Ms. Carouthers from Houston TX is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Head Strong, Headsets!

Help me give my students classroom "Headsets". My students learn via lectures, reading, and online methods. Students forget, break and/or can not afford headsets. I would like a set for my classroom.

My Students

My students are special because they come form special and different backgrounds and special and different homes. Each one is special in his or her way. I love the way my students treat each other and I love the way they all try their best. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in independent learning, and this project will only help enrich their experiences more when learning online material. Headsets (headphones) are great for the kids because they can practice on their own. As they progress, they will be able to do team and independent work to build socialization. They can control the volume while they listen, work ahead, on their own level. block out other noises, and continue to learn without the other distractions.

My Project

My students learn via lectures, reading, and online methods. Students forget, break and/or can not afford headsets(headphones). If students are able to have good headset during class learning will be improved. What if I could keep a class set of headsets? It would make for a much better transition for the students and for the classroom environment. Now we're talking, or should I say, listening. These headsets would be extremely beneficial for students. As they progress, they will be able to do team and independent work to build socialization. They can control the volume while they listen, work ahead, on their own level. block out other noises, and continue to learn without the other distractions. I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
