The morphology and vocabulary in this article really explain what processes are needed for readers and how to effectively teach them vocabulary.This article will prove helpful with my tutoring assignment and I love the name vocabulogic.

I am very interested in the topic of disciplinary literacy and I've been looking into it a lot lately. The author has a good point when she discusses the issue that literacy teachers don't have enough content knowledge and content teachers don't have enough literacy knowledge to integrate the two effectively. We need to find a way to bring these two areas of expertise together. Thanks for posting this!

This article reminds me of something another student just posted in one of my other courses; she stated that before the third grade our students are "learning to read" but in third grade and after, our students are "reading to learn". I really latched onto this thought because all the skills we teach our students when we teach them to read are not always helpful when our students are trying to decode a mathematics problem. It is like learning a foreign language and surely they will need new reading tools to help them understand this discipline. I can see disciplinary literacy becoming the next piece of preparing all-around teachers. Sure we should know basic reading strategies for our struggling readers, however adding to our teacher tool belt is Never a bad idea!!! :)

This is a new, interesting research tool.It is called Small Demons. It is an index that links books, films, and other forms of media
based on topics such as characters, places, and objects. For example, you
could search across many works to see how often fictional characters drove
a certain model of car, or visited a certain city.

Amazing how far technology has advanced.This tool could be used for students to make other connections to literature to what they are reading.As Beers remarks in chapter 10 the more students read the better their fluency will improve and the more connections students make to the reading their comprehension will also improve.

Aggregate, Curate and Create Your Own Textbook | Powerful Learning Practice | Foundations of Literacy for Secondary Educators | Scoop.it

Here is a powerful quote to help you understand the process of curation.

 

"CURATION

While aggregation can be seen just as collecting websites, the process of curation involves a deeper analysis of the aggregated sites to select the ones that have the most relevant information for a particular topic, just like a museum curator summarizes and edits intricate subjects into easily consumable and enjoyable exhibits."

I found this to be an interesting research project. I am particularly interested in why the attitudes of the boys increased, while the girls' did not. I recently also read an article on how well we remember what we read when using eReaders. Here it is in case you'd like to check it out: http://healthland.time.com/2012/03/14/do-e-books-impair-memory/

This is an interesting study, as is the article you post, Liz. I'm currently working on an ereader study from a different perspective so it is interesting to read other insights and results. ~LS

I'm glad you're doing research on eReaders. I always find it interesting to see how they impact the reading process. For myself, I can only read on them for pleasure (at this point). I still want an actual book in my hand for things like my classes. I find that I comprehend and retain academic information better that way.
