Learning Log – Goodreads

20 Feb

Reading Group Books

I plan on using Goodreads to organize books I have read for instructional as well as personal purposes.  I may decide to join a discussion group.  I will use the book recommendations to find other books I may be interested in reading.  Students can use it for the same purpose.  For example, if they like The Dark is Rising, they may also want to read A Wrinkle in Time.  Students are required to read 25 books independently each school year; so, Goodreads is a wonderful way for students to log, share, rate, and write a review for each book they have read.  (This would beat collecting reading logs every week, for sure!)  We could even have online literature circles if we started a group!
