Mrs. Clappin from Livermore CA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Tea-ching about the Boston Tea Party

My students need an iPad to create interview videos as well as a hot plate, costumes, tea, and tea supplies to appreciate tea and help re-create their own Boston Tea Party.

My Students

I teach many English language learners, who are anxious to succeed and learn something new each day! We have a dedicated staff of teachers at our school, who bring their best to the class and to each and every lesson they teach.

Some of my students come from homes that do not have everyday technology, such as home computers or even basic Internet access.

I teach at a Title I school where nearly 50% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch. They are working their hardest to try and learn as much as they can and to develop good study skills.

My Project

This year as I teach about the beginnings of the American Revolution I want my students to be able to feel and visualize what things may have been like for the early colonists. This year, my students will be working on their storytelling skills. After sampling tea (with milk) and talking about the ways England imposed taxes on the early colonists, my students will be creating interview videos of "colonists".

Students will be able to put themselves in the place of an early colonist and create a storytelling video using the iPad.

They will use a green screen to create their videos, transporting themselves almost back in time to understand the mindset of the people.

These videos will be shared on our class Instagram page to involve our families at home in our learning!
