If you are reading this then you know how to read! This is a project I built in conjunction with my Librarian and an English Teacher.
I have been "forcing" my mathematics students to read, you know like books and stuff. My librarian has inspired me; I just:
* go to the schools library web page
* log in
* search for books
* add the ones I like to my personal list
* and check out 20 books at a time for one month
* the books are stored in my classroom for the month
When I have the time, students get the books, read them for 10 minutes, take notes and vocabulary words. Take 5 min to blog about their reading on the internal wiki. So this sometimes occurs zero times per week and sometimes three times per week; depending on when I finish with lecture early or not.
So far I am having fun with it, the students like it, so that is great.
