Simulating the College Experience in Rural Montana
My students need six ergonomic computer chairs and two reading chairs to make learning more comfortable.
At our high school, we believe that everyone teaches, and everyone learns. When students and staff walk through the door, they spend eight hours thinking, laughing, creating, and sharing. The walls are covered with student art and accomplishments, and students move respectfully and independently through the halls.
Students at our school are the whole package; they're fluent in 21st century skills needed to succeed upon graduation, and they're connected and committed to community.
Though we've transitioned to digitally-based curriculum and project-based learning, our classroom hardware needs an update. With new seating options, our students will now feel like they're in a professional workplace or working at the library of an renowned university.
Last year, our school piloted a dual-enrollment writing program for juniors and seniors. Upon completion of the year-long course, students carry three credits to the college of their choice.
In order to simulate the college and career experience, we want our classroom environment to look and feel like a student lounge at one of the nation's top universities.
Currently, we have a mishmash of standard, plastic school chairs. Ergonomic and stylish seating choices maximize learning possibilities in our classroom.
These materials will help meet the physical needs required of intensive study. With your donation, our students will now be able to stand, sit, bounce or lay while writing, reading and listening.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
