Here’s one more tool for the school chest

My Broadcast Journalism students found

this site to be quite rewarding.  

It’s an online teleprompter that allows users to read scripts in fullscreen view, just like the pros. If you’ve never used a teleprompter as a classroom tool, you should. 

You and your students will love it!

It’s a hands-on activity that engages students at every level of development.

And as a  former journalist, turned educator, I would encourage teachers to use this tool to enhance their students’ reading and public speaking skills. 

Is it an endorsement? Yes. But it’s also free, and easy.

Not to mention, what’s better than a grassroots lesson, on how real anchors, on the news, learn how to read scripts.
