My Students

My students are from a very diverse community. Each and every child in my comes from a different home lifestyle. Although I'll spend most the day teaching them at school, when they leave my hands, I don't know what the rest of their day could be like, and I am sometimes scared to even think about it. I want my students to walk into their classroom every day, being able to feel as though their classroom is their place of relief, their safe place, feeling as though they've come to a special place they call home.

My Project

The use of headphones occurs almost daily in our classroom. With the use of comfortable headphones, my students will be able to listen more attentively to verbal directions given on the programs that they use frequently throughout the week. Each and every student in my classroom have a set of headphones they were given to use, but they complain about the pain the headphones give to their ears, and the volume not working properly. My students at times become frustrated and don't enjoy using them which effects their learning drastically in ways they don't realize.

My students are attentive and more engaged in their work when if they had headphones that were more comfortable and adaptable for their needs.

The Logitech headphones I have selected for this project will help my students by giving them a chance to focus, and not worry about other distractions around, as well as feeling uncomfortable. These headphones with microphones will help the low and SPED students, who struggle with phonics, because of the microphones that are included in the headphones.

This project will fulfill the needs of my students in the littlest ways, helping their learning in the long run.
