2. PowToon – Free Business Presentation
Software And Animated Video Maker
PowToon is a great online presentation tool that lets you create engaging videos and presentations that are completely animated.
One can use PowToon without any knowledge of animations, as it has a simple and intuitive interface. It is on its way to be Prezi’s main rival, ever since the recent release of the PowToon Slides software which lets you create full fledged, animated presentations (before this, you could only create videos on powtoon). For free users PowToon only lets you create public PowToons, which come with the PowToon watermark. It also only lets you share your PowToons to sites like Youtube and does not let you download your creations.

Sway allows you to import .pptx and .pdf files or create a sway presentation from scratch. It still has a long way to go before it can compete with the likes of Prezi and Emaze, but it is still good enough to create quick slideshows with a fresh feel.
To use Sway, all you need is a Microsoft account (outlook/hotmail/live). Here is a small video about Microsoft Sway.
5. Haiku Deck – Presentation Software That Inspire

Why Kids Like Them and Why Librarians Should Care by Michael R. Lavin
Graphic Novel Library
The most important reason that public and school librarians should consider adding graphic novels (GNs) to their collection is very simple: they are fun to read and kids like them! Booksellers and librarians across America have discovered that graphic novels of all types, including Japanese-style "manga," are tremendously popular with young readers. Today, more than ever before, librarians can choose from a wide selection of high-quality graphic novels, covering every imaginable topic and genre and suitable for a variety of age levels.
Despite the growing popularity and availability of graphic novels, Young Adult librarians may encounter problems convincing their coworkers and library directors that GNs are appropriate for libraries.
Why do graphic novels belong in your library's collection? The most commonly cited answer is that GNs attract kids and teens to the library. Furthermore, GNs tend to circulate heavily, making the cost per circulation very reasonable. Graphic novels are popular with kids not only because of their visual format, but because they deal with themes and topics that are meaningful to younger readers: alienation, prejudice, social injustice, coming of age, and personal responsibility, to name a few.
Experience proves that graphic novels motivate reluctant readers, encourage reading of all types, and stimulate literary exploration. Several studies indicate that teens who read comic books and graphic novels also engage in other types of pleasure reading to a degree much greater than kids who don't read GNs.
Reading specialists have long recognized that graphic novels can be very effective tools for use with poor readers, students with reading disabilities, and visual learners. GNs are particularly powerful in a parent/child read-aloud setting. They can also be used in adult literacy and English-as-a Second Language programs.
Today's kids have grown up in a highly visual environment, bombarded by television, video games, and computer graphics. This may be a significant reason why kids are so attracted to graphic novels, but it suggests an additional benefit: reading and understanding GNs requires a special type of visual literacy, which in turn offers a translatable skill in today's highly graphical world. Reading comics with a critical eye also helps kids develop an appreciation for art and different artistic styles.
In addition to these frequently mentioned advantages, I would add a less obvious one: graphic novels also appeal to highly motivated readers, creative kids, and gifted teens. Gifted readers are especially captivated by the believable details of well-crafted imaginary worlds portrayed in words and pictures. Many successful novelists, screenwriters, illustrators, actors, and directors have cited the important role that comic books and graphic novels played in their creative development.
Graphic novels stimulate the imagination, inspiring kids and teens to draw and write their own comics, write and share prose in the form of Internet fan-fiction, and engage in other creative pursuits such as movie-making, costume and game design, and role-playing.
Graphic novels can also be used in the classroom for a myriad of educational purposes. They are great focal points for library programming, book clubs and related activities, and they can stimulate discussion on themes and topics important to teens.
EXAMPLE OF COMPLETED STUDENT BOOK REPORT
(5 pages of text, 5 Pages of illustrations and 1 to 2 pages of character profiles where real-life TV or movie stars are assigned
to each of the characters that appear in your 5 page scene.)
You can use the following website "Storyboardthat.com" to help you create your illustrations.
I. Read a Graphic Novel and select
II. Create a storyboard based on the scene you selected. Feel free to make changes to the scene and illustrate it the way that you would like to see it.
Your storyboard must be drawn!
DO NOT just photocopy the scene that you select from the graphic novel. Obviously
I'm not expecting the art work in your storyboard to look as good as the illustrations from the graphic novel.
Here's another example of a storyboard (pictured below) for the same scene that appears in the V for Vendetta Graphic Novel (See left hand column) Notice that there are a few changes to the scene that have been made. Feel free to alter the original scene that appears in the comic to your own liking.
More Sample Storyboards
Again, I don't expect the art work in your story board to look as good as the illustrations from the graphic novel. You can draw stick figures as long as you are able to communicate your vision of how your favorite scene from the graphic novel plays out. (See storyboard below for example)
Either shade your drawings with pencil or color them.

