In the Classroom

English and Language Arts teachers you will find lots here to keep your students engaged. Though this site is geared towards boys ages 11 - 14, girls will find these lessons fun too. Use an interactive whiteboard or projector to share the presentations. There are various graphic organizers that go with the lessons. Use them on an interactive whiteboard and fill them out with the whole class. Print the completed organizers for students to use for reference. Teachers in any subject can have their students use the graphic novel creator to create short stories. Students can choose their own characters, write text and add captions. Depending on the level of your students, have them create a one page, two page or an entire book. Print the books and add them to the class library. Or have students create an online book using a tool such as Bookemon, reviewed here.
