Help me give my students durable and lightweight headphones provided by Koss to allow them to engage with their Read 180 reading intervention software program as well as listen to audiobooks during independent reading time.
I teach at an urban school in the city of Lancaster. My students are opinionated, passionate, and exuberant. Their energy is abundant and if channeled, their creativity and ingenuity thrives. Though my students are all reading below their current grade level, they persevere and push through challenges.
My students often don’t have the resources other students have to enhance their learning experience.
However, since we have iPads now, the students can engage with various apps and software to demonstrate and apply their knowledge and skills.
Having working headphones will make a huge difference in my students’ learning. Headphones will aid in classroom management and conditions of learning.
They will be able to engage in their learning and minimize distractions.
They can “get in the zone” and interact with their Read 180 software which requires them to listen to passages as well as hear words related to word recognition and spelling tasks.
Headphones also keep the room quiet while others are working on other activities. This helps with classroom management and limits confusion as students often get answers wrong due to interruptions. Hep me keep these students focused and “in the zone” with headphones.
