After 18 years of teaching, I dramatically changed my curriculum last year.

English class used to be what you probably remember from your high school days. We all read the same book, talked about it, did some writing and extension activities, and took a test. This pattern was repeated all year. Needless to say, not all students are excited or motivated or engaged to read the same book.

Now, all my students read what they choose and engage individually and in small groups with me and other students.

A document camera would allow me to share beautiful words and great writing that my students are reading. It would also allow me to share their writing immediately with the rest of the class.
