This 1-year subscription gives online access to Rufus et gladiatores for a teacher and up to 180 students. Each listen-and-read chapter has an interactive Gap Fill exercise from Textivate. A printable Index is provided for each book. Teacher collaboration is encouraged. Using the Google form found in each Index teachers can contribute the materials they create in any platform for the benefit of other teachers. Once approved by the author it will go on the Storylabs platform.
All individual accounts include e-notebooks, which can be used by teachers for lesson plans and notes, and used by students to reflect on their reading and comprehension. Teachers can view the entries in these student notebooks and keep students accountable with the time-per-file tracker.
"This collection of 28 stories was intended to replace a workbook, supplying each student with their own source of additional input to reinforce the vocabulary in each chapter of Rufus et arma atra. Reading each chapter expansion, however, exposes students to far more words than in the original novella. The expansions do add details to certain characters and events from Rufus et arma atra, but there’s also additional, new cultural information about Rome, and gladiators."
