Day 1, Session 2B Overview
Not only is it a challenge to motivate students to read in our fast-paced society, it's a challenge to get their attention at all! We are competing with games, gadgets and phones that stream, entertain, and divert. However, we can join forces with these distractions by using eye-catching book review blogs to induce students to read, to critique, to evaluate and to awaken awareness of internet etiquette, privacy, safety and savvy.
