Growing literacy through Share A Story contest

Growing literacy through Share A Story contest | English Language Learners in the Classroom | Scoop.it
The second annual "Share A Story" contest sponsored by The Courier-Journal celebrated four winning young authors and resulted in 12,000 donated books distributed to participants at five local libraries Saturday to promote literacy in Louisville.

The book drive that began Sept. 1 culminated in events held Saturday morning at four branches of the Louisville Free Public Library and at the Jeffersonville, Indiana library. The literacy campaign took place on "Make A Difference Day," the "largest national day of community service," according to USA WEEKEND magazine, which founded the event more than two decades ago.

Illiteracy matters in Kentucky, where an estimated 60 percent of children enter grade school lacking sufficient reading skills, Courier-Journal publisher Wes Jackson said in an interview. Jackson read to children and celebrated with two of the four contest winners and 130 children and their parents and caregivers at the Louisville Free Public Library's newly opened branch at 9725 Dixie Highway. Winning stories will be published by The Courier-Journal, he added.

Check for discrimination of similar sounding words.  Provide intense, motivating, and frequent instruction.  Build vocabulary from an early age.  Practice listening accuracy,  auditory sequencing, and phonological memory.  Try Fast ForWord program to building skills for reading.

Denver Leigh Watson, M.Ed, LDTC's curator insight, October 28, 10:10 PM

I love info-graphics!  Harnessing knowledge and embracing the differences regarding how our brain functions in learning is the key to becoming a great teacher.  We can empower our teachers by providing them facts and insight on how to reach all of their students.

Remembering author, teacher and critic Judith Kitchen | English Language Learners in the Classroom | Scoop.it
I only met Judith Kitchen once. It’s my loss. Kitchen, who died last week at 73 of cancer, was a rare spirit, both on the page and in the world. Teacher, essayist, critic, she and her husband and partner Stan Rubin ran the Rainier Writing Workshop at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Wash., where I spent a couple of days last year visiting.

U.S. Hispanic and Asian populations growing, but for different reasons

Seth Dixon's curator insight, June 27, 10:15 AM

It is often noted that the cultural composition of the United States is undergoing a shift, referred to by some as the "Browning of America."  The story of Asian and Hispanic growth in the United States are occurring simultaneously, which makes many assume that they are growing for the same reasons.  The data clearly shows that this is not the case.

Giselle Figueroa's curator insight, September 26, 9:46 PM

A very interesting fact, because I thought that Hispanic race had grown rather than Asian race in the last few years but I see that not. Another thing that caught my attention was that the Hispanic  population has  growth due to the Hispanic  birth here in U.S and not because they immigrate to U.S. But in the case of the growth of the Asian population, is because they immigrate. I didn't know that, now I am more  informed.
