Ms. O'Hagan from Portland OR is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a classroom globe! distortions!
We are a grades 1-8 alternative program within an urban school district. Our program is designed to better serve the needs of students who are talented or gifted. To qualify for admission to our program our students must demonstrate that their needs are not being met in their neighborhood school.
Many of our students are twice-exceptional.
These 2E students are considered exceptional both because of their intellectual gifts and because of their special needs. We have several students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as well as a number of students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Our class has an interest in world geography and we recently acquired a wall map. Unfortunately flat maps of the world are just that ... they are flat! Even fourth graders know the world is NOT flat! My students would be better served if I was able to teach geography concepts using a map in conjunction with a globe!
For example, in teaching US history a standard flat map does not show the West Coast of the United States relative to other countries bordering the Pacific Ocean.
Students need to see where the West Coast of the United States is in relationship to Asia and Australia for example. When discussing the acquisition of Alaska, a globe is more helpful in telling that story than a flat map is. I am also requesting a laser pointer for use with our wall map.
