Students love the social network Goodreads
If you run any kind of independent reading program or readers workshop, the social network, Goodreads.com, is a must for you and your students.
Goodreads is a wonderful community of readers that students love, because not only does Goodreads help students organize what their reading online, Goodreads recommends books, based on what students are reading.
Plus, students can share what they're reading with their peers and their teacher, recommend books, review books and immediately share their ratings and comments on other social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
This video shows you how to easily get students started on Goodreads.
