Lit Trips

I plan to use this project again with book clubs where each group will be working on a different place based novel.

This is a great project that I originally saw done by Tara Oswald at Fossil Ridge High School in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Children's Books

We have completed a fun project with my 10th grade EAL class. We read children's books to the kindergarten class on the other side of the fort. First, however, my students recorded themselves reading the books as a screencast with the pages visible. This worked great because students could hear their own voices and listen to see where there were words they didn't pronounce correctly or understand.

My students then wrote a reflective piece on the experience and included that along with the videos on a webpage.
