My Students

I am writing this proposal for my high school vocal students that participate in our Intermediate and Advanced Choirs. Our high school serves a large urban area and has a high percentage of students that are low-income.

Many of our students are highly interested and motivated in their study of vocal music.

They look forward to their choir concerts and performances. I work with a diverse group of students from various cultural, socioeconomic and religious backgrounds. Meeting the needs of my students is a challenge that requires the choir department to integrate the use of new technology into our program. This keeps student learning fresh and helps our students reach to higher levels of achievement.

My Project

We are interested in using Drone HD video technology to create cinematic promotional videos for our choir program. We need to go the extra mile to attract students into our program. We do this by creating recruiting commercials and movies that really capture our students attention. This helps us create a learning atmosphere that is exciting and interesting for our students. Currently, we are focusing on attracting more male choir members. When they see cool stuff going on in choir they are more open to join the program. As we integrate the use of more technology on our classroom we also see more male students signing up for choir class.

Please help me achieve this goal.

My students live in a fast-paced visual world. The learning in my classroom needs to reflect what they experience and see in their everyday lives. Expanding my abilities through collaboration and learning from others will help me create a high tech classroom learning environment that will drive me as an educator to higher levels of accomplishment.
