Mrs. Marshall from Detroit MI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Portable Assessments

My students need assessment data conducted by me inputting anecdotal notes daily. Having a portable laptop will allow me to be actively engaged while documenting their progress in real time without missing a beat.

My Students

I teach Pre-K in the city of Detroit. All of my students live below the line of poverty and are considered at risk which qualifies them to be in the program I teach in. Due to their economic and academic disadvantages, I try to afford them experiences they may not otherwise have access to.

I try to expose my students to various experiences that will help them develop a love of learning through curiosity and exploration.

I teach at a STEM school and I want my students to have learning experiences that promote experiences in science, technology, engineering and math.

My Project

My students are assessed by daily anecdotal note taking. Having a laptop will allow me to be actively engaged in my students learning areas while taking notes in real time with the portable technology of a laptop.

Right now, I write down the anecdotes, then have to wait until I am able to get to a desktop computer to put in the notes that I have taken.

That extra step of writing the notes then putting them into the system takes away for me participating with their learning experiences. A laptop will not only allow me to capture photos of them learning but to also input notes in real time without missing a beat.
