Mrs. Warner from Yonkers NY is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Narrative Writing With Digital Imagery

My students need a laptop so that we can use our Smart Board. The classroom computer I have now is so old that ithas a floppy disk drive. It's so slow.

My Students

Do you know why it's important to be a 21st Century learner?

My students attend a trades and technical high school.

I teach two ninth grade English classes and two ninth grade English Honors classes. I also teach English to one class of twelfth grade aspiring auto mechanics. My students are eager to use cutting edge technology. We have a Smart Board, but our classroom computer is so old that it takes more than 30 minutes to boot up. It locks up if I attempt to use several applications. My school population is diverse. More than 90 percent of my students are eligible for free lunch.

My Project

If we had a working laptop, my students would be able to use the Smart Board that our classroom has. We would be able to conduct research and link into Internet sites that expand learning beyond textbooks. My students would be able to use critical thinking skills and fully use lessons from the CORE curriculum.

It is vital for today's learner to have working technology in the English classroom.

My students are growing into tomorrow's workers in a global economy. My project infuses technology and writing. These are two skills that are necessary for the work place.
