  • Kindle Kids' Corner

    I'm excited to announce a partnership project between my school and Stephen Windwalker of the Kindle Nation Daily blog. Our students are writing reviews for Stephen's Kindle Kids' corner blog as they work on their writing skills and to help us build our ebook library at the school. We're very excited about this project and Dru F – the first reviewer from Westwood!

    Catch this blog for the Kindle Nation kid book reviews as we work to start with our students here at Westwood but stay tuned for other plans at a later date! Who knows, but he great thing is that these reviews will be by kids for kids.

I truly believe that involve students in real project is a great idea. They learn and produce content with a goal. It is, for sure, giving them a lot more motivation and it is useful for them and their readers. It can be interesting to see what might be other way to involve student work in real projects.
