This series of 30, newly-updated language arts mini lessons (MicroLessons) features animated, talking avatars who present English skills and topics to your classes of middle school students, grades 5-9.
Just connect your computer to a digital projector or SMART Board, select a student to operate the mouse and let the avatars do the teaching for you.
Then, it's your call--relax, grade papers, or partner-up with them!
