Mrs. M. from Lake Jackson TX is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Heighten Awareness though Sound and Speech

My students need 28 headsets with microphones so they can listen and talk about what they have learned.

My Students

I have 4-75 minute classes. By the end of the year I would love for my students to understand and apply what they learned because they have taught it to someone else.

I have over 100 students who all come with the challenges that range from Special needs to Gifted and Talented.

Many struggle with understanding and applying science concepts to everyday life. My students are always excited when technology is involved.

My Project

With the new headphones, my students can watch videos that will help reteach concepts they may not have understood in class. It will allow my dyslexia students to listen to what they see instead of trying to read and become frustrated. The headset with a built-in microphone will also allow them to teach others by recording what they know by video or recording their voice while using Google Drawing or any type of drawing app.

Currently my students are able to retain information, but not apply what they know.

Through this added piece to their technology I hope they will be able to better understand the concepts that are taught because they are able to reteach what they know to someone else.
