Listenwise offers podcast style short stories for grades 2-12

Listenwise features thousands of 3-6 minute curriculum-aligned podcast style stories for students in grades 2-12. The site offers interactive transcripts of stories, so students can read and listen simultaneously. There is also a quiz feature, which embeds a quiz that is automatically scored into the lesson. Teachers can assign customized material at students’ lexile levels, making differentiation easy. There are even ELL scaffolding supports built-in, allowing for tiered vocabulary, text read aloud, word lookup, graphic organizers, and a slower audio version of the story. In response to school closures, Listenwise is offering free 90-day access to their premium account for impacted schools.
