Abstract

To promote language development and literacy for my special needs students, I will audio record books so my students can listen to stories before they are used for whole group or small group instruction. The audio books will pre-teach vocabulary, model fluent and expressive reading, and guide comprehension. It is my hypothesis and my hope that by giving students the opportunity to interact with stories individually prior to interacting with them in a group setting; it will increase comprehension, vocabulary, language development, participation in group lessons, self-confidence and overall literacy development.
