"The dream is free, but the hustle is sold separately" -unknown
This motivational quote has become part of my teaching philosophy.
I teach five sections of English courses. My students come from diverse social, economic and cultural backgrounds. Some of them are first generation citizens, while others have recently left their home countries and moved to the United States. They love creative projects that utilize technology and that are student driven. For this reason I create inquiry-based units to motivate them to explore complex issues that are relevant to their lives.
Building Student engagement is my priority. In my experience students are motivated when they are given opportunities that enhance their learning such as video production and podcasting. Thanks to your generous donations we received our RODE microphones last week. The only iteam we need to complete the video set-up are phone stands.
The phone stands will help students hold their phones while they record their videos.
I have also ordered one more microphone that will connect to any android phone.
My students are excited to start using the new audio equipment. Their first assignment will be to create a movie trailer based on the short story they chose to read for their independent reading project. Your donation will make a difference in our classroom. Thank you for supporting my students.
