We are read in different ways.  Reflecting on this as we turn the pages, we learn a lot about ourselves and what types of classroom environments we can provide.

  1. You would have to post the poll in a newspaper or magazine to get any responses to the 5th category (all traditional). Right?

  2. I had anywhere from 5 to 8 print magazine subscriptions and subscribed to 2 print newspapers in recent years. Now I have let every print subscription lapse except for the weekend newspaper. The weekend newspaper feels luxurious, but for all other needs online magazines, online news, twitter lists, and TV are more immediate and useful.

  3. Good point, Larry. The sample in this case would likely be more inclined to do reading online or electronically. I too find that it is my preference. We find it in our own practice as educators. Facilitating this for our students also is important.
