How to dictate a book in Book Creator - Book Creator app | Blog

How to dictate a book in Book Creator - Book Creator app | Blog | School Library | Scoop.it
When working with young students, typing can be quite a difficult thing for them to do.

In Book Creator, you can easily make a voice recording of the child telling the story but often having the written text there can make that story even more powerful.

Just recently, I was training some assistant teachers on how to use Book Creator. I run a lot of workshops, and Book Creator is one of my most used apps on my iPad.

I love it when I learn something new. So I just had to share this with you.

Close Reading: Answer Frames | School Library | Scoop.it

Answer Frames

How do I do it?
When asking and answering questions about literature, language learners may need support to cite the specific evidence that supports conclusions or inferences.  After reading a text the laminated frames can be used as a whole class model and a volunteer can fill in the blanks with dry erase marker or individual students can use the frames when working in a small group or in pairs.  They are a good tool to scaffold speaking and writing in literature discussions.  The larger text size can make it easier for language learners to utilize the tool.
