Hi everyone, I'm elmentary librarian of 10 years, new to this group, and trying to earn my ISTE Capstone certification. My project is to have my 5th grade students research a picture book author, record information on a graphic organizer, prepare book talks, and combine this information into either a PowerPoint or PhotoStory presentation to inspire our K-3 students to read these books. We will use www.voicethread.com to record the audio. My questions for you: What electronic graphic organizers would you recommend for elementary students? What specific electronic resources have you found to be very useful for author study by elementary students? I have found some, but am interested to see if you can share others I haven't discovered yet. Maybe you can share other great author exploration activities you've done with your students. Thanks, Terri
