Goal

My goal is have my students take advantage of the benefits of using audio recordings in the classroom. To do this, we need a digital recorder. 

 

What will be done with my students

I plan to have the students create podcast to explain reading, math and science concepts: Author's Purpose, Main Idea, Part-Part Whole, living things etc. They will be able to show mastery by explaining the concept in detail. Also, Students will be able to use the recorder to record book discussions within each small group. Students will sit with me and read as I record them reading a selection. I will play-back the recording so the student will be able to listen to and critique his/her own reading: fluency, pace, and reading expressions. This is a very powerful instructional tool to use with students at all achievement levels. I plan to implement this resource into my plans as soon as I receive the device. 

 

Benefits to my students

There are many benefits to using audio recording in the classroom. It develops students' confidence socially and academically. It also encourages collaboration and cooperative work. It can also be used as a reading fluency assessment tool.
