Hooked on Books 2006-2007
How will you inspire your students to read this year? Why not try a project that will get your students reading, talking and writing. Hooked on Books encourages your students to take time to read, share and reflect -- with children in their class, their country, world-wide.
Be sure you have permission to post student work on the World Wide Web. School districts usually have requirements that teachers must follow.
