All Listenwise stories include curated comprehension questions and discussion themes to promote dynamic engagement with lesson content. By guiding students through a purposeful examination of the subjects, we aim to build a thorough understanding of stories.
Here are options for how to use these questions and themes:
Whole Group Listens
Engage with Listenwise stories by examining discussion themes as a group. By exploring different perspectives on a topic, assist students in making connections and thinking deeply about the content.
Include the Comprehension Questions in a digital Listenwise asynchronous written assignment, which works well as a follow-up to synchronous listening activities. These questions provide an opportunity for formative assessment and allow students to practice their writing skills.
After listening to a story, utilize the Discussion Themes to allow students to demonstrate writing skills and deeper thinking. These questions are also great prompts for argumentative writing practice.
