Learners for Life
What is a 21st Century learner? How do we know what we need to know? For me (the teacher) to ponder: Unless I am willing to do more than is required, I am probably not worth what I am paid.
Reading--Book Review

Please prepare a book review (using the format shown below) from one of the books you read.  This will be a different book from the one you will read for the End of the Quarter project.  Share your book review in a new post on your Reading Blog.

Here is the book review format to follow:
