Mrs. Becker from Indianapolis IN is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Listen to the Music!

My students need 35 Califone headphones (with adjustable volume for individual student listening preferences,) so they can listen to musical examples on their Chromebooks.

My Students

My students are musical and creative! We are an International Baccalaureate school; and so students are taught to be inquirers and ask questions in the classroom. They love learning about the cultural and geographical backgrounds of music we are singing and performing in the classroom.

Students read and write their own music rhythms, often inspired by IB themes they're learning about in the classroom.

Recent examples include friendship, Native American culture, and landforms/processes such as volcanoes, mountains, and wind erosion.

My Project

It's one thing to read about music of different cultures and lands and another to actually hear it! Using headphones with their chromebooks, and actually being able to individually listen to and hear real musical examples, will bring my music students' learning to life. They will be able to research, collaborating in small groups, become experts, and report to their classmates on the musical topics they've chosen.

Not only will students will use their headphones and chromebooks to listen to and learn about music, they will also use them to hear music they've actually created, and assess their knowledge of rhythms studied.
