My Students

My school is located in the inner city and the students range from advanced to low level in comprehension and math. My students are mostly African American with a few Caucasian students. Some of my students find it hard to focus or be fully engaged in the lesson because of their abilities. They need extra support to learn the given curriculum and my higher students need enrichment to meet their academic needs.

Despite all their challenges, my students are highly curious, imaginative and ready to explore.

They love to do hands on activities and learning through many avenues. They discuss topics, piece together information to form hypothesis and enjoy from seeing if they are correct.

My Project

Reading and Comprehension is a big issue in my classroom. It is a daily struggle that effects the students growth by limiting their ability to understand of the focus, follow procedures and grasp major concepts. My students need 40 headphones for audio and reading assistance in the classroom. The headphones will allow the students to work independently at their own pace to through investigations. Computer programs for extra support or enrichment on major concepts in Science are accessible online with reading assistance that explore the concepts through interactive activities that students can work through at their pace.

Th headphones will open up the world of Science to students that learn more through pictures and activities than words.

The headphones will open another avenue for students to learn and hopefully shrink the gap of achievement.
