How to create your own audiobooks

How to create your own audiobooks | English Language Learners in the Classroom | Scoop.it

Via John Evans
Claudia M. Reder's insight:

What a great idea for ELLs.  Buddies can create audiobooks for those who want to hear and read the stories they themselves have written.

 

Another way to share our stories.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, May 4, 2013 1:54 PM

"Poetry By Heart is designed to put the emphasis on learning by heart, not on learning by rote.  It is about understanding and remembering the deep recurring truths about our experience as humans, in terms that are especially beautiful and resonant.  It is about doing this in a pleasure-filled way.  And it is part of the same benevolent revolution in poetry-proving and poetry-teaching that formed a part of the original intention in founding the Poetry Archive  during my ten years as Poet Laureate." ~Andrew Motion

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 4, 2013 2:51 PM

Poetry evokes both the creative and the radical. We can express what we feel in a deep and meaningful manner.
