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.

Workshop Description:
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.

Learning Objectives:
  • Evaluate a variety of free, education-friendly audio recording tools appropriate for adolescent English Learners in grades 4-12

  • Develop scaffolds, supports, and strategies to help English Learners complete their own audio projects

  • Create a content-specific audio project for English Learners that enhances the four skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing

  • Special Technology Instructions: Participants will need access to an internet device and a non-school, personal Google account. SimpleK12ís Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop. Teachers will also have the option to choose from a menu of tools, including Vocaroo, MakeBeliefsComix, Genially, Canva, and Google Suite.

    Assessment: Participants will create a content-specific comics project to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.
