Mr. Downes from Brooklyn NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Go Scratch!

My students need one computer to present their projects, using multiple representations such as PowerPoint and Scratch.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are Title I, inner city, and self motivated learners who want to change the world for the better and realize their potential.

They all have a yearn to learn and become successful young men and women.

I work teaching a various array of students the American History curriculum.

The children love using technology, and I attempt to infuse it into the day as much as possible. I teach a wide range of students including Superintendent and SETTS kids.

My Project

My kids need Chromebooks to research Colonial America, using PowerPoint and Scratch, to create dynamic multimedia presentations. The students need to use a computer to research and share their work.

Each student loves learning about Colonial America and convincing Europeans to come to their assigned regions.

The computer will allow the kids to create interactive presentations to convince Europeans to migrate to their Colonial region.

The computers will allow each and every kid to have the equipment they need to make a presentation that makes them feel good about themselves and helps them with their self esteem.

We would really appreciate your help in this project.
