Mr. Buffington from Malvern AR is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Malvern High School Social Studies Department

Help me give my students Social Studies supplies that will enrich their learning.

  • $1,456 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Malvern High School (MHS) is comprised of a diverse group of students. Over sixty percent of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch. In addition to this, many of our students are from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

Despite their differences, our students work together and represent how diversity makes our school and nation stronger.

Malvern is a town of around 10,000 and the Malvern School District serves as a unifying force for the community. Malvern School District bumper stickers, yard signs, and flags are a common sight to see when driving around the community.

My Project

Students within the MHS Social Studies will greatly benefit from all of the items I have selected. The maps are going to enrich their geographical knowledge of not only the United States but of the World. Geography and how it impacts history is an essential component of World and United States History. The color printer is going to allow the department to print out primary and secondary documents resources in color to aid in student analysis. The DVD player is going to assist in playing educational resources without a computer so that students may see places and historical figures brought to life outside of text-based resources.

The green screen and tripod are going to assist in integrating technology into student presentations to prepare students for a career in the 21st century.

The class sets of books are going to allow students to better understand all aspects of the subjects they are learning. The graphing board is going to aid in the teaching of graphing in Economics.
