Debbie shared how it ‘unlocked’ one particularly quiet student. Full guide on the TWM site: http://ift.tt/1Xwpnr9 ‘In Her Shoes’ was Debbie’s example of a popular film (starring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine) that can be used to get students excited about poetry and language arts.
