My Students

I teach two groups of 6th graders at a Title 1, intermediate (5-6) school outside of Asheville, NC. This is a great group of students with a high level of economic and emotional needs. The school is approximately 80% free/reduced lunch. We are lucky enough to have a very generous community who contributes to the district whenever possible, but they are still unable to meet the overall need for supplies and materials for the school.

Many of our students are struggling readers.

In order for them to increase their comprehension, their reading instruction has many aspects. One of these is auditory learning. They still benefit, significantly, from being read to.

My Project

Listen and Learn!

My students need headphones.

There are several situations where they need them for testing and practicing skills with auditory instructions on their devices.

I would like a class set of headphones so my students can focus better on assessments and applications for learning on their devices. There are several times when a student needs to work on their computer independently. There are also quite a few times when all students need to work on their devices. It has been proven that struggling and ESL readers improve when text is read to them.

In order to promote differentiation, individualization, and student-centered learning, it's important for students to focus on their own tasks/activities instead of having to tune out the noises and sounds around them.

Students will be able to work at their own pace if they are not distracted by the audio on other devices in the room.
