I teach 7th grade at Winton Middle School in Hayward, California. We are a Title 1 school, with the majority of our students being on the free/reduced lunch program. We have a large number of English Language Learners at our school and our staff works very hard at reaching these students in particular. I teach over fifty 7th grade language arts students each day. At the 7th grade level, my students are required to give many formal presentations. During the year they will present essays, book reports and persuasive arguments. They will also read stories, books and articles from our classroom "author's chair." Many of my English Language Learners are not very skilled and/or confident about giving presentations, as language is still an obstacle for them. A wonderful way to help the students improve their presentation skills is through letting them practice on a tape recorder, then allowing them to listen to the tape so they can evaluate themselves. I would like to start a listening center in the classroom where the students can do this. We will need six tape recorders for a listening center post, as well as six sets of headphones and microphones. In addition, I am asking for as many blank audio tapes as possible.
