My students come from challenging environments where aggression is often the answer to many problems. Some of my students have home, community, and other issues. Some of them have trouble interacting appropriately with one another, teachers, and administrators. These students have sometimes gone through some type of trauma, a divorce, or been the victims of abuse or neglect. Our district is 100% free lunch for all students.
My students come from high crime and poverty-stricken areas.
Basic necessities are not often a given. My students often feel as if no one notices them or acknowledges their positive behavior only the negative. My students need multiple opportunities to learn and be successful in many different ways. Sports activities are a way to make a difference in your lives.
Have you ever not had what you needed to complete and activity? My students lack resources to complete their high school projects using power point. My special need students sometimes need more help. My students need a projector and a computer that they can check out to complete electronic homework assignments and presentations. Many of them don't have computers at home . This will allow them a chance to check out the electronics and headphones and do their electronic homework. Interactive homework is a fun way for students to practice their skills and share their learning with their families. Students will share their learning with their families, practice social skills, and reinforce skills worked on at school in a much more exciting manner than traditional homework! Homework in my class will be fun and strengthen the home - school connection.
Electronic homework and projects facilitates learning; they allow learners to continuously try to reach a goal all while practicing skills without feeling overwhelmed or threatened.
Having this equipment that they can check out to complete assignments will allow them more time to practice, give them a chance to teach their family, and provide them a chance to have fun with their education!
