Be free, permanent and publicSupport the writing process and involve students in the application of multiple literacies: reading, writing, speaking listening and visualizingBe take-and-bake, with activities intuitive and/or simple enough to teach next periodEncourage student inquiry, autonomy and high expectationsPrompt me to wonder, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Sharon Bakar's curator insight, October 28, 2013 12:06 AM

"Do we lose something important – some part of ourselves – by letting the products that define our lives become ethereal? Or is it our reluctance to jump on the technology train that says the most about who we are?"

I have come to love reading digitally, which has greatly surprised me.  My relationship to physical books is changing, and I find I buy books for my shelves now AFTER I have read and loved them on Kindle. I will always want physical books on my shelves, as they furnish a room and are part of who I am.  It is growing more important to me that the books I keep are really nice copies - so I will buy hardbacks and trade-paperbacks rather than mass-market paperbacks.

I am also less sentimental about keeping books I haven't enjoyed so much, or won't reread and have recently given several hundred to a community library.
