My students need news magazines and a camera to think and act like journalists, as an incentive to learning different writing genres- ie.,expository.
It's sad to see students enclosed in their own day to day without a clue of what is happening around the world. If we can't physically take them to view the different cultures and perspectives, why not help them see the world through news magazines?..and as a bonus, let them produce their own news!
I have thirty-one exceptional students who will enter their third grade year with high expectations.
They are ready to learn new things and require a high level of education from their teachers. Our school is in a low-income community with little resources, but with great ambition. As all my scholars say, "We are scholarly knights on the road to success."
My students will use the news magazines in many ways: They will learn non-fiction stories through the current events sections, work closely in collaborative groups to incorporate the stories with Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies, learn how to write journal articles and news reports, and be aware with what is happening all over the world, not just their own community. The camera will be a technology incentive for them to learn to take pictures for a classroom newspaper and record videos for their broadcast journalism reports. They will have a blast and at the same time learn about professional dress, speech, and build their self-esteem by appearing on camera.
Your donations will create a new world of opportunity for my students.
They will be introduced to their core standards in a fun and engaging manner with a lot of rigor. Learning about different technology, writing genres, and public speaking will be just three of many educational rewards you will provide my students with your generous and kind donation.
