Joan's comment to Kim "Baseball"

I totally hear what you're saying about the urgency to hand off a class room set of novels to the next teacher. For my students, oftentimes, they consider reading Cliff Notes as the first read and maybe opening the novel their second read. Do you think Gallagher was suggesting that specfic activities involve close reading of certain sections/pages of the novel? The second read would be a hard sell just because of the demands of six other classes.

Comments

Joan, did you have trouble making a comment directly on Kim's entry? Let me know, and I can help you figure it out during one of our breaks. Thanks, all, for a lively discussion. I'm really enjoying reading and commenting on all the books (which is why I haven't posted yet-- sorry!).

I too have been thinking about the idea of second reads and for me, working with 3rd and 5th grade students I sometimes use oral class reading time to develop discussion and alow each person to hear and see the same words and ideas at the same time. I have found that for those who have difficulty getting started the read aloud or go-round are a valuable technique to spur the slow starter. This also offers me the opportunity to model and monitor the discussion and get a healthy start.

Some cool stuff...

Hands down, Apple's app store wins by a mile. It's a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I'm not sure I'd want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
