Overcoming Obstacles Awareness - Publicity, promotions, giveaways, student presentations Teacher Prejudice - Research-based information, student testimonial, more research Teacher Fear - Start with one teacher and be accountable with documentation
How we use Audio Books Teachers assign or students volunteer. Tutor reads and listens along with student. CD is stopped every 20 minutes for reflection, discussion, questions and answers. Learning Logs. Teacher generated worksheets. Tutor and student continue to read and listen together. With multiple jacks, one tutor can listen along with up to three students at a time.
