OpenStax The Canterville Ghost :: Part1 Questions on the text highlight verbs in Passive Voice When the American, Mr Otis, bought Canterville Castle, everyone told him that this was very foolish, as the place was haunted. But Mr Otis answered, “I come from a modern country, where we have everything that money can buy. And if there were such a thing as a ghost in Europe, we would have it at home in one of our museums.” A few weeks later, on a lovely July evening, Mr Otis, his wife and their children, Washington, Virginia and the twins, went down to their new home.

The Children’s Books online: The Rosetta Project is an online library that offers a wide variety of eBooks; most of them are translated to other languages. Teachers can find eBooks for pre-readers, early, intermediate, and advance readers. You can also find literature for adults. There is also a section of audio books. Most of the eBooks are free to read and use; however, there is a section where you can buy eBooks which can be downloaded to personal computers. This site does not deliver hard copies of the eBooks.
Teaching tips:
1. Students from one classroom can read the same eBook simultaneously; the teacher can ask questions about his particular books as a warm up activity to start the English Arts class every day.
2. The English teacher can project a particular eBook, so her students can read aloud, the rest of the class can read along, this can be particularly useful in one-computer classrooms.
3. For struggling readers, the teacher can use the collection of audio books to allow these students to listen to while they are reading. by gabrielapearltrees Oct 25
