AuTHor Thursday: You are the Author

This week, you are the author. Will you choose to write a non-fiction memoir or a fictionalized short story? Turn to page 2 in your notebooks for non-fiction or page 4 in your notebooks for fiction.

Remember those books that allowed you as the reader to chart your own course through the tangles of plot? 

Now there are easy ways to write those yourself using the marvels of today's technology. Richard Byrne, blogger at Free Technology for Teachers, reviewed three different technological platforms for writing those choice-laden tales. 

Check out the different platforms here, and explore his blog for more ideas as to how to incorporate (free) technology into the classroom.
