    One of the classes I am observing is an eighth grade co-teach, which consists
    of 13 Ex-Ed and 17 mainstream students. The short stories on tape seem to be
    quite effective in this class, as students are able to follow along with the
    tape while reading the text. The slower students do not feel "put on the
    spot" to read, and the other students enjoy being read to. As long as they
    aren't overused, I believe books on tape are a positive enhancement to the

    The epistemology of Naturalism (which is only one philosophy of education,
    Jean-Jacque Rousseau) is awakening all of our senses to discover new
    knowledge and exposing students to their environment. Some of us are visual
    learners, auditory learners and kinesthetic learners, etc. I believe it is
    important to engage all of the senses in a language arts environment, simply
    because...we can!

    We must also keep in mind that not all students will be as passionate about
    literature as we are, and are only reading because they know they hafta. If
    by enlivening the senses, we can tap into how the disinterested student
    absorbs information, then perhaps we can engage them in the reading process.

    Good question
