The Power of Projectors!

My students need a projector!

My Students

Making history realistic is a struggle when my students can not "see" what we are talking about! We do not have a projector in our Social Studies classroom which prevents my co-teacher and I from sharing pictures, videos, and other valuable resources with the whole class.

I am the Special Education Teacher in the Inclusion program at a Title 1 school in Brooklyn, NY.

About 1/3 of the students in my class of IEPs and receive modifications and services to help them succeed. Many of my students fall into the lowest third school-wide and citywide. They are from diverse minority backgrounds and travel a long distance to get to my school. They struggle to do well and are faced with much adversity in their daily lives.

My Project

I travel with my students to English, Reading, Math, Science and Social Studies. The easiest way for my students to understand any of these topics is by seeing! Since history is not a "hands-on" subject, my students would benefit from the use of videos, pictures and online resources available. There are webquests, virtual tours, etc. that can help my students to see what we are learning about.

It is so important for my students to have every chance to succeed.

Many of them know school is important but struggle to see the relevance to their everyday lives. History is especially hard for them to discover the current day applications. This projector will augment our History curriculum in an incredible way and help my students to succeed.
