Students watch a short film with no sound and speculate about the story it tells, read a poem and discuss digital technology, social media and isolation. I would ask all teachers who use Film English to consider buying my book Film in Action as the royalties which I receive from sales help to keep the website completely free. Library Patch: If the Book Fits .... Read It Each and every year, I present a lesson on "Just Right Books." Each and every year, I feel that it falls just a little bit flat. I continue to see kids choose those GIANT books that I just KNOW are not a good fit.

StoryBuilder can teach students about the basic steps for good storytelling as well as how to reply to questions in narrative form. Since the app doesn't provide feedback, practice may be most effective one-on-one with teachers tracking progress, at least until a student gets the gist of the exercise. You may want to share stories on StoryBuilder via email with a student's speech therapist and parents to demonstrate specific issues or evaluate and note progress. Read MoreRead Less
