My students need a camera, 3 memory cards, an ipod and a laptop.
My students want to understand the events in the world right now. There are so many issues, fundamental questions on the role of the government; issues that are relevant, important to every single young person in high school-health care, war, AIDS, government response to poverty and disasters, economics.
Our inner city school has a high percentage of students on free/reduced lunch programs -about 88%.
We are a poor district in a poverty stricken country. Our students are driven to earn a good education and we need the requested material to help them reach their goals. Many of our students want to attend college programs in journalism, but we need supplies to help them gain the needed education that will be required by universities.
As student journalists, my students will work to bring to light important issues. Students will increase their academic skills as student journalists. They will work on creating a History News Now newspaper. They will research and report on opinions involving several themes we are learning about. Journalists are needed to help the public think about how public policy will be used to solve social problems. John Dewey, a journalist, believed that journalists spark debate and the best ideas bubble to the surface. Having the students complete oral interviews, collect photos and work to report all the sides of issues will bring my classroom to the highest possible level of student learning. They will construct and destruct ideas that had about they key issues and problems solve and create summaries of what they have researched. We will present our ideas at a local law school and a state conference and make suggestions for public policy.
Your donation to this project will provide inner city school students the "gift of a lifetime." Working as student journalists, they can and will change the lives of disadvantaged students.
You will make it possible for our students to think beyond their high school diploma and seriously consider journalism or broadcasting as a career. Providing the students with technology to use will help them get ready for college. Having memory cards/recorders will allow the students to capture plenty of images.Read More
