An interesting model of what can be done with reading weblogs…we just discussed reading schedule for the new book in the Lit class and I have the vision of the kids keeping reading journals like this online. I have eight in-class support kids first quarter, so it will be interesting to see at what level they have access and to what level they adopt the idea. I’m thinking that for some of them it might be a cool kind of jolt…publishing, getting some response. Might be a motivator for them.
Of course, if all the kids had their reading logs online, what would prevent all of them from just reading each other’s and stealing ideas? (They would do that???) I’m such a cynic…
A couple more peaceful days left in Bellows Falls, then on to Middlebury to meet Sarah and friends; home Wednesday.
