Recorded Books and Lesson Plans with Recordings

Some teachers are trying to find new ways of incorporating technology into their lesson plans in a way that is fun, inviting and reaches out to auditory learners. I happened across this blog site that contained some very interesting lesson plans using audio recordings and books. I invite you to check it out. In particular, audio books can help struggling readers learn new vocabulary, read faster at home and improve their comprehension levels. It is strongly recommended that they listen to an audio recording of the reading and follow along in their books. In terms of usage, it is not appropriate for students to just listen to an audio book recording of their text without having the words in front of them as well. However, for fun in elementary classrooms, students can have a story listening corner using audio recordings. It may also help students comprehend Shakespeare a little better in the secondary classroom. What I noticed first, however, was the lesson plan title for listening to the sounds of bees and insects. The title was “Make a Joyful Noise.” That is one way to introduce praise and worship to God as Nature also has its own ways of showing praise. 🙂  I hope that the site will be helpful to you. I will also post it in the handy links section under Teaching Methodologies as “Audio Recordings and Lesson Plans.”
