Goals:

  • To encourage reading by creating a social forum for sharing books.

  • To connect students through a common platform: books.
  • To encourage students to express their thoughts and understanding through writing.
  • To foster digital citizenship skills through participation in a social platform for discussion purposes.

Duration:

September 2013- January 2014

Targeted Age Groups:

Most Newbery books are those that are targeted for grades 4-8. (10-15 yrs). However any age student and adults can join the conversation as long as they read the book they are commenting on!

How it Works:

Complete directions can be found on the blog's homepage.

How to Join:

If you are joining your whole class, I'd love if you'd comment on the homepage of the blog. I'm a school librarian so I'm advertising to the whole school but concentrating my efforts with our Nook Book Clubs. I would love to get classes together; there's a google form for that also!
