My students come to school ready to learn and compete, but many do not have the materials they need to succeed.
The problem is our school district is high poverty.
Many students do not have the necessary supplies, resources, or support needed for success. Our school district has limited funds available to classroom teachers. DonorsChoose.org has become a staple, providing much-needed resources to ensure my students have the items needed for classroom success and beyond. Without these projects, my urban students would not have what they need to prepare for high school and college.
My high-poverty students can't afford expensive test prep courses to improve their chances of scoring well and earning college scholarships and admittance. I want to level the playing field by giving them access to resources to study for the PSAT before our test takes place.
I have already incorporated grammar warm-ups into my curriculum to help students prepare for the test.
I want them to have the same opportunities as students who can afford private tutoring. Your gift will allow my students to practice skills before taking the PSAT, increasing their chance for success on this test and later on the SAT and ACT. Studies show that working with test-formatted questions directly increases test composite scores. Thanks for giving this gift to my students.
