    2. Thank you! I have two very low functioning classes and trying to get them to read parts was hard. This version is my favorite audio. It really helps them to understand.

  3. Links are NOT working to hear audio.
    "Owner prevented downloads for this audio file." This is the message I received.

  8. I too have lower level readers that are hesitant to read aloud. However, the links won’t work. Any advice to access?

  9. Bummer! the audio is gone. It used to work. Any idea what's going on? Thanks

  10. The audio is playable through a Soundcloud embed. Unless you're up against a firewall, you should be able to simply click on the act you wish to play. You might also go directly to the Soundcloud page - https://soundcloud.com/tom-fasano/sets/the-crucible

  13. Hi Tom, thank you for The Crucible audio recording. I've been using it for teaching the play in the last couple of weeks and all of a sudden, the playlist isn't available on Soundcloud. Is there any way to restore it? Thanks again!

  14. Hi Tom, I see that it's back on. Thank you!

  15. Nevermind, found it in the soundcloud. Thank you for sharing this!

  16. Act 2 Scene One (the brief confrontation between John and Abigail) is missing. Do you by any chance have the audio file for that one?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Is it Act Two? I don't believe Abigail is actually onstage during Act Two.

      Delete
  17. She's not. I think she's thinking of the confrontation added to the movie version. : )

  18. Thank you for taking the time to share this with the masses. This is my favorite version, and giving access to these recordings has immensely helped my students.

  19. Me again :) Whatever you did since my previous message fixed the issue! THANK YOU! I teach ESOL students & "average" American Literature classes and have used your audio recordings for the past few semesters because your files are easier to navigate than my cassette tapes (of the same version). So once again--THANK YOU!!!

    1. I'm now using an HTML5 code to stream the audio. It may not work on all browsers, but I'm glad it's now working on yours. Let me know if you encounter any additional issues with it. . . . Tom

  20. My students ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS VERSION. I was so sad because last semester I used your version on soundcloud and was so bummed when I saw it was no longer listed. I so glad I found it here. I have football players who beg to keep reading because of this audio book. Thank you!

  22. For some reason, I cannot get the audio to work. I have tried in Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Firefox (blog doesn't exist there). But nothing will work. Suggestions?

  23. I'm using HTML5 code to play the audio, which plays fine on the five different browsers I have on my iMac. I don't understand why you're having problems.

  24. Thank you so much! It is working for me. I have a class that could not read this aloud with expression, but I really wanted them to follow the script rather than watch the movie. I bought an audio book on audible with Richard Dreyfuss, but I don't like it as much as this one. Thank you!

  25. I've been using this audio for three years now. Thanks for providing the ease for sharing with my students.
