Mrs. Kennedy from Pearl City HI is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

English Engagement with Quality Headphones

My Students

My students are curious and independently driven individuals. They strive to do their best and they are looking forward to being challenged in the classroom! We use technology a lot and they enjoy the chance to stretch their learning and try new and challenging things in my classroom.

My students are looking forward to being adults that make great contributions to society one day.

They are all looking forward to succeeding at either college, a trade, or military members. They know that they are the future and the future of our country and planet depend on them.

My Project

My students view videos and watch other content in many lessons to help them engage with the texts that they read. They are also able to watch detailed instructional videos so that they can really understand a concept.

Headphones being available in my classroom would be one less thing that my students have to worry about possibly forgetting at home, losing, or even simply not being able to afford.

The use of videos for my students to watch also helps differentiate as my fastest students can work ahead to extension activities and I can work one on one with my students who need it. Headphones will be a valuable part of that in my classroom!
