I have twelve years experience as a high school English Language Arts teacher.
While I do still lecture some with Prezi in literature, I tend to cater my instruction with more of a DI flair. I often do group work, projects, peer tutoring, and technology-based activities. When teaching grammar lessons, I do some lecture, but incorporate the "I, We, You" strategy of application.
