Help me give my students headphones for individualized learning and a focused environment.
My students come from a city that a local newspaper article reported as having "the poorest children in New York and the most intense metro segregation in the state." It also reported that our district is probably the worst school district in the state.
Those statements, however, are not representative of the motivation and ability that my students have.
All of our 8th graders are taking the 9th grade algebra regents exam at the end of the year. This shift was first implemented last year and we saw many gains along with success.
Our school strives to teach using the Workshop Model, which allows students to work in smaller groups or individually while the teacher rotates through groups of students.
We are asking for a class set of over-the-ear headphones. If you came to our classroom on a typical day, you would see two teachers working with small groups of students and most of the other students working on Chromebooks. We assign a lot of practice on two of our favorite math sites: Delta Math and Khan Academy.
Headphones will help keep our classroom calm, cool, and collected.
We are asking for headphones for two simple reasons: 1. Many of our students focus better with their choice of music, and not everyone else may want to hear it. 2. We occasionally assign videos to go along with the lesson and practice. Sometimes students go back and watch the videos if they are stuck. It can get loud when 10+ students are all playing their own music and/or videos.
