At Parkdale Elementary School, Mrs. Christie Edholm is using e-readers and e-books to support and encourage her reading students.
Throughout the school year, her third grade students are using e-readers (Kindles) to read books, and are using the interactive features to deepen their understanding of their reading (such as the built-in dictionary and text-to-speech features).
By using the e-readers with her students, Mrs. Edholm hopes to address the discrepancy between the types of literacy experiences students encounter at school and those they practice in their daily lives outside the school environment.
Funding for this project was provided by the East Aurora Educational Foundation.
