I can‘t tell if #Hester is intrigued, excited, or just giving me the side-eye.

Cheating Lessons | James M. Lang
post image
Pickpick

This was a pretty good book full of ideas about how to decrease student cheating. I read it in bits and pieces over the last few months, but it was written in a way that I never felt like I had to go back to remind myself where I was. I would not say it‘s a fun read, but it wasn‘t very dense and gave me some good ideas to try next semester.

This one took a while to get through. It‘s great, but a bit dense and definitely not a light read. But the prescience of Roth‘s novel, written 10 years before Trump was elected, is pretty impressive and a bit creepy!.

The prescience of this book (published in 2004) is a bit creepy and frightening.

Wannabe_Quijote @Samplergal So far, I‘m loving it...and finding it a bit creepy. In 2004, Roth sure had a lot to say about what would happen in 2016! 1mo
Samplergal @Wannabe_Quijote no kidding. It was one of my favorites from last year. 1mo
