The problem I was experiencing in my school was finding current events materials that were differentiated, for mainly my EL students who needed more support with the reading materials, but would be able to participate in full class discussions.

Product Use: We used Listenwise to research current events that students would share during whole class discussions, as well as used the articles to support their writing.

What Worked and What Didn't: Things that worked well were that the listening to the article, being able to slow down the rate of the speaker, and being able to adjust an individuals' reading selection. Many students used terminology from the articles appropriately and it helped their verbal and written academic language flourish over the course of the year.

Age Group: High school students, Middle school students, and Elementary school students
