A partner shares

I co-ordinate literacy, and promote the Discovery Education Secondary service in school because I believe it extends students' learning, it extends their literacy and I think it promotes speaking and listening. As an English teacher, I may not want to show an entire play, or may want to just show a key scene, and I can draw a lot of those clips up very quickly, very easily.
