App of the Month: Trading Cards

Turn learning into the latest trend. Students can create a trading card for an event, person, literary character, an object, a place, etc. Student can design their cards and then trade them with other students in the class, turning each card into a study tool.
Rewordify is a free website that allows you to copy and paste the contents of a document, website, news story, literary work, etc. and adjust the difficulty of the reading level, making the text easier to understand. Students can view the original text next to the modified version, so that they can see how the text has changed. Find Shakespeare a challenge? Not to fear. Rewordify is here! Click on the title above to go directly to the website.
