Engaging Young Writers

Help me give my students access to technology and become successful in writing. Having Chromebooks will provide them with a way to learn typing skills, learn how to format essays, and edit their writing.

My Students

My students are eager to learn. They participate in class discussions with enthusiasm. They vary in academic levels but they try their best to succeed. Although they all come from different backgrounds, they work well together and enjoy learning about the world. For some of them, their financial status makes it difficult for them to have easier access to books, resources, and materials to be successful in school. At least half of them really struggle with reading, math, and/or writing. I have several students with speech deficiencies and learning disabilities. Therefore, some of them perform below-grade level compared to their peers. My high-achieving students can also benefit from extra resources. They enjoy challenges and they are always willing to learn new concepts.

My Project

Our school is working hard for students to be successful in writing. Writing is usually very difficult for our students, especially since it requires many skills. Having access to technology, such as Chromebooks, will help my students learn typing and computer skills that they need for school and state testing. My students will benefit from a Chromebook because they will be able to type, edit, receive feedback, and learn how to format their writing. My students will also learn how to create projects using slides, images, and research for classroom presentations. This will help them share their creativity and new knowledge in an exciting way!
