A few people that I know are in the process of populating their shiny new RSS feeds this week. I spent some time updating my links toward the bottom of the left sidebar recently, so take a peek at some of my favorite edublogs, and please suggest others that I might want to add! I’m exploring some new reads here. Why not consider encouraging students to create and keep up with their own feeds this summer rather than limiting their “summer reading novels” to those predefined and named within a teacher-created list? Does anyone do this already? Please feel free to share!
I haven’t thought about specifically including blog reading (many of my students do not have consistant access to the internet at home), but I have included in my summer reading letter to parents that newspaper, magazine and internet reading can be just as beneficial as novels.
That’s a great point, Sheri. You’ve done so much to provide great choice to your kids this year….just one more neat example.
