Help me give my students headphones that will allow them to visit different parts of the world and learn more about various people, places and cultures.
So many times as educators we are presented with the challenge of providing a well-rounded learning experience to students that come to school with very limited cultural background experiences. Such limited exposure is often the result of environmental and social factors such as poverty, being products of single parent homes or being raised by grandparents, guardians, or even in foster care. They do not have the privilege to experience the joys and advantages that so many others take for granted. . These are the students that I encounter on a daily basis and as their teacher, I strive to provide them with those experiences that they would not normally get due to their circumstances.
Teaching social studies presents even greater obstacles for student achievement because the students do not have the point of reference or the required background knowledge to acquire the complex subject matter content.
With this in mind, the students require various forms of instruction to meet their learning goals. Yes, all students can learn but all of them do not learn the same way.
With each student having access to their own headphones to use with their laptops during class will allow them to view Social Studies content, daily online news sources that will enhance their understanding of local, state, national and world events; as well as research content knowledge for project based learning.
Learners will engage in audio and visual learning experiences that will provide greater chances to gain relevant background and cultural knowledge of people, places and cultures around the world.
Students will be able to close a gap that hinders their learning of complex social students content. This will promote their reading, writing and critical thinking skills as they strive to meet target learning goals.
