Ms. Tracey from Bridgeport CT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Can You Hear Me Now?

Help me give my students an audio enhancement system so they can hear the correct pronunciation of words and word sounds more clearly.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Every day at morning meeting we share how we are feeling that day and why. The majority of my students say they are happy because they are in school. We also share a goal for the day. Most of my students say their goal is to get better at reading (or math, or science).

We are a neighborhood school, and most walk to school with their parents and/or siblings.

They all receive a free breakfast and free lunch at school. They are a great group of kids that want to learn despite some of the daily hardships they may encounter.

My Project

My school has a very diversified population. For many students, English is a second language that they are learning in addition to their regular academics. An audio enhancement system will help them hear the sounds of words more clearly which will help my students to be able to spell them correctly and to pronounce them correctly. When they are better able to hear the sounds and words, it increases their comprehension and their confidence in contributing to class discussions.

In addition, research has shown that audio enhancement in the classroom has contributed to overall increased student academic performance and listening skills.

All students will be able to hear lessons from anywhere in the room. Also, students will be able to use the microphone to contribute to class discussions which can help promote self-confidence and improve speaking skills.

Using an audio enhancement system in my classroom every day, all day, will help to enhance and increase their academic performance, academic scores, listening skills, and speaking skills.
