Get Connected: Pinterest Book Boards in the Classroom

This high school English project was designed to make meaningful learning connections. It's a contemporary, relevant way to make learning meaningful while making essential global connections.

It's all about connections ... As an avid lover of books & social media, I created the following high school English assignment with connections in mind.

Making connections between books and personal experience or other books read always activates background knowledge and helps bring a book to life. Meaningful personal connections are essential for learning. Without significant learning experiences we rely on rote memorization and meaningless regurgitation. A commonly used texting acronym aptly describes the situation: DGAF (I'll let you figure that one out).

Check out the link below to make creative, meaningful connections between books and life.

This assignment is just another contemporary, relevant way to make learning meaningful while making essential global connections through technology.
