Primarily use AL for short stories and Shakespeare. It is fabulous for Shakespeare because it lets me add "crib notes" and translations to make the text easier for the students to comprehend (plus added videos) - plus the quizzes are self marking (basically) -- Also have books loaded for students who can't acquire their own books.
Do as much as you can through AL -- make it interactive with a variety of questions - add videos to keep students engaged. Even reluctant readers love AL.
