Litweaver has launched. In briefest terms, think of it as Netflix for your classroom. In longer and better terms, imagine that the man who created the contemporary YA anthology, Don Gallo, helped assemble short stories, poem, essays, and plays from 50 well known authors. Imagine that you could share those stories with your students, make notes, pass out assignments, and access supplemental material. That, in a nutshell, is Litweaver. Please check it out. And please share the link with your colleagues. It is very cool, and very new. http://www.litweaver.com/
