Help me give my students tape for interactive notebooks and headphones for digital learning.
J.R.R. Tolkien once wrote, "Not all those who wander are lost."
A wall in my classroom was painted by my student, a talented graffiti artist.
The wall has the word "Think" sprawled across, with the Tolkien quote tucked in the corner. This wall is an ode to our students' opportunity to think freely. Our school is part of the District Reference Group H, which is the second lowest socioeconomic level a school can be placed in.
As a fifth-year, eighth-grade science teacher, I have already experienced the lack of funding our science program receives. The activities that we complete, both in and out of the classroom, are greatly restricted by the socioeconomic makeup of our student body, as well as the absence of a budget for laboratory supplies.
The students in our school come from very diverse backgrounds and cultures and often do not have the resources that allow them to succeed at higher levels. Many of the students are disengaged, with attendance of less than 85%, but are often discouraged by the connections made at school. Despite this, they are very willing to work in school and take the opportunity to utilize the limited resources that are available.
In an effort to create an environment that students thrive in, and reduce our ecological consumption, I would like to increase the technological capabilities of my room. In order to do this, we would like headphones to increase the capabilities of utilizing technology..
I would like to utilize headphones and interactive notebooks to cut down on our consumption of paper in the classroom.
With the headphones, students will be able to research, focus, and collaborate more effectively. I believe that this will stimulate the learning experience and encourage kids to explore different areas of environmental science which are highlighted by this new technology. The tape will be used to create our interactive notebooks and reduce the paper used.
