Headphones Are A Must for I-Ready!

Help me give my students a class set of headphones so that they can utilize an amazing program provided by our district. We saw amazing growth in our students last year and headphones are vital for this program.

My Students

Thank you for visiting my page. I am the Middle School Master Math Teacher in Southwest Detroit. our school is a Title 1 school with 100% of our students receiving free breakfast and free lunch. We have a strong connection with it’s community and parents and we want to help our children be successful.

Our students are predominately Latino and African American, come from low income homes, and so many disadvantages, yet are always willing to learn.

For many of our students, English is a second language for them and a majority of their parents speak very limited English is any.

My Project

Our district has provided us with an amazing program to help our students succeed. We saw tremendous growth however this program is very difficult to implement without headphones. Many teachers, as well as myself, purchased earbuds from the dollar store last year but they did not last. The programs tests students and gives them lessons at their tested level in both math and reading. Our students are required to complete 45 minutes of this program weekly. Students view the lessons, take notes, complete some practice and then take a quiz. Once they master the lesson, a new topic is assigned. It is very difficult for the students to focus when they are all viewing different lessons with the volume up at the same time. Having the headphones will allow them to listen to the lesson as they view the lesson. This will also help our Language Learners.
