Headphone Help

My students need headphones.

My Students

Students are immersed in a world rich with resources. I want them to learn to use and be critical of the resources that are at their fingertips.

My school has 850 students in grades 6 through 8.

Students come from a range of diverse backgrounds. 26% of our students are English Language Learners. 41% of our students are economically disadvantaged. Students with learning disabilities make up 16% of our population and students speak 14 different languages. Regardless of their background or situation, students are curious and strive to succeed. In my classes, I work with 185 of these students. They work hard, encourage each other, and grow in many ways every day. Students like to interact with and use technology.

My Project

In 6th and 7th grade, students learn how to compare and contrast a text with a video, audio, or multimedia version and analyze how it impacts the work. In order to do this, students need access to headphones so that they can access resources on line at their own speed. Some students need to watch or hear something more times than others. Headphones allow them to work at their own pace and to select content that is relevant to them. We also read books together in class and listen to the audio version of texts. Headphones will allow students to read independently or with the text at their own pace, allow students who struggle with reading skills to access the same text as more advanced readers, and will also allow students who were absent to catch up quicker by listening to the audio version of the text.

Having headphones will make a tremendous difference in my classroom.

It will allow students to have some choice in their learning, work at their own pace, and provide access for struggling learners. It will also save time by allowing all students access to the same resource.
