Mr. Craine from Gainesville FL is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mr. C's Chromebooks!

My students need two Google Chromebooks to continue expanding our ability to research, compose, and share our writing in an effort to improve our Language Arts abilities.

My Students

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic," stated Arthur C. Clarke. In my classroom technology is the "magic" that gets my students excited to learn and write each day.

I have taught middle school language arts to all grades and ability levels.

This year, my classes are exclusively above-level 6th graders who love to question the world around them and explore new things. These students benefit tremendously from any motivational tools available. Technology, in particular, is something that will push a student to work much more diligently than they would otherwise.

My Project

These Chromebooks will be a huge help in our daily writing activities. In addition to that, however, these Chromebooks will assist in teaching these students the fundamental, necessary skills of using a computer to do work. From navigating menus, to using the internet appropriately, to learning how to properly use email, these students will be practicing and perfecting skills that will take them far beyond the middle school classroom!

These computers will do more than help my students with their writing assignments.

They will prepare them for a future dependent on using technology on a daily basis for a wide variety of reasons.
