Projection System

The cost of this proposal is $1340, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

As a history teacher, I love my discipline very much and I would like to share that love with my students. I want to show them what a colorful and enriching topic history can be. I feel this goal requires me to enrich my instruction with as much interactive multimedia as possible. Consequently, I would like to request a simple multipurpose projection system that can project images from a VCR, DVD Player or Laptop computer. Such an item will allow me to show historical video and audio clips to my students as well as construct interactive Power-Point presentations that will harness the cutting edge of educational technology. With such a projection system, I feel my students will be more inspired to learn about history as a result of much more dynamic and stimulating instruction. Such inspiration will go a long way to improving the children's educational attainment at Franklin K. Lane High School. Quite unfortunately, Lane High School has some of the lowest educational statistics in the City and has been placed on the City's SURR and IMPACT lists. I passionately feel that the hard-working children who come to the school deserve, despite its reputation, every educational resource available to improve their education and their future. Thank you.
