How to Incorporate Storytelling in Your Lessons

One of the constant challenges teachers face is to get and keep their students’ attention. But the answer is simple. Tell a good story.
This webinar will present the untapped value in teaching with podcasts in the classroom. Monica will present the latest research on why auditory learning is so powerful and the benefits of teaching listening skills and how to assess them.

Through the power of listening you can introduce more complex language, vocabulary, and topics to your middle and and high school students, especially for emerging readers and English Language Learners. The compelling real world audio stories are the perfect authentic listening situations to engage students and improve their listening and literacy skills. Research shows that if you are a good listener, you are a good reader.
