Our high school is a Title 1 school located in a large city. We are starting our second year of an AP Chemistry Program and we are the only class in our district embarking on this adventure. Our students are driven and motivated to be successful in high school but also gain the skills needed to be successful in their careers. We strive for students to gain the knowledge to prepare them for college or career.
Students motivate themselves by enrolling in multiple honors and AP courses throughout their high school career.
Our students come from a variety of backgrounds but each student has the willingness and motivation to be successful both in school and outside school. They are not only involved in academically challenging courses, but they are varsity athletes, officers of honors and volunteer clubs and some are even working part time jobs.
Chemistry is a hands-on class where the content taught in the classroom can be experienced in the laboratory. By having appropriate lab equipment and technology to collect data my students are able to fully understand the concept of chemistry that is being taught. Using the colorimeters, pH probes and mini verniers in the lab, the students will have access to college level lab equipment and be able to interpret their data they collected.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and increase their knowledge. The students will be able to learn how to communicate the data they collected through graphs and tables. This will prepare the students for their AP test as well as college level laboratory courses. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
