My Students

I currently work at Martin Luther King Jr. Charter School of Excellence. I work in a population of low income students that come from one or non-parent homes. I work with students that are ELL and have multiple disabilities. I have 18 students that are in first and second grade. Our classrooms are all sharing IPADS and chromebooks on a rotating schedule which makes it difficult for all of the students access to the curriculum for chromeooks to be able to orally state s. My school has graciously gave the students the opportunity to use a reading program for our students to help all the students. Our biggest area of concern is in ELA. This is a great program, but it is difficult for my students to be able to go on when we do not have enough chromebooks or IPADS for the students to be able to use. The students also use the chromebooks and IPADS for extra support in math as well. Since this is an age of technology where students all need access to more than one or two chromebooks for up to 22 students to rotate through.

My Project

The school has graciously given the students the opportunity to a reading curriculum, but it is difficult for the students to go on it with 2 chromebooks to rotate through up to 22 students. The students need access to computers to use the reading curriculum but also to use for other online programs the students would benefit from such as prodigy for math, pearson for their math curriculum, access to a computer to type out their responses to open response questions. My student would benefit from being able to orally state their ideas on a computer instead of the having to write it out by hand.
