My students are a mix of regular and diverse learners. What I love about my students is I taught half of them during their freshman year and I get to teach them for their sophomore year. They are an outgoing bunch that loves to discuss connections to the text and independently read. They prefer learning through power points and class discussion. Whenever I can use popular media or relevant events to compliment our learning, it helps them formulate stronger, thoughtful opinions.
These materials will make a difference in my classroom because not all students can decipher my handwriting, see the board, or read "dried out marker " information on the board. With a projector, I can pretype the information we are going to learn and discuss, then project it so that all students can see it better. My school shares about 7 projectors for every 30 teachers, sometimes the projectors aren't available for daily use and it inhibits effective learning. If I have a projector for my students that I can use daily, I can enhance classroom learning time by not writing on the board constantly and dealing with dried up markers, but project images, videos, powerpoints, and pre-written directions/assignments for them.
