The goal of my project is quite simple; I want to give my students the ability to access our online textbook while in my classroom. The functionality of the kindle will support high achieving students, motivate reluctant readers, and expose all of my 6th graders to reading and comprehending text from a technological platform.

Goal

The goal of my project is quite simple; I want to give my students the ability to access our online textbook while in my classroom. The functionality of the kindle will support high achieving students, motivate reluctant readers, and expose all of my 6th graders to reading and comprehending text from a technological platform. 

 

What will be done with my students

My students will primarily use the kindle to access the Discovery Techbook, their online science textbook. I also plan on letting students use the kindles individually and collaboratively to access other books, learning apps, and educational websites, which will serve as additional resources to connect with the curriculum being taught in class. 

 

Benefits to my students

Our district is moving to an online science textbook this coming school year. The 'techbook' utilizes an inquiry-based format that includes rich, standards-aligned content such as video, audio, text, interactives with hands-on activities, and virtual labs that help teachers differentiate instruction and personalize learning. It's great, but my school does not have a 1:1 student-computer ratio. Wait... how are they going to use all these cool resources to learn without access to them?

Having the Kindle Fire Tablets will give my students the opportunity to use the interactive 'techbook' to its full potential, without having to wait on the technology to access it. The kindles will also provide a tool which students can use to research with when they're diagnosing their patients or to build an atom with as they explore atomic structure in a virtual simulation.

When I have engaged, motivated students interacting with the content, there is always higher student achievement! And that is exactly what your donation will help to happen.

Thank you! 

 

Describe the Students

My students have a desire to learn. We are a title one school with the majority of our population being African American. I teach all academic levels. My students vary from low to high performers and all deserve the chance to meet their full potential.
