Parents, please note that as with any platform, we cannot review or endorse every piece of material available. Please use discretion regarding which lessons are appropriate for you family and your worldview. 

How It Works: 

As a parent, you can choose specific lessons for your student and create a class for them to work through. Or, you or your student can simply browse the collection by subject. Audio lessons are divided into three categories: 

  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • English Language Arts

Each Lesson

Let’s explore the lesson on “War of the Worlds” to look at the lesson elements. 

  • Audio – the audio lessons range in length but are generally just a few minutes long. They serve as a springboard to launch into further study and as a way to whet your student’s appetite for more information. 
  • Story Transcript – this is a word-for-word transcription of the audio. This can be a great tool for students to read along with the story, increasing reading skills and helping with listening comprehension. 
  • Assignment Resources – this is the heart of the lesson. First, you’ll find listening comprehension questions students can write answers to in a notebook. For the “War of the Worlds,” there are five questions directly related to the audio students have just listened to. Next are discussion themes, which can be used as essay assignments. These challenge students to think about what they’ve learned and share their own thoughts and opinions. There are also key vocabulary words that students can copy into a notebook. 
  • Teacher’s Guide – this provides additional tips that you can use if you choose. 
  • Quiz – if you want to use the quiz, you’ll need to set the lesson up as an assignment first by choosing the “Create Assignment” option. 

Additional Features

As mentioned above, parents can create entire classes and assignments for their students if they choose, but these lessons stand alone quite well by using just the options highlighted above. 

You can also send kids on a Media Literacy Scavenger Hunt, check out Weird News stories, or check out audio stories on Current Events
