This short but detailed book clearly outlines ways to integrate technology into English classes. I like that it starts with easy projects, like audio theater. The book also addresses media literacy... like TV and movies.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
