Can we take down the quote from the back of the book? I do not think it adds to the introduction page or our website. We should write something ourselves. What do you guys think?
I agree. If we still want to do a summary that the publisher released, we need to use one that is cite-able. Maybe the summary that is posted on Amazon would work or the one on the publisher’s website.
I will probably mess with it later. We could post the summary under the photograph of the novel or in place of it (with the cover page moved to where the “My Overstuffed Bookshelf” photo is) so the standards, goals and into statement are right at the top of the page and people don’t have to scroll to find them. I’ll work on it.
I made some changes! Check it out and let me know what you think.
It looks good!
I like th changes that have been made thus far….I began to mess with the connections page to revise some of the descriptions that we used….let me know what you think & if you want to add or take away something thats fine! 🙂
I also mentioned a poem that one could pair with the novel. Here’s what it says:
“The poem “Cartoon Physics, part 1” by Nick Flynn can be used with The House of Tomorrow. Both texts incorporate science, mention the design of the universe, and the function of the world. The concept of learning from ones mistakes are also seen in both texts. In The House of Tomorrow, Sebastian’s stance on Fuller’s philosophy changes and develops. Sebastian says what he was doing before was a mistake. In the book and the poem, both authors leave the reader with a sense of accomplishment when one recognizes their mistake.”
It’s at the bottom of the connections page.
