Product Description
Activity Guide: What’s Your Listening Style?

Use this short activity to introduce or enhance audiobook listening for all ages, from toddler to senior citizen. This listening style analysis can take place as a solo activity, through home-based parent-child interaction, in a lecture presentation with a hands-on session at a public library, or as a classroom-based activity using printed handouts. Allow 40 minutes to an hour to complete.

Activity Guide: Active Listening

Use this method to enhance the use of audiobooks in an instructional setting, incorporating the educational benefits of audio in a technology-rich, multi-sensory environment. Use the simple Active Listening lesson to foster student engagement and introduce analysis of audio-specific characteristics, an ideal follow-up to the What’s Your Listening Style activity. Before independent use of the Active Listening handout, model as a single period, whole-class activity with a short read-along audio/picture book displayed or projected by a document camera, with the audio played through speakers.
