Three hours have passed? Wow! I began with the resources Connie and Steve made available on the home page, but then quickly went to the RSS Compendium referenced in Richardson's text. After seeing what this had to offer, I decided to search for Foreign Language RSS Feeds and found a great site called multilingual books . This site has a wealth of information in French, German, and Spanish and it will take me some time to go through it because it is not only organized by categories such as magazines, newspapers, video, etc., but also by country! While most of the sites are beyond beginning level language students, I do believe that I will be able to find many authentic sources here for them to view...it will just take time. (As an aside, I tried to gmail this site to Henry and well, let's just say it took me a bit of time to do that. Guess I have to get used to using gmail!)
I have set up a few folders on Google Reader -- education, technology, our blogs, French magazines and newspapers -- but still have more to do. I will also want to check the folders to see if I have too much to keep up with already. Right now the goal is to see what is out there, check the updates, and to see if I'm actually reading them.
Setting up my initial RSS Feeds is time consuming, but I appreciate the opportunity to search and apply what I'm learning immediately. Thank you!
