Overview

Do what you already do, but better-with the help of technology and this book. Practical, accessible, and most of all doable, it shows you how to integrate the latest technological innovations into your English classroom, even if they're all new to you.

Quickly learn how to use computers, including websites, presentation packages, and really-not-so-scary concept mapping software. Take a fresh look at familiar technologies, too, such as audio, video, television, and movies. Discover how all of these technologies become valuable tools for reinforcing the study of literature, interpreting and evaluating text, conducting research, and pursuing various other literate purposes. Best of all, incorporate easy-to-follow examples of projects into your lessons so you can implement new ideas immediately, while they're still fresh in mind.

Take advantage of numerous other features as well: rubrics for assessing student learning, margin links to online resources, and end-of-chapter interviews with teachers who use technology to enhance English instruction. Then go to the companion website www.teneasyways.com to download project templates, access diverse resources, and communicate directly with other teachers about what they do in their classrooms.

Read Ten Easy Ways to Use Technology in the English Classroom and change your teaching life in meaningful ways-creating even more opportunities for you and your students to learn and grow. It's easy!

    Terrific little book!

    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.
