Google Apps Integration & Chrome Extensions




It all started with the idea of creating yearly posters of recommended reading instead of a list of required reading.  
The QR Code at the bottom links to a Goodreads group where all of the books are tagged and shelved.  In this way, students can simply use this as a research tool without having an account.

          

Then we thought, how can we use these to further promote independent reading?  
How can we create a better reading challenge? blah

BOOK TOURNAMENTS VIA BRACKETS

Book tournaments are a popular way of generating interest in books, e.g., School Library Journal does an annual Battle of the Books and the Morning News does an annual book tournament.
