Reading Like a Historian: Overview

Reading Like a Historian: Overview | AdLit | Scoop.it
Reading Like A Historian curriculum is a unique and effective way to teach High School History. By turning students into history investigators, teachers help them develop critical thinking skills and increase student engagement.
Lynnette Van Dyke's insight:

Questions to Consider

How does using an inquiry approach increase engagement?Professor Wineburg says this curriculum "turns history into a series of questions instead of a series of answers."

What effect does this have?

How can students apply their "historian skills" to other contexts?

Mississippi lawmaker pushes for dyslexia awareness @lawrecneschool @cdcowen @ryan_masa | AdLit | Scoop.it
Rep. Steven Palazzo and his wife, Lisa, recognized about three years ago that their youngest son, Bennett, was struggling with reading so they hired tutors, but nothing seemed to work.

They had the fourth-grader tested recently and learned he had dyslexia, a learning disability that involves difficulty learning to read.

“When he realized he wasn’t slow or dumb, his attitude changed. He knows he’s smart and knows there’s a way out,” said Palazzo, a Republican representing Mississippi’s 4th District. “I just wish we could have caught this when he was in first or second grade.’’

Palazzo and Republican Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana are on a mission to raise awareness about dyslexia. Cassidy’s daughter, Kate, also is dyslexic.

37 Ways to Help Kids Learn to Love Reading

37 Ways to Help Kids Learn to Love Reading | AdLit | Scoop.it

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, said Jojen. The man who never reads lives only one.”


― George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons


These are powerful words, and they speak to the power of reading to open doors to empathy, adventure, and learning. A love of reading doesn't happen automatically though. It needs to be nurtured and guided until it flourishes into a well-read, well-rounded human being.

 

That's why we put together a presentation of some of our favorite ways to help kids learn to love reading, gathered from the contributions of Edutopia's educators and parents.
