I'd love to use your author's purpose power point with comic stripe writing assignment with my low level grade 6-8 readers. Would you be willing to send it to me? I love the fact that it has the speakers worked into the PP so my really lower level students can go back & review the PP again and listen. Thank you, rafeegrady@gmail.com Suzanne
