  • 10. Curriculum Alignment
    • The previous lesson was designed with the following curriculum standards in mind:
    •  
    • §110.31. English Language Arts and Reading, English I
    • (b)  Knowledge and skills.
    •      (5)  Reading/Comprehension of Literary Text/Fiction. Students understand, make inferences and draw conclusions about the structure and elements of fiction and provide evidence from text to support their understanding. Students are expected to:
    •             (A)  analyze non-linear plot development (e.g., flashbacks, foreshadowing, sub-plots, parallel plot structures) and compare it to linear plot development;
    •             (B)  analyze how authors develop complex yet believable characters in works of fiction through a range of literary devices, including character foils;
    •             (C)  analyze the way in which a work of fiction is shaped by the narrator's point of view;
    •              (D)  demonstrate familiarity with works by authors from non-English-speaking literary traditions with emphasis on classical literature.
    •  
    •      (24)  Listening and Speaking/Listening. Students will use comprehension skills to listen attentively to others in formal and informal settings. Students will continue to apply earlier standards with greater complexity. Students are expected to:
    •             (A)  listen responsively to a speaker by taking notes that summarize, synthesize, or highlight the speaker's ideas for critical reflection and by asking questions related to the content for clarification and elaboration
  • 11. What do others say about Playaway?
    • "Plug your students into something you can feel good about; engage their learning and open a world of reading to them in a whole new dimension." 
    •  
    • "...the Playaway may be the most convenient means available for getting audiobooks to your students." - Jeff Hastings, Highlander Way Middle School, Howell, MI.
