My Students

Our community school is very diverse where many backgrounds and languages are represented. For most of our students, English is not the primary language. As a result, our students face challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the challenges they face on an everyday basis, my school is always looking to provide our students with meaningful learning experiences.

As Albert Einstein said, "The only source of knowledge is experience." Learning needs to be an active process.

It is my goal as an educator to help my students not only reach the next reading level, but to keep my students motivated to learn.

My Project

My current document camera that I purchased on my own, unfortunately is not working correctly after two years. It is constantly freezing, making it hard for my students to see the work I am modeling during whole group lessons. The document camera I am requesting will help out our learning in so many ways.

Modeling is a critical technique for teaching students in all subject areas.

In reading, the camera would allow me to model close reading strategies by annotating the text instantly in front of the class. Since we are using interactive notebooks in reading and science, this camera will allow me to visually show the students exactly how to set up each page. In Math, the camera would allow me to continue to use the exact same workbook pages as the students to model strategies to solve each problem. This camera would allow me to continue my teaching through modeling strategies and expectations.

This document camera will not only be used by me, but my entire class as well. My students will be able to proudly display their work for the entire class to see!
