In the fall of 1960 an ailing, out-of-sorts John Steinbeck, pretty much depleted as a novelist, decided that his problem was he had lost touch with America. He outfitted a three-quarter-ton pickup truck as a sort of land yacht and set off from his home in Sag Harbor, N.Y., with his French poodle, Charley, to drive cross-country. The idea was that he would travel alone, stay at campgrounds and reconnect himself with the country by talking to the locals he met along the way.
John Steinbeck and Charley - "Travels with Charley: In Search of America" is a travelogue written by author John Steinbeck. It recounts tales of a 1960 road trip with his French standard poodle, Charley, around the US.
Author John Steinbeck with his standard Poodle, Charley whom he portrayed so brilliantly in his 1962 non-fiction book - 'Travels With Charley'
"... I took one companion on my journey – an old French gentleman poodle known as Charley." - John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley

Author's purpose - how about because they were hungry and were hoping to make a couple bucks? As an English minor I would have to say that college English was the first time English classes made sense all the time.

fotobabble talking photos
Module: Storytelling with Mobile Devices. Tool. Simple but interesting application that allows to add sound to any image. I see it as a great tool for students. I would use fotobabble for oral assessment, creative writing, pre-written language activities, share their hobbies, informative tool , Art history tool, pen pals exchange, book report, internet scavenger hunt, record fun facts ... .
Fotobabble is an app that where you can add audio content to an image. You can create a personalized greeting card and even create a digital story. A possible assignment can be to create a personalized holiday, birthday Card. Another activity would be to have the student pretend that they are sending a travel postcards back home while visiting a foreign country. This app really allows for originality.
