Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 16, 8:18 PM

If you work with younger students and you have access to digital devices that access the Internet head over to National Geographic Young Explorer. You will find issues from October 2009 through April 2014. The great thing about these magazines is that the student may have the text read to them, and each word is highlighted as it is read. The site also states that it continues to add new magazines during the school year, so more should be coming soon.

Along with the Listen and Read feature, there are two Teacher Guides for each issue that you may print out. One guide is for Kindergarten and the other is for first grade. The guides include lesson plans, discussion questions, ready-to-copy worksheets and more." There is also a projectable issue available that you may use to present the information to your class as a whole.

This is a great resource to introduce students to science and to informational text (as required by Common Core). For teachers of young students who may not have a science background this website will provide you with a wealth of resources. Have fun sharing this with students and their families.

'What We See When We Read' by Peter Mendelsund

 

“What We See When We Read,” itself a work of conceptual design, unfolds the author’s ideas about what makes reading a creative, visual act all its own on pages — some packed with text, others just a line or two — that incorporate sketches, clip art, images of classic book covers and more. It’s less a scholarly manifesto (such as, say, James Woods’s “How Fiction Works” or the Adler-Van Doren classic “How to Read a Book”) than it is a conversation piece, created to entice repeated thumb-throughs.

3 Simple Tools to Support the CCSS Academic Vocabulary Shift | AdLit | Scoop.it

The Common Core identifies six instructional shifts needed to effectively implement the standards in ELA/Literacy.  Shift 6 suggests an instructional change in the teaching of Academic Vocabulary. While there are many specific vocabulary standards in the K-12 Language strand, it’s helpful and important to look at Academic Vocabulary from the big picture view known as Shift 6.

Powerpoint has two approaches for close reading.  I love the way the second was initially designed for artwork.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, August 16, 3:23 PM

Close reading is nothing new. As a matter of fact, close reading began with New Criticism of the 1950s. Close reading was the not the name of the approach readers were taught by which to approach text; that nomenclature has come upon us since the publication and adoption of the Common Core. If you were a student of English in the 60s through the late 70s and early 80s, you were probably doing close reading because that was how teachers of the era were taught to break down texts in the process of analysis. Seems new to many, but that is only because reading made a U-turn somewhere in the 1980s towards whole language and responsive reading and away from analytical, academic reading.

Reading increases empathy, a high demand skil

Reading increases empathy, a high demand skil | AdLit | Scoop.it

Education is broadening its focus from main academics to include emotional and social skills. Empathy is a skill that is increasingly sought after, not just in classrooms, but also in professional spaces.

 

But how does one learn empathy?
Read. Read more.

 

Research shows that reading literature helps readers understand characters, their thoughts, motivations, and feelings.

 

Readers also predict what will happen next to characters, and link actions to consequences. These skills translate to the real world, where readers can understand the motivations and feelings of people they interact with, as well as predict what they may do next.

 

Why are employers emphasizing empathy?

I used novel studies and we explored the interactions, the conflicts between characters i.e. Philip and Timothy in The Cay. Students enjoyed the books and found themselves identifying in various ways with the characters as they matured.
