37 Ways to Help Kids Learn to Love Reading

37 Ways to Help Kids Learn to Love Reading | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | 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.

Dale Dougherty, Father of the Maker movement talks about breaking rules, erasers & building a learning culture (EdSurge News) | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

by Betsy Corcoran


"Making represents the kind of informal learning that happens mostly outside of school. Part of me didn't want to see it in school because it would lose its magic if it was to become defined as curriculum. I want making to flourish as something we do because we discover it and love to do it -- not because we are forced to do it. I've also come to think that rather than having making fit into school, we should transform our schools so that this kind of informal learning is given greater emphasis and so-called formal learning de-emphasized. 

"Certainly, I would like more and more young people to have the opportunity to become makers, and having makerspaces in schools and library seems like the best way to reach more of them. I've been excited by the progress I'm seeing. I have to say that making is the only thing in education that is getting adopted as the result of grassroots initiatives. It's bottom-up, not top-down. 

"I believe that one of the lasting impacts of the maker movement is to transform our education system, replacing a standardized curriculum and testing with learn-by-doing experiential learning. Kids will lead the way, saying "I don't learn the way they are teaching." That's how the next generation will learn that they have the freedom to become productive and creative."

Curate and Create Learning Resources


If we want to have students seek out other information from sources other than the teacher, then we must make sure those resources are available. Many teachers using the flipped classroom approach already have created or found these kinds of resources. However, think broadly about the word resource.


People are resources, texts are resources, and community organizations are resources -- to name just a few categories. We have to be comfortable not always knowing the answer, and instead suggesting we find the answer together through the vast amount of learning resources that we have at our disposal.


Try curating these resources before, during, and after a unit. Work with students as well to create a culture where the answers are everywhere.

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, January 16, 3:13 PM

I agree that most of the interview question goals are to find out:

 

1.  Can you do the job/are you within our salary range

2.  Are you professional

3.  Are you are the right for the department and organizational culture

 

After you read the article, do you have other interview questions you wondered why that question was asked?

 

If so, we would love to hear from you!

---If you have any questions, comments, or best practices about careers or leadership…I am on it!  My goal is to share thoughts, tools, and inspriation to help you leverage your strengths, and help you achieve your goals!  I am grateful and so fortuante to travel the world as a speaker and coach.  I get to work with some of the best in class organizations, and I love to pass along lessons I learn from you to others.

 

Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

Would you like to be happier? Nobody says no to that question, which is why the massive self-help industry continues to flourish—but is happiness really the goal we should be striving for?

‘I’d like to think about happiness as less of being that sort of over-caffeinated, extremely jolly, big smiley face approach to life, which actually in many cases is really unrealistic, and much more about having a meaningful, fulfilled life in which you are connected to your sense of purpose, your values, connected to who you are,’ says Anthony Grant, director of the Coaching Psychology Unit at the University of Sydney.

‘That certainly doesn’t exclude bad times in your life. So I like to think of happiness as really the life well lived.’
