Students at a Minnesota middle school used Skype to interview the author of a novel they are reading as part of the school's book club. Reading teacher Linnea Gamache arranged the video-conference with author Hal Malchow, who co-wrote with his son the book, "The Sword of Darrow," an adventure tale designed and formatted especially for students with dyslexia but meant to appeal to all audiences. "I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to get students to read," Gamache said. "I also look for ways to partner reading with technology because that's such a big part of what a 21st century reader will have to deal with."
