My students need headphones to record themselves properly and then hear their performance.
Donors choose has been instrumental in helping set up a recording studio for my students. We need to continue this project with headphones.
My students live in a city that is on the brink of being bankrupt.
They are surrounded by poverty and crime, but when they come to school, I offer them a safe space. I see all 800 students over the course of the year, and they are quite diverse. They are diverse in their socio-economic status, ethnic background, but most importantly in their personal goals and interests. They are wonderful to work with and oftentimes say things far more profound than I could ever imagine.
I am requesting four pairs of studio quality headphones and a headphone amplifier, so that all students can plug the headphones in at the same time. Many times I have students that come to my classroom wanting to record themselves singing or playing music that they work on in class and after school, and this will allow a group of students to be able to do this.
This project is important because learning should be facilitated not prescribed.
Working independently in a recording studio allows students to discover things for themselves as well as about themselves. They need the equipment to be able to do this.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
