Mrs. Crownover from Wetumpka AL is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Increasing Success in Algebra

My students need Chromebooks in order master standards that they have been taught in the classroom. These will allow struggling students with additional time to work at their own pace during the class day.

My Students

As a teacher in a school district with varying socio-economic levels, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. These challenges include the lack of technology at home or devices that will allow them additional practice to master the standards being taught in the classroom. I want to provide technology devices in my classroom that students can use during "down-time" in order to recover standards that have been taught in order to success in the classroom.

Most of my students struggle with basic math skills and need additional time to master standards that are being taught in the classroom.

Elmore County has provided many websites and apps that will assist students with recovering standards that will prevent them from falling behind and allow the students to be successful students. I would like to provide devices to assist students during the school day.

My Project

These Chromebooks will enable my struggling math students with an opportunity to gain additional practice on standards being taught in the classroom. About 50% of my students do not have devices that can be used to access additional websites and apps that can be used to master the standards being taught.

Lack of basic math skills is inhibiting many students from being successful in their future goals.

My students will use the Chromebooks during the school day to work on standards that have not been mastered and to obtain additional practice on basic math skills. This will provide an opportunity for my students to practice at their own pace throughout the day.
