So... is Facebook's IPO going to actually drive people here to G+? I hope so.

Watch until the very end.

Thanks to +weston green of for sharing with me this morning!

Okay, here is a list of genres my class is interested in reading. I will pick a book for each genre and then the students will form book clubs of 4-5 students. I'm also showing what books I am considering so far. I would LOVE any suggestions you have to make on titles. I want to move beyond supermarket pulp--not that there is anything wrong with that. I need there to be enough 'oomph' to the book that students will have plenty to work with as I assign them some research on the author/novel, pull vocabulary from the books, and have them do graphic organizers comparing and contrasting characters, tracking important plot elements, etc.

Historical Fiction | The March by E.L. Doctorw
Chick Lit | Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell (pushing it w/this one)
Sports Based Literature | Shoeless Joe by Thomas Kinsella
Science Fiction | A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter M. Miller
Courtroom Thriller
Action Adventure

Help me, Book Lovers! I need this list ready to go by Monday, 10/3.

What the heck. It was a short quiz.

Struggling to articulate my discomfort with what I will describe as angry pacifism. It bothers me to read the words of people who claim that peace is the most important thing, but who come across in a hostile manner, who call others names, and who belittle those they oppose.

Any sleep apnea sufferers here? Thinking of putting together a circle here on Google +. Could use some encouragement/troubleshooting support, etc.
