Since I am a teacher of Debate, Public Speaking and English, I am responsible for teaching my students how to be effective communicators in the world they will face every day. One of the most important aspects of learning to speak and debate is learning to research and having the proper tools to obtain the research necessary for presentations and speeches. If we don't have access to research, we have nothing, essentially. Our school does have a very nice media center and library, but since we have a huge student population, our classes have difficulty "getting a spot" so that we can research without competing with other classes (such as English) which require research as well for papers, etc. I believe that if we had a laptop that we could connect to our internet service, and I could start a very nice media center in my classroom so that my students (especially those who have no internet access at home) could do research while I assisted them individually during class time. This would assist them in school projects and as we prepare for competitions with students from other schools around our state. I have approximately 120 students per day, and feel that this would HIGHLY benefit our Speech and Debate program at Starkville High School! Thank you for your consideration!
