Reading and Gender: A Brief Guided Tour of my MA Dissertation ~ things mean a lot

Reading and Gender: A Brief Guided Tour of my MA Dissertation ~ things mean a lot | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"The relationship between gender and reading is a topic that interests me greatly, but I found many of these conversations extremely frustrating because they never seemed to move beyond gender essentialism. The assumptions behind most of them were that boys and girls “naturally” have completely different interests; that “boys” and “girls” are homogeneous categories and that gender trumps any other factors such as socioeconomic background, ethnicity or sexual orientation (not to mention, you know, personality); and that what’s scaring teen boys away from reading..."

Patterns and Punctuation

Patterns and Punctuation | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

As teacher Elizabeth Schlessman watched her upper elementary students learn about mosses by close observation and inquiry, she wondered: Could you do the same when studying punctuation? Getting beyond the stultifying application of rules, she guided her students to see the verbal patterns into which punctuation fits.

Marie Schoeman's curator insight, March 13, 2013 2:41 PM

As the South African Department of Basic Education is introducing the concept of curriculum differentiation as an essential component of the successful delivery of the National Curriculum Statement, advice from experts such as Carol Tomlinson is very valuable.

Dr. Seuss Went to War

Dr. Seuss Went to War | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"Before his career as a beloved children's author, Dr. Seuss was a political cartoonist. These 'fake' titles capture an allegorical reading of Dr. Seuss that at time is not so subtle (The Butter Battle Book and the Lorax are the most obvious IMHO).  THis link takes you to the Special Collections of UCSD with houses the archive on Dr. Seuss' political cartoons. "

 

This is amazing news to me. -JL

Blue - Interview with Pat Grant

Blue - Interview with Pat Grant | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"If the sentiment [of 'Blue'] sounds uncomfortably familiar, it’s because the unfolding story of the fictional Bolton is also the story of Australia, particularly Australia’s complex relationship with newcomers to our shores. The theme has been percolating in the mind of artist Pat Grant since he witnessed the Cronulla race riots on December 4, 2005.

Five hundred new fairytales discovered in Germany | the guardian

Five hundred new fairytales discovered in Germany | the guardian | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

A whole new world of magic animals, brave young princes and evil witches has come to light with the discovery of 500 new fairytales, which were locked away in an archive in Regensburg, Germany for over 150 years. The tales are part of a collection of myths, legends and fairytales, gathered by the local historian Franz Xaver von Schönwerth (1810–1886) in the Bavarian region of Oberpfalz at about the same time as the Grimm brothers were collecting the fairytales that have since charmed adults and children around the world.
