Projector for History Students

The cost of this Sharp Notevision Projector is $1393, 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>.

My students learn when they are able to experience the process. Unfortunately, since I teach history, where everything has already been experienced, it is my job to recreate the event in a meaningful way for my students. I have found that field trips and visual aids help my students absorb important information much more deeply than just hearing lectures or reading primary sources. Consequently, I am asking for a projector to show PowerPoint and films to my classes. There is one projector for our entire department and is difficult to reserve this equipment when you are competing against thirty other teachers. Having a classroom projector would extend my students' access to visual images to more than just once a month. Using film and photographs on a weekly, if not daily, basis would quickly yield results. I know that their test scores and understanding would increase exponentially with the help of a projector. I am donating my computer to my classroom this year so that my students will learn how to create their own PowerPoint presentations, which, for better or for worse, will make the need of a projector all that more great. My school is gigantic and has a graduation rate of a little over 30% in five years. We are a high needs school. There are 4,000 students and a staff of over two hundred. The students and teachers often get lost in the crowd. I am asking for the materials necessary to help my students feel included in the education process rather than just a bystander. Please help me bring the stories and themes of history alive for my students so that they will enter the playing field with the same experiences and knowledge as the more technologically fortunate students.
