Are you still on the fence about writing in your books, even after Practicum?  Join Lisa Bailey, Marc Hays, and Stephanie Meter as they reveal how “marking the text” made reading Animal Farm a different experience this time around.  You’ll gain some practical tips on methods of marking, and discover how marking your books leads to conversation:  with the book, with the author, with yourself, and with others!  (This is the second episode in a series using Animal Farm to illustrate the tools good readers use.)
