Prezi Presentation Using Linking Verbs
We have been practicing using linking verbs, distinguishing between linking and action verbs, and justifying why one is better to use to enhance writing than the other one is.
Prezi.com is a nonlinear presentation that allows so many options that a PowerPoint can't. It is a great way to display information, and at the same time, provide visual representations by uploading pictures, drawing arrows or lines, highlighting, etc. It is a great way for a visual learner to analyze a sentence for parts of speech. The frames on Prezi can help to organize and keep ideas separate, and a path can be created for the order in which the information can be presented.
I am looking forward to an opportunity for the students to be able to have their own account because it will benefit all of the different learning styles.
