4 Chromebook computers to create art projects in literacy. My students are English Language Learners and technology can provide an additional pathway for differentiated learning. These computers will allow students to learn in different ways and ultimately, gain in literacy to move successfully up to the next grade level. Having access to these computers on a regular basis will benefit my students. In particular, the students will create videos based on information gathered from readings to incorporate artistic expression into literacy. They will create news segments, play/ drama scenes, songs, storyboards, and short graphic novels. With a shared classroom computer, we will be able to integrate artistic expression into our class. I am excited to be empowering my students through art in this way. My students get excited to use technology and get creative in my classes, and this will give us great freedom to do that.

Please help me empower my students through art to make literacy come alive for them.

These computers will raise my students' innovation by allowing them to collaborate and create and make literacy understandable. They will build their understanding through creativity and ingenuity. Please allow my hardworking students this opportunity by funding this project.
