Listenwise

One of the ways to improve upon the listening comprehension skills of students is to engage the student in an auditory exercise and then assess them (using a variety of methods) over what it is they listened to.

Listenwise, is devoted to student literacy. From their website they state:

“Listenwise, is an award-winning listening skills platform. We harness the power of listening to advance literacy and learning in all students. Our collection of podcasts and public radio keeps teaching connected to the real world and builds student listening skills at the same time.

We believe in the importance of listening for student success.
We believe in the power of a great story.
We believe in literacy for all.” Read more about them here.

Below are some science specific articles that I use in my classroom (approximately 3-4 per month), that I think helps students with a type of literacy often times overlooked.
