My Students

I have a group of 62 students who are fun loving, eager to learn new things and excited about school. My school sits is Title 1 school that sits in the heart of DC. All of my students receive free lunch. My classroom would be considered a melting pot of Cultural heritage and social needs. The majority of my students have been in the US less then 4 years or comes from a home we’re English is the second language.

My Project

Having access to computers will improve my students learning in many ways. For example, my students will be able to connect to the world by reading literacy that stimulates their critical thinking skills and improve their reading abilities. Students will also have the opportunity to respond to literacy questions which will also improve students writing and typing skills. Furthermore, having access to technology my students will be able to connect with other students globally to discuss various literature. If we had these computers my students will have accesses to technology at least 3 times a week. Our school currently has 200 computers for 660 students.
