Laptop - a Necessity!

My students need a laptop so they can research historical documents and be able to print out pictures while the lesson is going on. Just having an extra laptop would help!

My Students

Being a US History teacher is such a unique and amazing experience. Being able to talk about how history shapes the world is so powerful. I look forward to students to be able to understand the complexities of the world and how the past shapes our future.

The students are so amazing to work with and incredibly eager to learn more about the ways of the world.

The need to understand the past plays a pivotal role in their futures. Most students in our school come from poor areas and struggle to have access to computers. Having a laptop in class allows us to have instant access to knowledge.

My Project

The laptop will help the students have quick access to information and they will be able to print out materials to use for class. Most students don't have access to computers or to printers so having a extra laptop will help greatly! Please allow students to have access to a new laptop.

The students will able to research information for class and be able to print when needed.

Most assignments will be computer driven and this allows students to have instant access to the Internet and will be used to better their knowledge.
