Excellent. It provided me with valuable information about the apps and how they enhance reading comprehension and engagement.
 
Great list of apps that I have never heard of before! The Shakespeare app could be invaluable for anyone who teaches Shakespeare as part of their curriculum.

Great presentation. Think I will pass the information up to middle and high school colleagues. I can use your sharing to build a better bridge reading with elementary schoolers. Thank you!
