Pam Berger has written a post about Learning in the Web2.0 World. She comments on the need for teaching students Graphic literacy, Navigation, Context, Skepticism, Focus, Ethical Behavior. Ideas worth passing on to your administrators and staff.
Hot off the press, the new Katherine Holubitsky book "Tweaked" is out. It's set in NVan and is about a kid who's older brother is addicted to crytal meth. You may have caught the review in the Globe and Mail recently. From the back cover:
Gordie Jessup is a good kid, but he's living in a nightmare. His older brother's two-year addiction to crystal meth has left their family emotionally and financially drained. And just when Gordie thinks he can no longer stand the manipulating, the lying and the stealing, things get even worse.
While searching for reviews online I came across Colin Chafer's library site at Howe Sound Secondary. I liked his page explaining REBEL, the school's silent reading program.
