My Students

How can we help our students succeed without the necessary supplies and access to technology? That's a struggle for many of the students in my classroom, and a big struggle for me as a teacher.

I teach students who don't have access to many of the things most students take for granted when they go to school.

My goal is to help these students achieve their very best, and I want to equip them to be able to reach any goal they set.

My Project

I love to make history "come alive" for my students and one way I have found to do that is to have students watch videos with headphones. Students use chromebooks with headphones to watch and listen to videos either on google classroom, Edpuzzle, or nearpod and complete worksheets, summarize information for research papers, or review for tests. Many of my students get distracted or begin talking to peers when I show the videos on the Smartboard, but are able to focus better with headphones. In addition, by allowing them to watch individually with headphones, they can go back and rewatch sections in order to comprehend the information.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student interest , you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.

Having students see and hear history has a tremendous impact on how much of the information they retain, but more than anything else it makes them want to gain more information about the event.
