Terrie's Tips: Structured Literacy and Audiobooks

Categories: Assistive Technology

Terrie Noland

Terrie Noland, C.A.L.P, VP of Educator Leadership and Learning, introduces Terrie's Tips, a monthly blog to help reading specialist and tutors support students with a reading deficit. This tip provides insight into how audiobooks fit into the schematic of a structured literacy program.

I get asked this question so often, "Tell me the number, tell me the percentage of time that should be spent on structured literacy and the percentage of time on audiobooks?" What reading specialists, tutors, and educators need to think about is the goal they are trying to accomplish? 

In this video, Terrie shares her tips on finding the right balance between structured literacy and audiobooks.
