Audiobooks are a research-validated tool for improving vocabulary, comprehension and literacy skills for young readers of all abilities. Especially effective with emerging, reluctant and ESL readers, recorded book programming is simple to incorporate into the classroom curriculum, and easy on the pocketbook too. No special equipment or software needed! Audiobooks can also be incorporated into the school library and media center's strategies to keep the attention of their "2.0" students with new devices such as the Playaway, a single title recorded book in a tiny package, perfect for 'tween' and teen readers with "press and play" sensibilities. Time-honored reading strategies such as sustained silent reading and independent reading are completely supported with the use of recorded books by allowing listeners, who often exhibit verbal comprehension two years ahead of reading level, to acquire vocabulary and confidence by reading the text while listening.

A panel of reading experts from both the media center and the classroom will guide Webcast attendees through a variety of best practices and strategies for incorporating recorded books in your institution's literacy programs. 

For expert information and advice, register today!
