My classroom is a place of inquiry and analysis. Students spend the year learning about American history through the analysis of various primary and secondary source documents.
Many of my students are from low economy families.
In addition, many are low functioning, sometimes two the three levels below their actual grade. The normal and old school way of teaching does not work for them. They need to learn in new and exciting ways that will engage them. To many, Social Studies is not an important subject to them.
Having a set of headphones for each student will be great! When it is time to use the computer for scavenger hunts and videos, students will be able to listen to the sound. In a class of about 30 kids, it is impossible for each student to listen to a video. It is hard for them to concentrate on the words coming out of their own computer. The purpose of each student having their own will lead to more individualized instruction and allow the student to work at their own pace. Having headphones will also help with noise control in the classroom. These headphones will be a great assets to the classroom.
