Making Their Mark: Markers Needed For English Classroom

The cost of two different class packs of markers for this proposal is $220, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

Making posters isn't much fun with without having colorful markers. At my high school, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. HS for Law, Advocacy and Community Justice, students are in desperate need for markers in order to help create posters and other print rich classroom displays. For the past two years, I have purchased countless boxes of markers, but there has never been enough for all the students to use their classroom groups. With 90 percent of the school's students qualifying for free/reduced lunch, many students are unable to purchase the very basic school supplies, such as a package of markers. Having a class pack of markers will enable students to complete charts, posters and other displays for the classroom. By having these colorful visual aids posted in the classroom, students will improve their literacy and content skills. As an English teacher, these are the essential skills I strive to teach. Having this colorful resource will enable students to reach a higher level. Your kind contribution will no doubt add a lot of color to the concrete classroom walls. Thanks in advance for your support.
