What if students in your class were as excited about reading books as they were about video games, pop stars, or sports? That's the goal of the educational website Bookopolis.
This free website allows teachers to create a class account and track student reading. All the while, students can choose an avatar, explore new books, create a bookshelf, share book ideas with friends, earn points and badges, and show off their book knowledge by answering book report questions!
This website could truly bring a love of reading back for students and let teachers pitch cumbersome reading journals. It's definitely worth a look!
