Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

All students are capable of learning and are better at it when provided with the necessary resources and materials. I teach English II, grade 10, in a high-need community.

Our school uses a curriculum in which most of the computer labs are reserved for the math classes, as most of the math classes are obligated to visit the computer lab twice a week, for most of our 80 minute periods. Because of the aforementioned my students are rarely able to spend much time in the computer lab and are unable to complete papers and conduct research. Students are often times faced with needing to continue such tasks at home or other places in which they have access to computers and/or Internet access. Students are also faced with not having the proper storage device to save work. Because a lot of my students come from low-income families, securing a USB drive is difficult for a lot of them.

If a USB drive is purchased for each of my rising sophomores, the issue of the shortage of computers will be alleviated to a certain extent in that they will have tools to properly save work and continue where they were previously working.

As previously stated, most students do well academically when given the necessary tools. Although my students do not come from wealthy backgrounds, they still deserve adequate tools and resources. Your contribution will make it possible for my students to continue to learn while utilizing technology, which is becoming a bigger part of our world every day.
