How I Use It
Goodreads is a great way to make the "old school" book report interactive and introduce students to the community of readers. It's really more appropriate for oldest students (grades 10-12 perhaps) but it can give them a genuine way to engage with other readers about what they have read.
My Take
Goodreads is a great way to to enhance older students' learning and love of reading by introducing them to a world of readers where they can interact with others who share their reading interests. Another plus: Goodreads gives their writing about what they read a genuine audience. The only caveat: this is mostly an adult site and more appropriate for older readers.
