Jumpstart Lesson Plan 

Adult Guidance Needed - High

We think this activity will help students get off on the right foot with using Learning Ally Audiobooks Solution! In this activity, students will complete a scavenger hunt within the app, learning about features and adding good books to their bookshelves along the way. The lesson plan can be used in any setting - virtual, hybrid or in-person, and can be done independently, or as a group, depending on your students.

Getting Started Checklist

Adult Guidance Needed - High

This student-facing checklist (with an accompanying educator guide) supports struggling readers by providing a guided approach for trying and persisting with Learning Ally audiobooks. The checklist is a step-by-step for how to find a book you like and how to create a good environment for reading. This checklist can be used with any student, but is specifically recommended as a follow-up if a student isn't drawn in by the Jumpstart Lesson Plan.
