Learning Log – GoodReads

I have recently crated a small bookshelf on GoodReads of additional resources I can use when preparing a unit on the American Revolution.  For this bookshelf, I chose to group books that I would use while preparing a lesson  However, this is not the only way to use GoodReads.  This website is also useful in finding out what students enjoy reading and in recommending suitable fiction and non-fiction for each unit.  Also, I would personally encourage students to post reviews on books they have read (historically based) and discuss how effective and accurate they found the books.  This can help teach students to be thoughtful and reflective thinkers and readers.

I'm a grad student at McDaniel College. This blog is an assignment for class, but I intend to keep working on it even after this semester.
