Listenwise is a fantastic way to use podcasts in your classroom and improve listening skills at the same time. I like that you can search by standard and topic (they have a ton of great books like A Wrinkle in Time, Beowulf, and Catch-22 as just a few listed this week. These podcasts aren’t a reading of the book, but relate the topics to the real world!  Check Them out!
