See It...Believe It

My students need a projector so they can learn to take accurate and meaningful notes.

My Students

"Take notes." This simple task presents many challenges for my special needs students. Good note taking is a skill my students need to master.

My special needs students are in 9th, 10th, and 11th grade.

Their disabilities range the spectrum from behavior to processing information concerns. The students in my class are decoding and reading at 2nd-5th grade level. They live with extended families where survival is the priority not necessary education. Our school is the lowest performing high school in the state. Our population is over 70% indigenous with 67% receiving free and reduced lunch. It also has 23% identified as special needs.

My Project

A projector in the classroom will greatly enhance the students education by providing them the tool to take accurate and meaningful notes. The ability to project notes and pictures of relevant content will motivate and keep students engaged in the lesson. Many times lectures and discussion can take a detour and it can provide me with a learning opportunity I may not have expected. A projector will allow me to act on and capture that interest. My students are visual learners and any method of instruction that will keep them interested will benefit them through increasing attendance and eventually graduation.

A projector will allow me to keep students engaged in lessons as well as give them note taking skills they can use in college.

There are currently 5.5% of college graduates in our community (2010 Census) and I would like to give them the chance to increase that number. Students need to feel success before they believe it can happen. A projector is a small step in that direction.
