Mrs. Jarman from N Charleston SC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Build a Classroom Library to Explore!

My students need to build a classroom library to meet their inquisitive minds including series of biographies, conflicts, and secret histories, as well as a research guide, and a "building formulas" PDF with accompanying teacher guide.

My Students

Some of my students have not yet discovered books that capture their imaginations. This could be the year that magic happens and they fall in love with books. Help turn their inquisitive minds from relying on an Internet search to researching and reading books.

Our school is a Title One school that has students from all different ethnicities and backgrounds.

Our students embrace the peace philosophies taught by Maria Montessori and embody the collaborative spirit empowered by our multi-age classroom. Our classroom provides a framework of learning which encourages students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers. The Montessori Middle School classroom emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and to the real world. It fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding and global engagement; qualities that are essential for life in the 21st century.

My Project

By building a print enriched environment, our students can explorer books and find the enjoyment of making new discoveries by reading and not a search engine. The books will allow them to explore social world topics on a deeper level and spark questions to make sense of history.

My goal for this project is to allow my students to complete in-class research for collaborative learning and have the ability to collaborate with their peers about history and math.

With funding they access to a world of new information to explore!
