Help Students Interface w/ History (LCD)

The cost of an Epson PowerLite LCD projector is $1258, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

At our school, most classrooms do not have computers. We do not have any LCD projectors for teacher use. Our students rarely interact with technology in the classroom. I recently obtained an old laptop and I am excited about the possibilities for my classroom. I teach seventh grade World History to ESL students in South Los Angeles. Visuals, demonstratives, and graphics are an essential part of making world history come alive in my classroom. They are also an important part of scaffolding for the English Language Learners I serve each day. With an LCD projector I can provide a new level of access to my students. With the images and graphics it will allow me to project regularly during classroom instruction, I can better support my English Language Learners. With the pictures and visuals it will allow me to project onto the wall of our classroom, I can bring the outside world into our classroom on a daily basis. Allowing students to develop and present their own PowerPoint presentations will supply them with an invaluable chance to interface with technology and a new way of sharing knowledge. The LCD projector will also give me the chance to provide my students with examples of how and where they can research information on the internet. My classroom is incredibly interactive, but there are only so many days I can bring in hands-on objects and examples to share with the students. An LCD projector would greatly enhance my students' experiences with World History by literally opening up a whole new world of possibility in our classroom. Our class is built upon the idea that we are all world changers. Please consider acting as a world changer and improving the resources available to my students in the classroom.
