Mr. Schnee from New York NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Knowledge Comes From Visual Aid

My students need 100 packs of paper so that they can learn visually the information brought forth in the classroom and can refer back to it at home when studying.

My Students

Have you ever tried to teach something and said the words "pictures speak a thousands words?" Well this statement defines the learning styles of most students, especially the ones I have. My students need visual tools to guide their instruction.

I teach in a high school populated with students of special needs, students of various learning styles, who are mostly low functioning and require extra attention to perform successfully.

Budget cuts have unfortunately taken this luxury away from our students. We are limited to a specific amount of paper to enhance our instruction. This not only hurts me as a teacher but it makes it impossible for a visual learner to duplicate the material brought forth in class and reflect on it at home.

My Project

The only way my students can benefit from the instruction they receive is by taking this information home with them so that it can be reinforced and mentally recaptured. With 100 packs of paper, my students will be able to take part in the following activities: poster development, webquests, reading comprehension, and artwork.

With your help students will be able to receive instruction the way it was meant to be delivered: a teaching enhancement that will show great improvements to the learning done in and out of the classroom.
