North Hills teachers write a textbook for online curriculum | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it

"In eighth-grade social studies classes at North Hills Junior High School, there's no sleeping through videos, no hiding in the back of class to avoid being called upon and no student excuses about forgetting the textbook, notes or class materials.
That's because just about everything students use for class is online, including the textbook, which was written this past summer by social studies teachers Rich Texter, Joe Welch and Larry Dorenkamp. It was edited by reading teacher Jill Brooks, who made sure it was written at the appropriate reading level."

The Best Way to Use iBooks Author in Education | edcetera - Rafter Blog | mrpbps iDevices | Scoop.it
