My students are intelligent, hardworking, passionate, and technology-savvy. They are 6th grade students in an urban 6-12 secondary school with a population that mainly comes from a low socio-economic background. Regardless of the struggles they face at home, when they are in the classroom they yearn for unique experiences that speak to them as individuals that have a variety of learning choices and academic levels. They love hands-on learning, small group work, and cooperating with each other to learn in an environment that fosters their individuality and unique interests.
Please help my class by donating to our project and helping to provide us with a projector. Many students in my class are visual learners, students with IEPs, and special education students who learn best by seeing. At the moment, we do not have a projector.
Playing educational videos, showing slideshows, and student presentations all involve using a projector and it is an integral part of engaging students in the learning process.
Students use what is projected as a visual reference for the lessons they are engaging in from science and learning about the water cycle to history and seeing ancient civilizations on the big screen. All of these reasons and more are why we need a quality projector for our classroom.
