You’re probably already familiar with eBooks, and how useful they can be. I mean, how else can you fit the entire Adventures of Tintin in your carry-on as you jet set off to France? Or, more than likely, bide your time between parents at the next PTA meeting. But did you know that eBooks are a great teaching tool, too?
As you already know, English (ELA) is a broad subject that encompasses a variety of topics including grammar, literature, reading, writing, vocabulary and more. Due to the nature of the discipline, there are thousands of great eBooks—but, which are the best?
That’s a great question!
You could take the time to carefully research and analyze each one, but I’ve already picked out 10 of the most useful titles for middle school and high school English (ELA).
Ten popular book-to-movie adaptations are reviewed for English Literature teachers - Animal Farm, Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, The Outsiders, Pride & Prejudice, Romeo & Juliet, War of the Worlds, To Kill a Mockingbird...

I did it by polling several of LinkedIn’s most prominent ELA groups over the course of a few months. As always, I hope you find something that’s new (and useful) to you!
