Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are English Language Learners. Many of them have just moved to the country and speak very little English. The program I teach is designed to improve their language skills through reading and writing. We do a lot of speaking and listening, therefore we are always learning.

My school has an extremely diverse population.

There are students from all over the world, and who speak a variety of languages. There are a few students who have just moved to the country and are in the early stages of Language Acquisition. They are eager to learn and improve.These students are placed in what is called and English Language Development class which is designed to accelerate their language acquisition, as well as in content and grade level courses. These students are challenged daily.

My Project

I will be able to utilize the LiveScribe pens to record students speaking. Through one-on-one interactions, I can work with each student to address specific areas of language they are struggling with. Additionally, students can use the pens to listen to themselves speak, or to hear a proficient English speaker. The pens will help me keep data on how each student is progressing within the class. This will help me with create data driven instruction, and will allow students to create goals for themselves.

The LiveScribe Pen will improve my classroom by providing me with an opportunity to provide immediate feedback to my students, it will improve my planning and instruction, and will give my students an opportunity to create language goals.

By being able to hear themselves speak, and listen to a proficient English speaker, they will be able improve and progress, and eventually exit the English Language Development program.
