*Reading with the Stars

I have dubbed my use of  “Highbrow,” a deep zoom widget designed by  Reinhard Engles (Harvard University Libraries), “Reading with the Stars.”  By emphasizing the value of the widget for its ability to get students to engage with the text and each other in acts of what Ralph Waldo Emerson called “creative reading,” the focus is on the widget’s value as a tool for building a student built archive of reading responses.
