Teacher Info


This buILder was created by Mira Dougherty-Johnson.

It is designed to engage high-schoolers in the act of selecting reading material for pleasure. Intended for a school with an institutional free, voluntary reading program or any silent sustained reading time, it strives to solve the problem of students aimlessly grabbing for something (anything!) to read during that time. It incorporates a bit of soul-searching as well as some simple technology integration. In addition to students making more focused reading choices, the end result will also be a library media center decorated with stunning word cloud collages. It should take one 50 minute class period. In general, the 9th grade humanities classes schedule this library time in the beginning of the school year, but it can be used anytime with other grades as well.
