Listen Edition is excited to announce a new partnership with StudySync, a platform with an extensive variety of ready-made and customizable reading and writing assignments. Listen Edition is bringing public radio to StudySync’s popular Blasts. StudySync Blasts pose questions about current news stories and events for students to respond to in a Twitter-like fashion. That means keep it short – 140 characters or less, then rate your peers’ answers.
Listen Edition CEO and founder Monica Brady-Myerov, an award-winning public radio journalist, adds her voice to the Blast by writing and providing audio introduction to these public radio stories. “I’m truly thrilled that the Listen Edition StudySync Blasts encourage students to talk about public radio stories and provide opportunities to build critical thinking and listening skills,” says Brady-Myerov.
Listen Edition is pulling stories from our extensive archive of current events, which are free teachable stories available every day online at Listenedition.com. By enhancing the content with a voice-over, additional links and a compelling question for students to respond to, the Blasts make the public radio story a more engaging classroom tool.
StudySync is designed to increase reading and writing for grades 2-12. StudySync engages students in reading and writing through an extensive digital library of hundreds of texts, TV-quality video lessons, audio, and a proprietary online writing tool. It’s researched based and aligned to the Common Core. Sign up today for a free trial of StudySync and start using its Blasts today!
