Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day…

…For Teaching ELL, ESL, & EFL

Listen & Read

| 1 Comment

Scholastic has been publishing excellent “Listen and Read” nonfiction stories (with audio support for the text) for several years on their website. They’re accessible to Beginning English Language Learners. It’s not easy to find expository text that’s accessible to Beginning ELL’s.

The problem has been that each story hasn’t had a permanent url address — they’ve kept changing it as they’ve published the stories in their monthly online newsletters. It’s been pretty frustrating.

However, now they’ve compiled permanent links to all of them on one page. Explore all fifty of them now at Listen and Read.

I’ve put direct links to many of them under various sections of my website.

  1. Dear Larry,

    I stumbled upon your blog, and am so happy to have done so. I just checked out the Scholastic audio non-fiction for beginning ESL readers and am thrilled with it. I’m tutoring an 8 year old boy with Chinese and Khmer in his family and need more resources for reading. The listening aspect of these short stories is perfect for him!

    Thanks for your wonderful outreach to educators!
