Mrs. Cormier from Howland ME is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Flood Watch

My students need a document camera to enable us to project information from sources that we only have a single copy of.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

In this world of technology, it is important for my students to be exposed to all that is possible.

My students are from a very rural area.

The income level is very low. Our school consists of grades 6-8. We share library and cafeteria space. My students want to learn and achieve. Most are interested in learning. They need to be given the opportunity to see things outside of their local world.

My Project

I feel that by using a document camera in my classroom I will be able to project many varying types of media that the students would not be able to experience on their own. Many of my students do not have the opportunity to travel very far outside of their home environment. Each year, as a class, we read the story of the Johnstown Flood. I have a notebook of information about this flood and replica pictures. One of my colleagues also has photos of this flood, since her grandmother was from that area of Pennsylvania. Our school has two rivers diverging in the area. Thankfully the area has only experienced one flood. This was long before their lives began. With the benefit of a document camera my notebook and my colleague's firsthand information would be much more easily accessible.

I believe having a document camera in my classroom would be a benefit to all students in my middle school.

Our district is comprised of several small towns and the budget is tight. Any help with equipment would be appreciated.
