In the second video, see what that note looks like on a Twitter feed.
My vision for the coming year is to highlight and make notes on passages that I want students to pay close attention to. I think it would be cool to highlight a passage we will be discussing in the next lesson and in the note I can pose a thought-provoking question. Students can then preview the passages and topics that will be discussed in the upcoming class. For example, I might highlight a particular literary device or narrative technique that we are currently studying. I could also highlight a symbol and my note could challenge students to consider a deeper significance to the passage.
If I have any students using Kindles, I would love to have them share their notes. Other students and I can follow those notes and gauge the reaction to the night's reading. I think of it as a way to get the discussion started before class even begins.
