If you are planning on assigning a book project for Black History Month, the Reading Fair would be a great format to use.
You can read about the guidelines for projects, view the rubric and how-to guides, and see pictures of past projects on the school website.
There are also examples of past projects on display in the library.

GCS Moves to Windows-based Tablets
The district has adopted a process of using a Windows based platform for all GCS technology needs. Technology purchases made by utilizing the procurement card or school checkbook funds need to be in compliance with the Windows-based platform as well. These purchases will be reviewed during the normal auditing process and findings of non-compliance will be reported similar to all other findings. The same applies to any donations made to your school.
I am inquiring about what this means for Donors Choose projects, but the language in the District's communication implies that teachers seeking technology for their classroom, even through outside funding sources like Donors Choose, should request Windows-based devices, not Apple products.
