Ms. Coenen from Alexandria VA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Headphones to Encourage Active Listening!

Help me give my students each a set of headphones to use while in the classroom. Our students use 1:1 laptops daily, and having a class set of headphones will minimize distraction.

My Students

I teach a group of 18 students. They have worked hard to build a classroom community that not only strives for successful learning, but successful relationships.

My students are innovators, learners, and collaborators.

100% of the students in my class are English Language Learners, that all receive ESOL intervention. 2 of my students receive speech intervention, and many of the students receive reading intervention. Despite the many barriers that they have faced, these students have shown immense strength and determination.

My Project

Our students use technology daily in our classroom. They complete assignments, take their assessments, and participate in multiple activities using their laptops every day. While the school supplies the laptops, they do not supply a set of headphones which leaves many of the students without.

The students deserve a classroom with a quiet and welcoming space to learn and work in.

Having individual sets of headphones will allow the students to focus on their tasks, with minimal distraction from the sounds of other laptops. This will also allow the students to utilize different computer programs that touch on different educational needs!
