Info about the School Resource Center


This project aims to implement an English media resource center at a school in Ukraine. The central focus of this project is to create a series of DVDs of Americans and Ukrainians in different scenes, to correspond with the English textbooks. These DVDs are valuable for several reasons. 1. Ukrainian children do not have an opportunity to listen to native speakers, to see Americans communicating with each other, or to witness real scenes from America. 2. It will be a helpful addition to the current curriculum, as the textbooks are difficult to understand. 3. It will be visually appealing for pupils, help them to remember and understand some concepts that they haven’t been otherwise exposed to, and stimulate more interest in learning English.

Teachers will use these DVDs in their classes and distribute them to six other schools in the area. They will utilize the help of some students in making the videos, so that the children can take some ownership in the project, and get a sense of accomplishment from it.

The English department also desperately needs better English textbooks that are well-organized and advance children’s learning. The students are often frustrated with the texts and activities in the current books because they are difficult to understand and not well-formatted.

A personal video camera will be used to film additional videos. Partnership funds will be used to buy a projector, white board, DVD player, and additional textbooks for the classroom.
