Help me give my students headphones to explore multimedia lessons on their Chromebooks in the classroom.
Our school is a large high school in a diverse community. We have students from many backgrounds and cultures, as well as ability levels. Our classrooms are also very diverse and include special education students, English Language Learners, and advanced students.
Our 9th grade English curriculum focuses on teaching students about relationships and the individual's role in this community.
We study empathy, heroes, choice and consequence, and dreams, in the hope that our students will be able to develop into the best versions of themselves. They are kind, curious, and motivated students who just want to succeed, despite obstacles that may have been put in their way. I teach my students that we read literature to learn about our place in the world, and I know they will achieve great things in the future. Our school is a large high school in a diverse community.

Our school is 1:1 with technology, so all of our students have Chromebooks to use in the classroom. However, many of them do not have access to earbuds or headphones. They do not have the funds to purchase these themselves. The English department prides ourselves on using innovative technology to help reach all our students. My classroom includes special education students, English Language Learners, and more, all learning at their own pace.
I often differentiate and enhance lessons using multimedia- including audio and video files.
Sharing these resources with students individually, using Google Classroom, allows students to have self-directed learning. Students can explore multiple resources, and I can differentiate my lessons well.
It also allows me to appeal to their passions and interests more, including songs, film clips, and more. Unfortunately, that can get very chaotic if all students don't have headphones. Some students really struggle in a noisy environment. Having a class set of headphones will prevent this problem and help allow me to plan even more interactive lessons.
