Anyone have an audiobook library in their classroom?

I want to start building one and incorporate a listening station in my classroom.  If you have one, please tell me about it: your class/students’ ages, students’ reading levels, how it’s worked for you, how you use it…anything you can think of.

Students, if you have experience in using a listening station in your educational career, or have any experience/opinions on using audiobooks for reading/language arts please respond as well.

I will post responses.

  10. quillelizabeth answered: I’m studying to become an English teahcer and I find that AB’s take the reality out of reading - they take away a person’s inner voive!
