Mrs. Burke from Elizabeth Cty NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Latin Language Listening

My students need a tape player to listen to Latin tapes that align with their Latin textbooks.

  • $329 goal

My students are Latin students in grades 9-12 in a rural, high-need community. A high proportion of our students are minority students and come from families whose parents never completed college.

The speakers on our old tape player are blowing out, and it is hard to hear the Latin accurately. The tapes are lively and fun to listen to, but not if we can hardly hear them because of the vibration in the current speakers. I sometimes cannot turn the system up loud enough so that the entire classroom can hear.

Students need these tapes to improve their Latin listening and reading comprehension skills and to learn how to pronounce Latin correctly. I also sometimes like to bring in Cd's of music with Latin lyrics, so a player that would play Cd's would be ideal.

Latin vocabulary and reading practice builds English reading and writing skills. It prepares students for terminology needed in a variety of college classes, especially medicine and law. By funding this project you are helping my students achieve their dreams of being successful college graduates and of being future doctors and lawyers.
