My students need a laminator and film to have quality materials. Being able to laminate materials keeps them in top quality for students year after year.
The days of sitting at your desk all day are over. Students today need to be engaged and have hands on activities to complete. In our room, we are always busy. Students are often seen working in groups at learning stations. The materials for these activities pass through a lot of hands in one day!
Harrison Community Learning Center is located on the south side of Peoria, Illinois.
The neighborhood consists mostly of rental homes and public housing. Almost ninety-eight percent of the students at the school receive free or reduced lunch, an indicator for low-income families. Not only does this percentage of students exceed district standards of low-income students in the school but it also supersedes the percentage of low-income students at the state level. Harrison has a predominantly African American student body; just over seventy-three percent of the student population is African American. Similar to the low-income statistics, this percentage surpasses both the district and state percentages of African American students. Harrison also has a large subgroup of Hispanic students whom are English language learners. Approximately, seventeen percent of the student body is Hispanic and almost ten percent of the total school population is limited-English proficient students.
The laminator and film requested in this project will be used by the students to preserve the models, drawings and diagrams that the students create as visual aids to the often difficult material being covered. It will also allow us to create class sets of materials that can be drawn on using dry erase markers and used for many years to come. The most important thing in science is being able to see the process that is happening. With the students work preserved and displayed around the school, it will allow them to feel important and accomplished that their work is being used as an example.
By donating to this project, you will be contributing to the preservation of student work that can be used by teachers in the department as teaching materials as well as instructional aids.
The materials will be used to drive home difficult concepts as well as be used to show connections between concepts.Read More
