I woke up early this morning in the hotel room in San Antonio, so I decided to grade some assignments before I hit the shower. My BH was still sound asleep, so I grabbed my laptop and curled up on the couch to read the blog entries students had been working on for the semester. One of the students named her blog The Book Bank. And of course, that started a whole train of thought for me. I talked about gateway books last week, now I was turning to the idea of book banks.
What is the currency of a book bank other than books? Books have value. They can be deposited and withdrawn. The can earn interest. They definitely pay dividends. And I believe they are a great investment as well.
What if we help our students become book bankers, too?
