Kindles in the Classroom

Question: Why bring Amazon’s Kindles into the classroom for struggling readers?

Answer/Quote: “I brought a Kindle into school one day, and shortly had a group of boys surrounding me, wanting to take a look. I am now purchasing six Kindles for the classroom. I think it will be really good for struggling readers in particular—you can change the size of the text, you have a built in dictionary, and you can offer them lower leveled books with no stigma—nobody sees the cover.” P. 3. Angie C. Miller, Middle School Language Arts Teacher at Holderness Central School in Holderness, New Hampshire.
