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?
