Audiobooks

http://www.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=3751213

This article from Scholastic, offers the different ways teachers can have their students use audiobooks in the classroom. At first, I thought of audiobooks as just a sort of way for students to have a read along without the presence of a teacher or instructor, as a way to independently practice their reading skills. However, Scholastic pinpoints the different ways audiobooks can be used in an way that is influential and maximizes function in the class room. I also like how the opening paragraph summarizes the way audiobooks support literacy and help students develop reading skills. Three different ways audiobooks can be used, according to Scholastic, are in small groups, whole class listening, and independent reading. I never thought about how audiobooks could be used in a small or whole group to motivate discussion and more conceptual thinking.
