#19 - Week 8 - LibraryThing

LibraryThing is probably the easiest tool to navigate that we have been introduced to this semester. I have searched for certain books from time to time and have stumbled on the LibraryThing website. However, I never thought about creating an account and went on my merry way. I think I should have considered exploring the site more thoroughly. It is very easy to set up, navigate, and the option of tag searching lets a user narrow down the amount of information that he or she wants to choose from or sort through. I added several books that could be used in conjunction with my lesson plan. It took about fifteen minutes to determine if the books were relevant to the lesson and catalog them. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Note: I'm sorry, Dr. Farmer, but I am not sure how to create a link to the above webpage. I have been searching for a while now, but all the information that I found explained what a link is, but not how to link a webpage. If you respond to this, can you please give me a pointer or two on linking the webpage? I know it's not difficult, but I just can't get it right. Thanks.

I also completed a second WebQuest lesson plan that involves more web-based activities. It is posted on the class wiki. I am not looking for a different grade or anything like that - I just thought I should, and that it will help me out in the long run if we have any other assignments related to the lesson plan.
