Globe Needed for Special-Ed History Class

My history students need a political globe for their classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I work at a special education school, servicing emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and other special education classified students. Our students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Over 95% of the student body is eligible for free lunch and over 90% receive public assistance. The school’s ethnicity is as follows: 60% Hispanic, 30% African American, 8% Caucasian, and 2% Asian. These factors come together and place our children at a huge disadvantage, but we are committed to providing them with a rigorous academic and therapeutic program. I teach United States and Global History to these special students. My children learn best with the use of visual aids, and I fill my classroom with posters and manipulatives so they are surrounded by history. We need a new globe for our classroom, because our old globe is "missing." (I'm hoping it now belongs to someone who really loves to study our planet!) What I wish most of all is that my students have the opportunity to prepare for college. In order to be successful in college and their future careers, my students need to have a grasp of the physical world around them. Some of my kids have even expressed interest in studying history in college, and I want to make sure they are knowledgeable of other countries and major cities. Thank you so much for viewing my proposal for these terrific students!
