Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a Horticulture teacher for Heide Trask HS in rural Pender County, North Carolina. We currently have 51% of our students receiving free lunch and 6.75% are English Limited. Being a poor county, with an increasing population, our funds are extremely limited. Also, we have a very diverse social and economic pool of students. Many of my students learn visually, and I would like to diversify my lessons to include those visual learners. Due to limited funds, I am unable to purchase many of the items I need for multimedia instruction. One lesson I would like to include visual material is: Insects. Therefore, I am asking donors to assist me in the acquisition of two video sets. One is called “Insects: Facts and Folklore,” and the other, “Insectia.” These two video sets would have a significant impact for my visual learners.
