I asked 22 different teachers, in 8 tweets, to leave their favorite book in the comments section. TWELVE teachers responded, and now this gal has many more books to add to her "to read" pile! I hope, while she's home, she's able to take the time to read and enjoy the literature we love, too! When she's feeling better, I'm positive she'll write about all she's read.
Her next post explained her disease, and she's now ready to share it with our classes. This makes me so very excited. When she does, hopefully peers will ask a lot of good questions and show some empathy.
One student-written post + one (or 8) tweets = SHARING & GROWING & LEARNING.
