My students are from a low-income high poverty area of town. They are very diverse and many of them speak very little English. They have to work extra hard to learn as they have to learn the language as well as content. My students are sweet and highly motivated to learn. They love school as it is a safe and loving environment. Twenty-five percent of our students were directly affected by Hurricane Harvey making it difficult to get the supplies and resources they need for school.
My class needs good, dependable headphones to use on a daily basis for the computers and iPads in our classroom. Many of them can not afford to supply their own. The headphones will reduce the amount of distraction the students encounter when they are using these devices. We use these devices daily to listen to reading, to play educational games, and for research. Without headphones they get very distracted and can not focus on the material they are supposed to be learning. These headphones will give my students an opportunity to learn without getting distracted by what is going on around them.
