Michelle Gallagher is a Science Teacher at Columbine High School. She was awarded a grant to purchase a Document Camera for her classroom.
“An Academic Foundation grant allowed me to purchase a document camera that I use on a daily basis in my classroom. With the document camera, I have been able to demonstrate to my students how to organize their interactive scientific notebook, exhibit exemplars of student work and videotape lessons that have detailed picture processes like photosynthesis and cellular respiration. The videotaped lessons provide students that were absent or struggling with the content an opportunity to watch the video at home. This provides extra support for students and allows them to excel in the classroom.”
