Roland Bartholomew Dexter the Third has been told his whole life that the world outside his parents' barbershop is a dangerous place, so he's never been outside. But when he suspects that someone is keeping his family trapped, he and his new friend Becky decide to find out why. Loose Strands is an adventure novel about tough choices, and uses its unique Choose Your Path interface to encourage readers to confront the consequences of their decisions. The story provides launching points for discussions about regret, censorship, and feeling trapped. This webinar shows how you can use Loose Strands (named by USA Today's Jinny Gudmundsen as one of the year's best apps for teaching SEL [social and emotional learning], an AASL 2015 Best App for Teaching & Learning, and winner of the 2015 Digital Book Award for best children's app) to introduce students 9+ to these themes.
