Pobre Ana Prezi

I love Prezi in theory, but I am too much of a perfectionist to use it on a regular basis. However, I had a free day and dedicated it to making a Prezi for the 6th grade novel Pobre Ana. The concept of reading a novel (even if it is a mere 39 pages) intimidates many students. The Prezi breaks it down into manageable chunks will pictures to illustrate.

The Prezi allows users to add pictures, text, shapes, and movies. You also create a path for the presentation to follow – which zooms in and out – so viewers see the whole picture and specific details.

Another teacher who saw the Prezi made the comment:

“This is so cool!  It’s sort of like an interactive book with fun pictures.  It’s the modern version of the pop-up book.”

I like the comparison of the Prezi to a modern pop-up book. Additional Prezis might be created to go along with the chapter, but at 4+ hours of labor per chapter that is a huge investment of time.

    May I ask how you shared this with your class?

      I posted the link on our CMS and they clicked on it. Pairs of students went through the Prezi at their own pace to compare what we had read in class with the physical books with the digitally enhanced version.