Poetic Devices in Lyrics
Poetic devices can help lyrics go from mundane to first rate if used properly. Most beginning
lyricists either don't take advantage of poetic devices (or know about them) or use them to excess.
Metaphors are comparisons between two objects that give a clearer meaning. For instance, saying "She is the rain" is a metaphor comparing a woman to rain. If a metaphor uses "like" or "as" for the comparison, that is called a Simile. Saying "She is like the rain" is a simile. Notice the difference between the two phrases and the emotion they evoke for you and then note how you can use this in your own lyric writing adventures.
Metaphors can create powerful and lasting images ingrained in our brains for years. This is why the use of metaphors is so popular not only among songwriters, but writers in general. Alliteration is the repetition of sounds in a line of the lyrics. Assonance and Consonance are subsections of alliteration and are the repetition of vowel sounds and consonant sounds respectively. (Consonance: repetition of a sequence of two or more consonants, but with a change in the intervening vowel, hearer to horror) (Assonance: repetition of identical or similar vowels Allusion: passing reference, without explicit identification, to a literary person, place, or event.)
Imagery is used in lyrics writing to appeal to any or all of one's senses. Typically writers use visual imagery in their music lyrics, but this isn't always the case as auditory imagery is also frequently used followed by words and phrases that appeal to the other senses as well. Be creative and see what works best in the context of your own song.
Personification is basically animating some inanimate object or objects. Some songwriters personify animals to great effect as in "Rocky Raccoon" or in the song "Joy to the World" where "Jeremiah was a bullfrog."
Point-of-view is also used by lyricists to great effect. Lyrics may be written in first, second or third person point-of-view, each giving a different perspective to the lyrics. Sometimes also the point-of-view will also change during a song, especially in a duet, but at times with solo performances as well.
Hyperbole is the exaggeration of something for dramatic effect. This exaggeration or overstatement is a figure of speech that lends itself well to songwriting. "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse" is an example of hyperbole. "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse with no name" is just plain wrong, however.
Repetition is what it is and what it says it is and is self-explanatory, in itself it is. By repeating line or words over and again, such as in the chorus, the song become more memorable and adds to the "catchiness" of the song.
Symbols are used sometimes in lyric writing as a brief way to evoke a larger emotional response. The Statue of Liberty is a great symbol of freedom in the U. S. and mentioning the statue in the song lyrics may evoke larger feelings of patriotism, yearning for freedom, liberty, justice and many other feelings. Symbols of love, heroism and death are many times used in lyric writing to evoke certain emotional responses.
These are but some of the poetic devices used in lyric writing that should be in every songwriter's tool chest. It is important to know how to use these tools and just as important to know when to and when not to use them as well. By using these poetic devices well your lyrics will jump to life and engage the listener in a meaningful musical experience.

Sonnet- A lyrics poem of fourteen lines whose rhyme scheme is fixed. The rhyme scheme in the Italian form as typified in the sonnets of Petrarch is abbaabba cdecde.
Stanza- A major subdivision in a poem. A stanza of two lines is called a couplet, a stanza of three lines is called a tercet, a stanza of four lines is called a quatrain.
Style- Many things enter into the style of a work: the author’s use of figurative language, diction, sound, effects, and other literary devices.
Tone- Tone expresses the author’s attitude toward his or her subject. Since there are as many tones in literature as there are tones of voice in relationships, the tone of a literary work may be one of anger or approval, pride or piety-the entire gamut of attitudes toward life’s phenomena.
