School Name: Florida Reads On
One of the nice features of this site is that students have unlimited access. Also, many of the titles have audio versions. Sign in and look through the offerings. There are nice Eyewitness Books, current nonfiction topic titles (such as cyberbullying), books in Spanish, a nice collection of classics (some as graphic novels) and young adult fiction.
#1- The One-Pager- This is a strategy for responding to a text that helps students demonstrate their unique understanding of a text and/or a lesson. This two minute video introduces and explains the process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmVgdgdygGM&feature=youtu.be
One pagers are great for all content areas. Here are a few examples of completed one-pagers.

As we move to one-2-one computing for our students, it is time to think about great tools we can use to engage students and quickly assess knowledge. Kahoot is one to consider. It allows students to use their devices to click in answers and it computes the data for you, the teacher.
