Ms. Kravetz from New York NY is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students noise cancelling headphones so that they can focus while reading or writing, despite outside noise and distractions.
I teach a reading/writing workshop and a literature course to 9th - 12th graders in a NYC alternative, portfolio based assessment school. The work they do in my classes will culminate in a performance based assessment task that students will add to their graduation portfolios.
Our goal is to develop life long readers, writers and complex thinkers.
We are excited to read texts by a variety of authors and to experiment with writing in multiple genres. Students work both independently and in groups to accomplish their reading and writing goals.
I love their energy, passion and individualism!
I am asking for a set of noise cancelling headphones to offer students while reading or writing. Many of my students have IEP's (individualized education plans) that specify they are easily distracted and need separate work space. However, this separate space isn't always available or even ideal for being part of a learning community.
This resource will help easily distracted students tune out noise and distractions that pull them away from their imaginative worlds of reading and writing.
In a time when so many students are addicted to hand held devices and attention spans are getting shorter and shorter, nurturing sustained focus on reading or writing seems more important than ever.
