My Students

I am writing this proposal for my high school students who participate in our music program. Our high school serves a large urban area and has a high percentage of students from low income homes. Our student body is culturally diverse and provides our school community an opportunity to experience languages and customs from many cultures as we interact every day.

Many of my students do not have the opportunity to explore and experience high-quality music instruction outside of the school setting.

It is exciting to see them grow in their knowledge and excitement of music. Many of our students will continue their participation in the music program for 3 or 4 years during high school.

My Project

My students love to use technology is the classroom. The external memory device that we are asking for is a necessity in the classroom. We are working more with large size picture and movie files and need a larger device to store the files that we accumulate during the year as we participate in vocal contests and concerts.

The audio/visual files that we capture and store on this device will be used to promote our choir program as we share them through the many communication mediums that exist in our high tech world.

My students make movies and flyers throughout the school year to showcase what is taking place in the choir program. Giving them access to the files that we have collected will help them create effective multimedia that will promote our program to other student interested in joining our program.
