As an eMINTS coach, I work with instructional specialists and teachers around Missouri who are looking for reading strategies for elementary, ESL, and special needs students. I have found multiple valuable resources online that you can use with your struggling readers.
- Randall’s ESL Listening Lab (http://www.esl-lab.com/) – this cyber listening lab is great for ESL students, but any struggling reader can learn with this lab.
- Books Online-Reads to Students (http://fc.glen.cc/~Karen_Ensor/BooksOnline.htm) Good resources for beginning readers or ESL students.
- Clicker 4 (http://atto.buffalo.edu/registered/Tutorials/talkingBooks/index.php) This site offers a tutorial on how to use Clicker to create your own talking books. You can purchase Clicker 4 at http://my-ecoach.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=45&products_id=258
