Listen To A Short Podcast On “Using Visuals to Teach Text” By….Me


I’ve recorded a five-and-a-half minute podcast on “Using Visuals to Teach Text” for Linworth Publishers, who have published my first two books, English Language Learners:Teaching Strategies That Work and Building Parent Engagement In Schools.

Here’s the podcast transcript.

I’m not entirely convinced that many people listen to podcasts, but I’d be interested in hearing if I’m wrong and people find this one helpful. If people do, I may try to do one or so each month. Also, let me know if you think posting a transcript of the podcast would be helpful. If readers think it would be, I’ll ask Linworth for permission to post it.

On the same page where you find the podcast, you’ll also find a link to a short article I wrote for the Library Media Connection titled Freire’s Learning Sequence. Or you can just go directly to it here.

  1. First of all, as a regular follower of your blog it was a pleasure to have a chance to hear you speak!
    The podcast was very interesting but I personally do not find the format comfortable. You suggested an interesting strategy and I would much prefer to have it in writing where I could refer to it when needed. Its not comfortable to find a certain spot on a podcast (I ususally need to refer to a specific aspect of an idea).
    In addition I would to point out that pictures are a very useful tool for reading comprehension with older learners, in high-school, too.
