Join Listenwise and Share My Lesson for a webinar on How to Teach and Assess Listening Using Podcasts and Public Radio.
How well do your students listen? Ever wondered how to teach and progress monitor your students listening skills? Monica will discuss how teachers can use podcasts as a way to spark classroom engagement and provide authentic listening experiences to support all students: English learners, struggling readers, and grade-level readers. Until now there haven’t been any digital assessments designed for use by teachers to test and track key areas of listening comprehension. Teachers can now teach listening comprehension, using a research-based approach to identify the key areas of listening comprehension, test them and then work on improving them - just like they do with reading comprehension. By putting labels on skill strands, such as summarizing and citing evidence, these data results allow teachers to talk about performance in specific ways, and can target areas that need improvement.
