Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 100

Many students do not come to class prepared with pencils and paper.  This grant allowed us to provide pencils and paper for mathematics students so they could practice concepts and participate in class.  

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

The mathematics department at Countryside High School would like to make pencils and notebooks available to ALL students so that lack of school supplies will NEVER be a reason a student cannot perform at a high level. 

 

What will be done with my students

Teachers will provide students access to pencils and notebooks in their classrooms so that they can engage in all classroom assignments and activities. Many teachers require the students to keep a notebook of their classroom notes and assignments. The students also do exercises on the computer and they are required to "journal" the problems they come across while working on an assignment. Students are encouraged to get their own notebooks and pencils but there are always students who come without supplies. We would like to help these students out. 

 

Benefits to my students

As teachers, we would like to see a close in the achievement gap between students whose parents can afford to send their kids to school with supplies and those who cannot. Lower socio-economic students will benefit from the supplies the most.  

 

Describe the Students

The mathematics department has a very wide variety of students in our classes. As a whole, we teach to the entire school. There are all types of students mixed together.  

 

Budget Narrative

The 6-packs of Spiral Notebooks were found on Amazon for $11.21 each.
