Turn Up the Volume on Learning–My DonorsChoose Project

Please help me help fund my DonorsChoose project, Turn Up the Volume on Learning!  All donations of any amount are TRULY appreciated. I am requesting 15 headsets with microphones so that my students have easy and daily access to these tools to enhance our learning experiences in CommonLit and Seesaw.  We will use the headsets to:

  1.  Take advantage of the read aloud feature in CommonLit, a resource we are using as a digital textbook this year.
  2.  Record audio notes to describe their work and reflect on how their work shows mastery of Language Arts standards.
  3.  Record video notes (we need the headsets to capture the audio clearly) to describe their work and reflect on how their work shows mastery of Language Arts standards.

You can read more here about how I’ve used Seesaw in the past with my students, and I’m excited to make this tool a centerpiece of our literacy lives with my 8th graders.
