The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Teaching Hoot By Carl Hiaasen: Setting and Humans & Environment

Teaching Hoot By Carl Carl Hiaasen:  
Setting and Humans & Environment

My students live in the great state of Virginia.  Like Roy, in the novel Hoot, we too live in a watershed district, but our watershed district could not be more different than the one in HOOT.  So to help students "GET IT" is use this fabulous TED TALK VIDEO The video really helps them see Florida and what the Everglades has to offer.

How do you make a novel you are teaching come alive?  Let us know here at The Things You Can Read.

Happy Reading & Writing
