Thanks for the responses about audiobooks. I’ll post the responses in a little bit, just to see if I get any more.
My plan is to try to start one for use with my ELL students and struggling readers. @quillelizabeth pointed out that AB’s limit a reader’s voice which is I why want to use them for students who are still struggling with reading comprehension or are reluctant readers. I think I’m going to pilot a listening station in my ELL class and see how it goes. I think I will probably set up a donorschoose project to try to fund it. Audiobooks ain’t cheap, man.
Ooh! In the same vein: anyone have any good apps or sites that have an audio and or visual component to reading? My co-teacher has a subscription to RAZ kids which I’m still fooling around with but my ELLs seem to be enjoying and using. Any other suggestions?
