Earlier this week at the TCEA conference in Austin, Texas I ran a short workshop about Google Books. One of the things that we did in that session was clip and share sections of free Google ebooks. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how to clip and share sections of free Google ebooks.
Applications for Education
Clipping and sharing a section of a free Google ebook in your classroom blog is a great way to direct students to a particular passage that you want them to read and comment on. In the same blog post that you share a section of a Google ebook you should also insert some questions for students to think about and respond to in the comments of your classroom blog.
