You are right! $300.00 would go a long way! If my class was selected, the money would be used to purchase a classroom set of novels and a FLIP video camera. Last year, I learned an awesome, new strategy to teach reading comprehension using a dramatic approach. Students, of course, love to see themselves on TV - teachers, sometimes not so much. Back to the information you're looking for. I have fifty-nine students divided into three homerooms. They would be thrilled to be able to read a modern novel and explore understanding through drama. Thank you so much for this opportunity.
