Mrs. Kintz from Chicago IL is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Mrs. Kintz's Science Lab Needs!

Help me give my students the opportunity to be engaged in lessons provided digitally. My students will have the ability to annotate the complex texts with me, and gain a better understanding of the content.

My Students

I am an educator in a high-poverty/high-need community where resources are scarce, and equitable funding is even scarcer. My students arrive every morning with a great desire to learn and a thirst for knowledge, based on their inquisitiveness that they have demonstrated thus far.

Due to a lack of funds in the school budget this year, I am instructing Science without an ELMO document reader.

Since we live in a digital world, students no longer access the information the way they did 10 years ago. As a teacher, I would love to acquire this tool because the ELMO helps me reach students and deliver quality lessons that provide a positive impact/outcome for learning.

I love this resource because it makes complex text passages easier for students to comprehend because this tool provides us the ability to annotate the text together.

The document reader would be such a great addition to our Science Lab. I look forward to utilizing this tool with my students in the future to make lessons more engaging and to dive deeper into the texts with them!

My Project

Please help me engage students with being able to dive deeply into complex texts with the assistance of a document reader. The document reader will be utilized by me to project complex texts to my classes that I service. We will annotate the text, which will allow for my students to gain a greater understanding of the content within the text.

Without the help and support from Donors Choose, this may not become a reality for this school year, as we are given a tiny budget that does not cover the costs of various technology components in my lab.

Please make this a reality for me by assisting in funding my project! Thank you!
