My students need 7 drawing materials such as markers and colored pencils.
I am a Special Education teacher in a New York public high school. I teach 9th and 10th grade self-contained English and resource room. The disabilities of my students include speech/language impairments, ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger's, severe emotional disturbance, and more. All of my students are bright, motivated people who need that extra push to succeed. I am touched and inspired by their ability to face these tremendous obstacles. During the first week of school, I asked students to write me a letter about what types of activities they would like to do in the classroom. Many of them expressed interest in art work. I have made an effort to incorporate art into the class by asking students to visualize and illustrate what we are reading. For example, my 9th grade class is reading a play called Fences by August Wilson. I asked students to visualize the setting of the play. The activity was engaging and truly contributed to their understanding of the play. However, it is difficult to regularly do these kinds of activities because I am lacking supplies. If I had the necessary supplies, I would be able to plan the activities that my students find so enjoyable. I am confident that these interactive activities will help students to better understand and remember the reading. Your help will make it possible for my Special Education students to express themselves in a creative way. Because many of them lack the necessary skills to express their ideas in writing, this project provides an alternative outlet for expression.
