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.

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.
