I am a teacher at MS 223 in the South Bronx, NY. My students often come to me with reading skills that are far below grade level. At the same time, it is necessary to provide them with the skills they are going to need in high school and beyond. The major culminating activity for my students is an exit project that is an in-depth research project on a specific topic in American history. Students are required to cull different sources of nonfiction to first pull out the information and then synthesize it into an essay, PowerPoint and then an oral presentation. It is a long task that requires a lot of hard work on the part of my students to complete. Students need to have access to technology to research, draft, edit and present their exit projects. I have been fortunate to receive 6 computer terminals that will help my students. I do not, however, have furniture or materials needed for students to be able use the technology in the classroom, access the internet and print from our computers. I am requesting a handful of items to build a lab in our class around these computers. I have selected 6 computer desks that will be perfect for students to work alone or in pairs. I am also asking for internet cables and a switch for students to network to the internet, each other and to a printer. These important materials will allow us to maximize our resources and optimize student accessibility. I can't wait to see the excitement instilled in my students as a result of your generosity!
