Something Old/Something New - Hanawald & M. Jones

Using African Folktales and Audacity to Improve Reading Fluency
Sarah Hanawald, Marilyn Jones Link to handout and presentation

Good detail on implementation in classroom. Instructions for students on how to use Audacity.
Link to freeplaymusic is awesome. Had a participant (shown in photo) record in Audacity to show how easy it is.

» start with read alouds
» student selects and read 3-5 to themselves
» student selects a story for their presentation
» read it aloud several times, including reading to a partner or small group
» give feedback to partner about inflection, pronunciation, cadence
took 6-10 class periods
need twice as many (or more) texts as students
audacity tutorials http://audacity/
instructions for students to use audacity in the PowerPoint
need lame encoder to convert audacity files to MP3
