Rationale: This exercise was a great way to experience a new technology. I had never put information into a database before, but I feel that I am more confident in understanding the basics. A database, much like this one, will be very useful in an English classroom because students can preview the books that they will need to obtain for a class. When students have different options for book reports or research presentations, a centralized list of books gives them a springboard. Also, this database is a great way for teachers to keep inventory on exactly what books they have. If there is a way to add a link or a description/comment bubble to the title of each book that would be a great benefit for students as well. I hope that there will be many opportunities to implement this database exercise routinely in my future classrooms.
