My English class is typical. We read, we write, and we learn. However, there are many things that my students need to learn this school year.
My students are from low-income families.
About 90% qualify for the free lunch program. Some of them live with grandparents or are in foster homes. That's why I want them to succeed in school. This will lead to them going to college, which in turn will lead to them finding jobs and becoming successful adults.
I have many students but some have special needs. They need materials read to them multiple times in order to comprehend. I would like to put together a listening center so that students can have materials read to them and they can push play or stop the reading to take notes.
A listening center would help my students with learning disabilities to comprehend the reading.
I have a CD player but I just need headphones. The students will listen at their own speed and get a better understanding. A listening center will help my students to become better readers.
