“Since implementing Listenwise, we have seen an improvement in students’ proficiency across all domain areas and a deepened interest in learning. As a result of this success, we have expanded our partnership to support more students in our ELL program across more grade levels and proficiency levels.”
– ELL Curriculum Specialist, School District of Philadelphia, PA
Listenwise scaffolds help multilingual students access challenging, meaningful content while building their English language skills. We don’t make things “easier” for students by oversimplifying— we focus on delivering comprehensible input that is easy for teachers to scaffold for students at specific proficiency levels.
We are a product focused on teaching content and language together. Students can use Listenwise to learn about high-interest, curriculum-aligned topics, while also building academic vocabulary and English language skills across interpretive and expressive modes of communication, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Our platform makes it easy for teachers to work together, plan, and deliver grade-level standards-based instruction.
Listenwise’s multimodal lessons are aligned with WIDA’s Key Language Uses: narrate, argue, inform, explain. Our product supports the explicit teaching of how language works in order to develop students’ language toolbox.
“I recommend Listenwise for culturally and linguistically diverse learners. My students love to talk and they understand so much. Reading and writing will still take some time. Listenwise allows me to teach to their strengths.”
– Elementary teacher, Hoboken Public Schools, NJ
