Student Shared Listening Center Rank:
Single Unit Why I need this:
See my lesson plan, "Differentiating with Audiobooks," for the full explanation. In a nutshell, these listening stations, combined with MP3 players, will allow struggling readers to listen to audiobook versions of our class novels. The audiobooks will be MP3 files recorded by the accelerated readers in my classes.
Quantity: 3 Price: $72.00
The Student Shared Listening Center is ideal for situations requiring portable equipment with quality sound.

My Philosophy:
Teachers must connect with their students in order to teach meaningfully, and nearly every student can be reached through kindness, compassion, and a good sense of humor. In addition, every student, regardless of ability, has the right to learn and to be challenged, and great educators strive to create relationships and learning environments that optimize learning for every student.
