Make a Visual Statement with QuotesCover.com

If you’re a regular visitor to my blog, you have probably noticed that I often share tools and resources that can help teachers spark student interest in writing.

The opportunity to develop the perfect activity to integrate pop culture with the skills students need to communicate in a highly complex world. Yep, I’m talking about the creation of a project that combines images, text, writing and even classroom discussions or debates. And the tool to get the job done? None other than QuotesCover.com.
