Help me give my students Jensen CD players so our media center can have four new listening lounges for our books on CD.
My students attend a large middle school in Durham, North Carolina. 70% of our 950+ student population receives free or reduced price lunch, so supporting our community of learners is vital for their success.
Students at my school are resilient, brave, talented, dedicated, eager to learn, but facing enormous challenges.
We have a large school in a district that is continually having to make budget cuts so our staff and students are expected to do more with less on a daily basis.
As the Media Coordinator, I am always trying to bring in programs and activities that allow students to experience creating, making, and problem solving. Our students deserve this type of mind stretch especially when our school culture puts so much emphasis on testing data. Rigorous and exciting hands-on activities give our students opportunities to grow those dendrites and make those connections so they can be successful in life, not just on a standardized test.
Reading Rocks but sometimes hearing the words inspires the love of reading. Audio books are a crucial part of our diversified learning community. Currently we have three old boom boxes set up as "listening lounges" so that students can read/listen to awesome books by Kwame Alexander, Jason Reynolds, and Jacqueline Woodson.
Our Media Center's listening lounges are visited daily by students who may be struggling readers, non native speakers, and students who haven't yet found reading to be a delightful joy.
Four more listening lounges would really help accommodate all of our readers needs during their IRT (individual reading time).
