The Glass Castle




This is a book that I am reading at the moment and I am thrilled with it but at the same time angry with it.
I haven't finished it yet I am reading page 116 out of 288. So far I can describe that this book left a bitter taste in my mouth.
The book is a memoir about a journalist "Jannette Walls" and her difficult life growing up. This book shows at the same time a shocking real life story and her strength and positive view about life.

Great Video About Human Behavior

"Reading is fundamental" Dr. Krashen says.



Dr. Krashen said in his lecture in Fairfax:

"The better the SCHOOL LIBRARY is the better the reading scores are"

"Students have to have ACCESS to books in a comfortable and quiet place and this place is the SCHOOL LIBRARY"

Here are some websites suggested by him:

Dr. Krashen's website

The International Journal of Foreign Language Teaching


Susan Ohanian's website

Jim Trelease's website

Alfie Kohn's website


ESL Podcast (This website is run by his former student)

Give books away. Get books you want


Some tips he gave in the workshop:

READ in the language you want to learn, READ in your own language, READ, READ and READ!
