Creating My Own Book Trailer

Creating My Own Book Trailer | School Libraries Leading Information Literacy | Scoop.it

I believe strongly in Study-Driven/Inquiry-Based writing instruction. I live by Katie Ray's quote from her book STUDY DRIVEN, which is one of the books that has most influenced my life as a writing teacher."
