This is session four of six for the series titled Literacy Projects for Adolescent English Learners
NOTE: While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on-demand and earn up to six continuing education credits.
When students create their own audio recordings, they learn how to research, collaborate, and express their creativity using authentic English language. Join Shelly Terrell as she shares how to use free, education-friendly audio recording tools to amplify student voice, including scaffolds, supports, and strategies to help students complete their projects. Participants will also have an opportunity to access done-for-you templates to create their own audio project that they can immediately use with their students.
- Evaluate a variety of free, education-friendly audio recording tools appropriate for adolescent English Learners in grades 4-12
