Thing #11

I think that LibraryThing would be fun to make with a Language Arts class. The students could see what books their peers are reading, which to could lead to them reading a different book. Each time a student checked out new books, the teacher could add it to the list of books that were read. At the end of the year, the students could see how many books as a class they read. This would push them to read book they may not have read or to find books they may not have known about.


  1. good idea...wonder if it would be a way to show the students their "growth" in reading by showing how much their initial list grew thru the year???

  2. It would also show how interests can change as they learn different things. They could even incorporate math by making a graph of fiction and nonfiction books.
