Reading Blog for Summer Reading!

I am posting this article, courtesy of ASCD Smart Brief.  It is excellent and something educators here in Maine have the capacity to implement.  We need to seriously think about something like this.  Blogs engage students in a way that will amaze teachers!!

  • Reading project aims to engage students during the summer
    An Ohio junior high school is working to keep students reading and using critical-thinking skills during the summer. The school distributed copies of "Anything but Typical," a story about a boy with autism, to all students going into grades 6-8. The students are asked to read the book and participate in an online discussion with their classmates on a school blog. "This is sort of like the kickoff book, and hopefully by using the blog they will have friends who recommend other books," said Kadee Anstadt, director of teaching and learning.
