TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need Chromebooks and Time for Kids magazines in order to learn about current events and how things that happen today can potentially effect the future.
My students live in a low-income/high poverty, urban school district. They are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom, with challenges including emotional trauma, a high mobility rate, and many other special needs. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and 99% receive a free lunch and breakfast. My students are 70% Latino and 30% African-American. The majority of my students are far below the national and state standards in reading and math.
One subject that students need more in depth knowledge about is social studies. Learning about social studies and history helps develop students' ability to think critically. To make my social studies class more exciting, I would like to regularly include current events.
Learning about current events makes students aware of the world around them.
Time for Kids keeps students updated about things that are important to them. Time For Kids gives students access to interesting stories in kid-friendly terms. It will allow my students to stay knowledgeable of local and world events. They will be able to make the text-to-self, and text-to-world connections needed to debate subject matter and even come up with ideas about how to make a difference.
The Chromebooks will be used to help students research historical events related to what is currently happening in the world today. Some of the topics that they are interested in include politics and social justice.
With these necessary materials, my students can learn, teach others, and begin their own projects which will assist them in becoming active and positive contributors to society.
