How I Use It
One of the beauties of LitPick is that readers of all levels would be comfortable using the site. The genres of the titles are included in the description along with the publication date, age level, and an additional "learn more " feature. I would use it in a genre specific assignment. A teacher could assign a genre specific book review assignment and their students would have easy access to ebooks in that category.
Litpick engages students from the moment they visit the site. Even the most adverse readers could feasibly find something that they are interested in reading on the site. Litpick provides a browsing ability at one's fingertips and reviews of the books by all different levels of readers. Students are writing reviews for their peers and in the process, teachers are becoming more aware of the interests of their students. Litpick encourages students to share their opinions in a relaxed, non-pressured environment. In this stress- free atmosphere, students will become stronger and more confident readers.
