Help me give my students a new Acer Chromebook to use in our Social Studies classroom!
I teach in an urban public school with over 1,000 students. The students in our school come from very diverse backgrounds and cultures. There are over 15 different languages spoken in the homes of our students, including Spanish, Portuguese, Khmer, and Vietnamese. Over 60% of our students’ homes do not speak English as their primary language and 25% of our student population receives ESL services.
Our middle school is classified as a Title I school and over 80% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch.
Our school is part of the District Reference Group "H," which is the second-lowest socioeconomic level a school can be placed in. Despite these economic barriers, our students strive for academic achievement. Our school community promotes our unique diversity and encourages students to reach their maximum learning potential.
In our social studies class, students participate in historical investigations which require them to analyze historical evidence to support an argumentative position. Students will use this new Chromebook to find and analyze primary/secondary sources on the internet and will also be able to access information that I post on our Google Classroom. My school supports a BYOD policy, but many of my students do not have their own device to bring to school with them. This Chromebook will provide more of my students with an opportunity to access our assignments digitally.
This Chromebook will provide my students with an additional piece of technology in the classroom that they can use to investigate historical topics.
The Chromebook will be used daily by my students and will become a vital resource in our classroom. Students really enjoy using technology in the classroom and a new Chromebook will help to keep more of my students engaged in historical topics. My goal is to create a digital classroom where a Chromebook is available to each and every student every single day and this Chromebook will help to accomplish this goal.
