I teach students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade during their library time and also during an extra period called PLC. Our school is labeled Title I, which means that the majority of students have been identified as at-risk and have lower socioeconomic statuses.
Half of the campus is composed of bilingual classes, and most of the students speak Spanish as their first language.
We rely on donations and grants to fund many of the great opportunities we want to offer our students.
Our campus has a a wide variety of ways to share photos with parents and the community. We use Twitter, a school website, and a yearbook to display the photos taken. These photos are usually taken by staff members so the only photos used are the ones shared by adults.
This project would allow students to take ownership of documenting the year by using a digital camera.
We would like to have a club where we teach students about taking photos and let them help with being the school's historians for the year. The students would be able to show the school year through their own lens!
