Class Collection of Book Reviews

Use Google Docs to create an online class collection of reviews of independent reading books. Throughout the year, learners post reviews for at least two of the novels they read and class members respond to the reviews, providing input and giving feedback. Links to sample pages of student book reviews are available and requirements for a review are listed.
