Despite the reports of the death of RSS (largely exaggerated), Google Reader continues to offer increasingly sophisticated tools. Here is a great one, courtesy of Lifehacker: create a quick PDF file from any article you like.

Here is how it works. Just go to your settings tab in Google Reader, Select Send To, and then look down to find the custom URL option. Fill in the fields with the information provided here at Digital Inspiration. Worked perfectly for me the first time. Now, when you like an article, you can star it, but you could also hit “send to,” select the new PDF icon you see, and get an instant PDF file.

This would be perfect in a classroom with one instructor station and one Google Reader account. Teachers can browse their Reader, find fitting articles, create PDFs and print with ease.
