Let's Get Listening

Help me give my students headphones for the ability to stay focused during online testing and access to the world through listening to learning on our district math and reading programs.

My Students

My students come to my class eager to learn.

I teach at a small inner-city school.

Our neighborhood is located in an impoverished area of the city. Many of my students are English Language Learners and require many visual cues, schema building and adaptations to everyday teaching.

Currently, our school system is participating in new reading, writing, math and typing programs in hopes of improving scores on high stake testing. Every little change requires more preparation and needs for my class.

My class is ready to learn and will benefit so much with some outside support from friends like you.

My Project

My students are thriving this academic year. The learning that takes place daily is amazing. We have been fortunate enough to receive, from our school district, Chromebooks to share within our grade. In addition to Chromebook access, we have available math, reading, typing and google classroom for students to utilize and grow independently while being monitored and assessed.

The gains in student learning, quietly and at an individual pace, with this technology will have a tremendous impact on student achievement.

However, having a class of 24 students, half of which are English learners creates the necessity for headphones to quiet the room for individual learning. Many times my students need to be able to listen to the lessons in order to be successful. These headphones will provide this while make learning fun and relevant.
