My Students

I work in a school with students from a variety of backgrounds whose learning levels vary greatly. Our population is very culturally and socially diverse. Many of our students are new to the United States and are learning to speak and read English.

Our school has an active library program.

Students come with their classes, and also independently during homeroom and their lunch periods. They use the library for projects, to borrow books, to use desktop computers and chromebooks, and also to attend book club meetings.

My Project

Our library is used primarily for independent research and reading by students during lunch periods and immediately after school. We do not have enough technology in the library to accommodate an entire class. If the library has enough Chromebooks for students to work with a partner, more teachers will decide that using the library is worthwhile and schedule class visits. Chromebooks would enhance students' vision of what the library can do for them, not just for choosing books and typing up projects, but also as an online research hub. Chromebooks would also help special needs students who might struggle using books and other printed text for research, and to use audio-visual options available online.
