A Conversation with Candace Fleming - ReadWriteThink

A Conversation with Candace Fleming - ReadWriteThink | AdLit | Scoop.it
In the world of young adult literature, some of today’s best and most powerful stories are being told by authors of nonfiction. Candace Fleming is one of those authors. Her newest book, The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion and the Fall of Imperial Russia, is both a portrait of Russia’s last royal family and a look at the causes of revolution. It’s an examination of the past, and it’s a cautionary tale that poses questions about our current world: How is today’s wealth gap the same or different from the wealth gap in Tsarist Russia? How should political leaders respond in the face of civic unrest? How are the fates of the powerful and the powerless intertwined?

But there’s more than politics and history here. When you read The Family Romanov, you’ll encounter complex characters, evocative settings, and page-turning suspense. Tune in to hear Candace Fleming discuss the origins of The Family Romanov, research as a process of questioning, and how authors of nonfiction are pushing the envelope in books for today’s teens.

How Not to Cite an Image

How Not to Cite an Image | AdLit | Scoop.it

Between great public domain image sources like Pixabay and Creative Commons image search tools there are few occasions when students should have to resort to claiming fair use to use a copyrighted image. If they do end up at that step, they should at least give proper credit to the owner of the image.

"One of the greatest difficulties for writing teachers is convincing students that writing is a recursive process. It does not come to us as money does from the Tooth Fairy. It’s simply not a one-and-done process. It takes several steps and many revisions to produce a quality piece."

The best way to get ready to explain and defend a position on some controversial issue is to explore a topic thoughtfully, considering both sides of the issue before preparing an essay plan.
