I started doing something new with my classes each Friday this year. I shared book reviews for books I thought they might enjoy. Over time, in order to save class time, I began recording these reviews as BookCast podcasts. I am not sure if my students are listening to them or enjoying them (they don’t know it, but using the class blog and responding to what I do for them at that site will be a grade requirement next semester), but I thought I’d post them here as well, for those of you readers who might truly enjoy them. Keep in mind the podcast is aimed at teenagers; however, you might find some new reading material among the reviews.
BookCast 1: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll and The Coffin Quilt by Ann Rinaldi.
I’ll add the other BookCasts over the next few weeks and from thereafter, I’ll cross-post the BookCasts here.
