Mr. Andree from Surprise AZ is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lights! Camera! Action!

My students need more digital video recording equipment, such as a new camera, tripod, microphone and connections, for the student run news program.

My Students

Students love to express themselves, and my class is all about expression through the digital media. Students have the opportunity to create videos, movies, and newscasts in my classroom.

My students come from all walks of life.

We are a charter school, so we really run the gamut of all social classes and backgrounds. For some of the students, this will be the first time, and possibly only time, to use video cameras and editing software. For most students, my class is the most looked forward to because of the new experiences it brings to them.

My Project

The students have the opportunity through my class to tell stories, stories about our school through their eyes. My class is a news production class. Each grade level is doing their part to create a weekly newscast. Currently, I have 5 cameras for 30 students. Either I have to have large groups of students working together, or have some students waiting for their turn for the camera. Having another camera, tripod, microphone, and accessories will help alleviate larger groups and give more students a chance to be more hands on with the equipment.

More equipment means more students working at the same time.

Students love to use the cameras, and want to tell their stories. I want to give more students the opportunity to share their experiences in the digital form.
