Ms. Buchanan from Cleveland OH is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Hello! I'm connected to the world!

Help me give my students a chance to connect to the world during this pandemic. Students will be able to complete their online assignments and continue to take advantage of reading through the summer.

My Students

My students are urban city students who are being required to be distant learners. The district has tried to offer technology options, printed packages and television channels as resources to engage our students.

Students have no access to technolgy.

If they complete the packets they are required to take a picture of their work and send to the teacher as proof of assignments completed. Parents who are essential workers need their phones at work and sometimes do not have smart phones so we have a significant amount of students who cannot connect to the school despite their and their families willingness or desire to comply. Our students are generally three to four years below grade level and this will put them further behind in their learning as they prepare for high school.

My Project

The students in my class will be able to connect with classmates to complete assignments. They will read high quality literature to prevent the drop in reading gains that is normally experienced through the summer months. Students will have an opportunity to take charge of their education! Students will be able to create creative interpretations of literature, art and sciences through the use of a tablet and interaction with their teachers and peers. Our students deserve to soar through reading, writing and math and science experiences. The world of the internet awaits!
