Check out our Instructional Strategies for Teaching with Listenwise toolkit for additional strategies and see examples from teachers who use Listenwise in a variety of ways.
How to Integrate Listenwise into Instruction
Introduce a New Topic
Keep it simple and listen as a class! Hook students’ interest in a new curriculum topic and facilitate a group discussion (every story has listening comprehension and discussion questions).
Supporting English Learners with Listenwise
Customize the supports, organizers and questions students see for each Listenwise assignment. Use them to introduce a topic or review content after listening as a class. (2 min)
Build Academic Language & Listening Skills
Whole Group Listening
Scaffold an activity by pre-teaching vocabulary and listening together (with the transcript). Multiple listens help develop listening skills and build students’ language confidence!
