Hooray! This project is fully funded

I work with 20 bright and eager 3rd graders in a socio-economically challenged part of Hayward, California. My students are Spanish-speaking English learners who come from homes where literacy is simply not the priority in a daily struggle for survival. I need a laser printer so that my students can use the resources that I already have - a computer, a digital camera, RealeBooks software - to create their own high quality books. They will then push literacy into their homes and community following the model of Paolo Freire who pioneered the idea that people can learn to read and write at any age by creating their reading and learning materials. These books that the students will create will both document their lives and reflect back to the community the lived experience that is the basis for a rich culture of books and learning.
