Books should be a pleasure in themselves, not merely a prompt for study.

SCIS's curator insight, December 12, 2012 7:26 PM

'By mining and scouring books for issues and focusing on matters of suitability rather than substance, we in fact fail to teach young people how to read and what reading is for and the ways literature can enlighten, inspire and above all give pleasure.'

Plenty of reading material here in the form of diverse genres and subjects. Books can be read online, downloaded in several formats and even borrowed for a couple of weeks.

'Books Light Up Our World' is the theme for Children's Book Week 2015 so I thought I'd share an article by Courtney Tuckett in this month's Haven Magazine. In the piece I share some ideas on how Reading and Creative Writing can light up our world.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, March 9, 4:13 PM

From the website: The ICDL Foundation's goal is to build a collection of books that represents outstanding historical and contemporary books from throughout the world.  Ultimately, the Foundation aspires to have every culture and language represented so that every child can know and appreciate the riches of children's literature from the world community.

I have not spent a ton of time playing around with this site but it looks good at first glance. Check it out!

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, March 10, 2:54 PM

A great resource on the Internet, I remember when it began and they accepted my help as a translator. Now they have grown and keep on getting better and better. The best part: it's free for all, as long as you have an internet connection.

Keep up the good work ICDL!!!!

Sharrock's curator insight, March 5, 11:59 AM

This is a cool idea. 

Kobe Davis's curator insight, April 5, 8:33 PM

This article explains the introduction of a FIS book club in British schools. This website encourages students to read through creation of online book reviews. Students are filmed talking about books they have read and critiquing their characters and plot lines.

 

This way of learning focuses on student learning where “students are active rather than passive recipients of knowledge” (Commander, Ward & Zabrucky, 2012, p. 395) and encourages them to “think more deeply about learning” (Commander, Ward & Zabrucky, 2012, p. 398).

 

I would use this technology in stages 1-3 with books that I have selected as well as books that the student has chosen. Students would be instructed to film their book reviews in pairs and then present these videos to the class. The class would then critically analyse the student’s presentation and perhaps take a vote whether or not they would like to read that book. This would allow students to demonstrate their proficiency in Talking and Listening. It would also allow me as a teacher to be aware of the types of books the students would be interested in.
