Media for the Classroom

My students need good quality speakers to use when they are watching historical documentaries since the speakers in the LCD Projectors are terrible.

My Students

Ever try to use an LCD projector and notice that the speakers/sound is too low and poor quality? My students experience this problem every time they are watching a historical based documentary in class. The class needs good quality speakers to connect to the LCD Projector. Please help my students.

The entire school qualifies for free lunches since its a low social-economic area.

My students might be generally economically unfortunate, but they love learning. They enjoy using media in the classroom just like any other kid does in the more affluent areas.

My Project

I'm always excited to use my PowerPoint presentations and lecture with each and every lesson. I feel very limited when I can not show a DVD historical documentary because the sound quality is terrible. My lessons will be enhanced by good quality documentaries with these speakers.

I have managed to borrow and purchase many great historical Dvd's that the students enjoy but they dread the terrible sound quality of the LCD Projector.

Therefore we need good speakers to connect to the LCD Projector.
