Do You Hear What I Hear?

My students need headphones to use everyday in my class to utilize 21st century learning.

My Students

In my class, I create an environment where students aren't afraid to take risk, where they excel in learning and still are able to act like a kid. They each come to class with challenges of their own and are at various learning levels but that doesn't stop them from accepting my challenges and striving to achieve greatness of course while laughing along the way.

I strive to teach my students to utilize the technology we have access to in order to further their engagement and prepare them to become 21st century learners.

If you asked my students to sum up our room in one word it would be humor. You can find humor in my room everyday. Teaching social studies has to be engaging and fun so that we can take a mundane least favorite subject and turn it into a favorite subject of students and that is what I work to achieve everyday. My students, I hope will remember the experiences for years to come.

My Project

The headphones I am requesting will be used with the Chromebooks we have access to on a daily basis in my room. I teach at a low socioeconomic school with over 75% on free and reduce lunch.

Not all students can afford to buy their own earbuds or headphones and this gives my students access to uninterrupted learning by having extra in my classroom.

My students will use these headphones to work at their own pace by watching videos, interacting with primary sources such as radio, oral interviews or rewatching lecture videos. My students are more engaged with audio on their own level than as a whole class. This allows them to pause or rewatch as many times as needed without the fear or someone else knowing.

This project will allow them to continue to excel at their own learning at their own pace and comfort level.
