Mrs. B. from Kalamazoo MI is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Projecting Knowledge

My students need a way to project the knowledge they are learning through an LCD Projector.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

The students who will benefit from this device are of a high-need community where little to no technology is available for their use. I teach a 9th grade English support class and a 9th grade English Recovery class.

The obstacle that I face is the lack of technology is my classroom. Other classrooms have either a LCD Projector or a TV in order to communicate and display information to the students.

This school year, I am teaching two courses that I have created curriculum from "scratch." A lot of my creativity involves PowerPoint presentations to assist my visual learners. Unfortunately, the LCD Projector available for use, for the whole school, is almost always "checked-out" resulting in the inability to portray through visual representation, my lessons/units of discovery. If I was granted the opportunity to have an LCD Projector, strictly for the use of my classroom, my students will benefit from the visual knowledge they will be gaining through my lesson plan/unit plan designs.

I am confident that through the incredible support of donors that this wish of an LCD Projector for my students will ensure their future success because not only will they be able to visually see the presentations I create, but they will also be able to create their own presentations and display them for others to see. That is my ultimate goal, to prepare the students for college when they will be expected to present visual projects to their peers and be expected to understand how to operate the equipment.
