Online Textbooks for Grade 9 English




Nelson Literacy has launched 4 new interactive Grade 9 textbooks through ITunes. I have downloaded these and Elizabeth is going to use them next year. They are very interactive with online quizzes, fill in the blank questions that you can mail to a teacher (or yourself!), videos, interactive assignments and lots of variety in both fiction and non fiction writings. One thing that is so wonderful about these ibooks is that they are Canadian!! What a blessing for those of us who search for Canadian materials!! 
The titles are: 



These are available only on Ipads but they are well worth looking at if you get a chance. One of the great features is that these books include audio for each of the stories, articles, poems etc. This opens these books for use by a wide variety of students.
Let me know what you think!
Blessings,
