This afternoon, we had a great practical discussion with International Reading Association President-elect Maureen McLaughlin and University of Chicago literacy and curriculum specialist Timothy Shanahan. The conversation touched on everything from text complexity and English-language learners to comprehension for the youngest students. For those interested in all things common core, check out the archived transcript.

Highlighting the importance of literacy

Highlighting the importance of literacy | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Saturday 8 September 2012 was International Literacy Day, a global awareness day that aims to highlight the importance of literacy to individuals, communities and societies. The theme adopted this year was Literacy and Peace, to demonstrate the multiple uses and value that literacy brings to people as it provides individuals with the skills to understand the world, to participate in democratic processes and to have a voice.
"Literacy is one of the main building blocks of learning," says Susan du Plessis, director of educational programs at Edublox, a South African organisation that offers classes and programmes that improve reading and learning skills. "An individual that struggles to read will struggle to learn and this difficulty will be carried with them through their school years and into later life. For this reason, the company is very supportive of International Literacy Day, as we recognise the critical role that literacy plays in people's lives and we have seen first-hand the change that can occur in people's lives, once they are able to read and comprehend what they have read successfully."

According to UNESCO's (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) 'Global Monitoring Report on Education for All (2006)', South and West Asia has the lowest regional adult literacy rate (58.6%), followed by sub-Saharan Africa (59.7%). Some 775 million adults worldwide lack minimum literacy skills; one in five adults is still not literate and two-thirds of them are women. It seems that literacy for all - children, youth and adults - is still an unaccomplished goal and an ever-moving target.

Shanahan on Literacy: Who's Right on Text Complexity?

Shanahan on Literacy: Who's Right on Text Complexity? | college and career ready | Scoop.it

It seems that there is a lot of conflicting information coming out about accuracy and complex text. In the April edition of The Reading Teacher, Richard Allington wrote an article pertaining to struggling readers. In this article he says that there are studies showing the benefits to teaching children using text where their accuracy is high. Our district just raised the running record accuracy rate expectation to 95-98% accuracy based on the current research. Yet, your blog postings pull in the opposite direction. How do teachers know what is right and what is wrong? After all, teachers want to do what is best and most effective towards student learning.

Why we need more visual texts in our teaching and learning

Why we need more visual texts in our teaching and learning | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Found this fantastic infographic touting the success of infographics. Reading it (or more correctly, viewing it) immediately focused my thoughts on the use of visual texts in classrooms today.

 

Unlike other infographics I link to on Mr G Online, I’m not going to discuss the specific points presented – that would be contradictory to the message of the infographic. I’ll let you get your own meaning from it. However, I am going to reflect on how it made me consider the use of visual texts in education.

really? more of these non-classical pedagogical methods?

Audrey's curator insight, August 29, 2013 11:53 AM

You can absorb the visual faster and make sense of it in a holistic way; particularly if you spend time engaging with the information from different physical points of view. The information is embedded in the memory because the individual is encouraged to project their own meaning.  Having been directed to view educational materials, the learner can them be asked questions to test their understanding. 

 

Visual learning is necessary from a young age and is what home school sources learning is all about.

An interesting read for teachers of reading who find themselves "pounding tables" during faculty and department meetings devoted to the Common Core Standards. 

 

When we find ourselved either literally or metaphorically table pounding about the pros or cons associated with the Common Core Standards, we might find ourselves so locked into our position that we might have great difficulty identifying the elements of the opposing argument that are worth considering and conceding as having merit not particularly well addressed by our own positions.

 

The first task in taking a thoughtful position is to inform ourselves regarding the
