Penelope's curator insight, February 3, 3:22 PM

 

I've read many of these writing tips before, but they are worth repeating. Some of the best:

 

1) Write to one person

2) Don't forget about yourself

3) Use stories

 

Read the rest for some other tips on how to engage and not be a big bore!

How Rereading The Great Gatsby Will Turn You Into a Superfan

How Rereading The Great Gatsby Will Turn You Into a Superfan | AdLit | Scoop.it

Although we think of revision as a writer’s act, it may be helpful to think of it as an act of reading. It was said of Max Perkins, who edited some of the greatest writers of the 20th century, that he had the ability to read a text and “see its unrealized potential,” a necessary prequel to persuading the writer to revise.

 

This leads me to the conviction that revision is not reserved for authors and editors. It is also a power that belongs to all readers, especially ones who undertake multiple readings of a text over time.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, February 9, 10:07 AM

This is. . .interesting. I could see something like this being of interest to students for some projects. I'm not sure most writers would be able to or willing to adopt this process but a lot depends on the nature of the narrative and how authors would like to able to shape the story, or have their readers shape the story.

In War & Peace, Paul Dano Brings One of Literature’s Most Moving Characters to Life

In War & Peace, Paul Dano Brings One of Literature’s Most Moving Characters to Life | AdLit | Scoop.it
Dano’s Pierre plods around in a jabot and tails, peering through his round spectacles like a sad, frightened owl, bumbling from drawing room to ballroom to icy dueling ground. His abundant charm is naturally lost on the Russian aristocracy, but of course not on Natasha, played here with appealing, doe-eyed vulnerability by Lily James (Downton Abbey). Dano said the trick with Pierre, whose foibles can seem so funny—he is a hoot in the book, a fat boozehound who is always saying the wrong thing at parties—is to play him straight, to resist the temptation to turn him into a purely comic figure. “It’s a fine line to walk,” he told me by phone. “I do think Pierre is very funny, but you also can’t play it too funny or make fun of him. Pierre is such a beautiful soul. He’s an open vessel in a society that was so close-minded. And that’s part of what made him sort of awkward, his truthfulness.”

INFOhio Curriculum Toolbox's curator insight, January 28, 10:39 PM

The article from Instructor (Winter 2014) offers advice for implementing close reading in the classroom. Topics discussed include the introduction of the Common Core State Standards in the U.S., the difference  between close reading and other reading approaches that schools have promoted in the past, and shows how close reading helps students understand the author's message, his tone or perspectives, and the implications of the author's word choices. Found in EBSCO’s Professional Development Collection offered at no cost to Ohio educators through INFOhio.
