Classroom Listening Center
Keeping students engaged is the most important aspect of being a good teacher. While much of this has to do with a teacher's manner, enthusiasm, care and charisma, it can be helped along by choosing the proper tools for helping students to learn a specific subject. When it comes to reading and foreign language study, a classroom listening center can be a great addition to your learning environment.
The options available from Teacher Direct are ideal for early grades, because they are perfect for varied uses, from music and story time to individual and group reading exercises. In later grades, listening centers are most often used for teaching foreign language and English as a Second Language (ESL). Add an additional audio element to your classroom today, and do so without breaking your budget-Teacher Direct offers only the best brands at the best prices. We also offer products that are warranted for school use.
Take, for example, the Spirit® 1776 Listening Center from Califone®. It is an educator tested and approved system used in schools and libraries across the country, equipped with a stereo CD/cassette player/recorder, AM/FM radio, and six sets of stereo/mono headphones, along with speakers that are loud enough for a classroom of up to 40 students. Unlike items purchased from consumer electronics stores, it has a one-year warranty for school use.

Other Audio Visual Aids
Beyond listening centers, we offer a number of other audio-visual aids that can help stimulate student interest in learning. Audio CD and DVD players can bring life to a classroom as long as the material warrants it. An overhead projector and transparencies, when properly used, can focus attention on a number of subjects, most prominently Math.
