"Among the many benefits, audiobooks:

reinforce literacy skills.supplement reading instruction to develop a positive attitude towards literature.develop understanding of content area material when decoding or other literacy skills are delayed.model the appropriate use of oral vocabulary, fluent reading, and use of phonics.bring literature from the classroom to home and back on a portable device."

And a great infographic to go with it!

The Elements Of A Literacy-Rich Classroom Environment

The Elements Of A Literacy-Rich Classroom Environment | SoHo  Library | Scoop.it

"Literacy-rich environments, as endorsed by the International Reading Association, have a significant impact on what goes on in the classroom and set the stage for interactions with a wide variety of genres...

 Perhaps we should begin by focusing attention on the classroom environment and making certain that it is a place that supports and encourages literacy learning. A literacy-rich environment not only supports the standards set by the Common Core, but also provides a setting that encourages and supports speaking, listening, reading, and writing in a variety of authentic ways – through print & digital media."

21st century skills as life long learning skills! Literacy isn't anymore just being able to read, write and, count. Deeper learning and higher order thinking skills are what needs to paid attention to. Proper information literacy skills are vital!

Being literate in today's society requires a different set of skills - a combination that builds on traditional literacy skills.
