Let's Hear It for Literacy!

Help me give my students headphones to watch videos for classroom projects, create podcasts, edit and revise their digital literacy projects, and much more. Students work best with over the ear headphones as earbuds wear out or break.

My Students

I teach in a very diverse, low socio-economic area of an urban city. My middle schoolers are always teaching me something new. From dance moves to ethnic food choices, my students are always bringing something unique to the table.

Their backgrounds and culture define who they are, yet they want to be seen as more in the world.

My kids are forever impacting the way I teach, and they continually challenge me to try new things to deepen their understanding and love of school.

My Project

My students work continuously on digital literacy projects that accompany their current novel in class. One part of their project that has evolved over the years is adding music to enhance their projects. This added element has taken their projects to a new level during presentations. The Rockpapa 782 DJ Style Stereo Headphones Adjustable Headband are a resource we've used that has withstood the test of time.

Headphones allow students to work independently on their digital literacy projects that don't distract others learning.

In order to work on their projects without distraction, my students utilize the headphones almost daily during independent work time.
