Your Brain on Books: Scientific American - 12 views

    One of my favorite inquiries is how the brain works with language. This book looks fascinating!

    "Learning to read seems to be one of the more important changes that we impose to our children's brain. The impact that it has on us is tantalizing. It raises very fundamental issues of how the brain and culture interact. "

    This is a great site that I have used for many years. I have used it with elementary (5th grade) students several years However, teachers should know that you need to monitor and teach use of this site. It is essentially a social networking site and the kids will learn to use it as such very quickly. There are adult themed books as well as independent groups where inappropriate discussions take place. I have emailed Shelfari and asked if they plan to make an education version or limited account option for use with students. That being said I think it's a great platform for teaching those essential netiquette skills!
    This is similar to LibraryThing, which I've used with high school and college students. It's always great to come across different applications. Thanks.
