We All Want to See and Hear!

My students need a LCD projector, an A/V cart and computer speakers.

My school is home to children of extreme poverty. Most of them have never left the city and don't consider that an option for their future. My students live in the poorest congressional district in the country; approximately 99% receive free lunch and 85% live below the poverty line. Demographically speaking, the 70% of our students are Hispanic (from the Dominican Republic) and the remaining students are African/African American.

Our school's technology is very limited. Over 30 teachers must share two projectors and three televisions. Usually when using this technology, we encounter many obstacles. There are many times when half of our classes are able to learn in a multimedia classroom and the other half must have the event, photos, films, or music be described to them due to technical difficulties. It is common as well, that when the technology is functional, most students cannot hear or see. With an LCD projector all of these problems will be alleviated to create a more interactive learning environment.

As a Social Studies classroom we have the unique opportunity to view political debates, documentaries, use slide shows, interactive maps, listen to sound clips, and much more. Having an LCD projector in our classroom will not only make our Social Studies class more engaging, interactive, and help to hook those students who are visual learners, but will also allow students more creativity when thinking about our classroom and different project opportunities.

Your help in purchasing an LCD projector will ensure that all of my students will have an equal opportunity to grow and learn to pursue education outside of our classroom. I know how excited they will be when they realize they can learn through so many different avenues. They will gain a thirst for knowledge and education, which will only benefit them in the future.
