Ingenious. Leave it to a high school teacher to discover an innovative way to immerse students in great literature. While many are complaining of an illiterate generation this teacher is making sure her students understand the importance of a good book. And what, may you ask, is this brilliant idea?
"I used Shelfari with my students last semester and it was GREAT. Kids who don't normally read at all were reading and posting great discussions. I have several other teachers in my school doing the same project with their students now. I LOVE Shelfari and am completely addicted!" -Debbie
Shameless promotion? Perhaps. Somehow I think parents, teachers and students will forgive us for this little bit of boasting.
