Booktrack Classroom

Booktrack Classroom is a new site/app that is great for the Reading or Writing Classroom.  This is an interesting tool that allows students or teachers to add a soundtrack to their writing.

Here's a list of ways Booktrack Classroom is being used in education...

  • Narrative Writing – Students add music and audio to their original stories.
  • Informative and Explanatory Writing – Students compose essays and articles selecting suitable audio to accompany their text.
  • Literature Study – Students gain insight and increased understanding of the text by creating their own soundtracks for novels, stories, and plays they are reading in class.
  • Read-Alouds – Teacher and student led read-alouds are enhanced through the addition of sound and music to the chapter or act being presented.
Also, BC has a nice selection of free lesson plans to search through and is aligned to Common Core standards.

Below is a brief demo...
