LITERACY: DEFINING TERMS
In English Class, the book, The Crucible was filled with symbolism. Therefore understanding many terms, like Communism and Theocracy helps students build a foundation and background knowledge before they even begin reading the book.
This 8th grade student used Educreations, an interactive whiteboard app to describe his understanding of the two terms.

(Educreations movies upload and are hosted directly to that website- Students are also able to create Educreations movies on the website itself, rather than the iPad. To share his work, he emailed the link to his movie to Mr. Hellerstein)
