Classroom Publishing: A Practical Guide for Teachers (Openbook) by Laurie King
Classroom Publishing: A Practical Guide for Teachers (Openbook)

Samwise, February 22, 2010

This book is a wonderful resource for teachers K-12 (and I suspect it might even help some high education teachers). It gives an overview of the different areas of publishing, and it gives real life examples of how teachers have incorporated publishing in their classrooms. This book would also be helpful for those who oversee student publications like yearbooks, school newspapers, or literary magazines. After reading this book, I suspect that using publishing in the classroom would also be helpful in school subjects apart from language arts or English. This book also has a helpful website with some lesson plans and a blog that continues on some of the topics addressed in the book. www.ooliganpress.pdx.edu/cp

To sum it up, I'm really excited about this book!I think this is something that every teacher should add to their library!

A Heart for Any Fate by Linda Crew
A Heart for Any Fate

Samwise, December 14, 2009

This is one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a long time! A good old-fashioned pioneer story full of joy and hardship. It's a coming of age story about a 17 year old girl who has to grow up quickly in order to survive the West and take care of the ones she loves. The story is based off of a real family that pioneered the Oregon Trail. This would be a great read for young adults and adults!

Ricochet River by Robin Cody
Ricochet River

Samwise, December 7, 2009

An interesting story of three teenagers coming of age in a small town. The book deals with issues of prejudice, freedom, and fitting in. The book is also a good area piece of northeastern Oregon.

Good Friday by Tony Wolk
Good Friday

Samwise, November 25, 2009

I found this to be a fun and fluffy read. I thought the idea of Lincoln time traveling was interesting, but I couldn't buy into the romance part of the story. Maybe it's just my perception of what Lincoln was like, but I have a hard time imagining that he would be the type of guy to have a one night fling with a woman and fall in love with her. It just doesn't really sound like something Honest Abe would do.

Fort Clatsop: Rebuilding an Icon by The Daily Astorian
Fort Clatsop: Rebuilding an Icon

Samwise, November 6, 2009

A wonderful little gem. Anyone who's ever visited Fort Clatsop or who is interested in the Lewis and Clark expedition will like this book about the history of the site and the multiple reconstructions that have been made.
