My Students

Putting into words the students I get the opportunity to spend my day with is challenging. They are so enjoyable. In 7th and 8th grade, my students are trying to find themselves. They are learning so much about the world around them. They are at an age where they see the dark line between good and bad fading to a gray haze. They are looking for answers to big questions and are passionate about the things they believe in. Many of my students turn to books to find their answers in my Language Arts class.

I have students who read for pleasure or to escape their home lives, and I have other students who read to get an edge on their future competition.

One of the options for students is to listen to audio-books. This way students can read a book that might be above their level, and still have an understanding of that book and enjoy their reading experience.

My Project

My students often ask if a book has an audiobook, because they want to read something that is slightly above their ability. The next concern is typically if the student has headphones to listen to the audiobook during independent reading time in class. Usually, students do not have headphones.

I want to level the playing field, so all students can read any book they want; despite their reading level.

Headphones allow students to follow along and hear the proper pronunciation of words they may not know otherwise. They also allow for my English Learners to hear the story where their English reading may be lower. Headphones will also help when students are completing assignments online and have a helpful video they can watch to better understand the content they are practicing.
