5.4 Texts

Print text required

I recognize that all students won't have iPads, and I recognize that some students will want to use their iPads all the time.

My solution is to require the whole class to read

  • one print book (Huckleberry Finn)
  • several short stories and poems as etexts (available on the iPad, most smartphones, or any computer)
All the rest of the texts will be available either in print or electronic form. (I haven't asked the bookstore to stock these books, but you can easily find any inexpensive used edition online, you can probably get most of them from your local library, and you may just want to print them out from the web.)

If you have an iPad, see this slideshow for screenshots showing how to find and download the correct iBooks titles.
