This amazing project is a great way to help you improve student writing, meet Common Core writing standards, and integrate technology. Research shows that English language learners have more success when many visuals are included. The effect is even more powerful when students create those visuals themselves. You'll find that this lesson will be extremely successful with all your students- not just your ELLs!
This project guides students to review a book in writing, then create a video of their review. The video reviews can then be attached to books in the classroom library thorough Aurasma or the use of QR codes.
