I'm a teacher librarian & recently started a community based blog for getting boys to read - http://GettingBoysToRead.com. Please send me a friend request if you'd like to network, share ideas, and learn more about getting boys to read.
I am looking for ways to connect more effectively with our students too. Check out my blog about Millennials, Gen Y's etc from The Shifted Librarian archive for September 2006. I have also found the students do not want a lecture and PP session. Podcasting is a possibility.
