Book talking goes Hi-Tech!
Talking about books happens everywhere…book stores, coffee shops, restaurants…online! Blogs, podcasts, etc. are the new way to let others know about the books you are reading and to talk about them. Below are links to some of my favorites as well as my own VoiceThread called Flash-talks where I deliver one or two line hooks about some of the books I read. Feel free to post your comments on the books…I’d love to hear/read what you have to say!
I also help run a middle school book club, Flights of Fantasy. This book club will be changing this year. Instead of meeting together in a place at a specific time, we will be discussing books online. I have not decided the medium (blog, Edmodo, Collaborize, etc.) yet but, when I do I will post on my main page and update the link here. To start with, it will be open only to my students but, I would like to open it up to middle and high school students everywhere, eventually!
