From Classics to Graphics: 6 Literary Masterpieces Turned Into Graphic Novels - Mental Floss

From Classics to Graphics: 6 Literary Masterpieces Turned Into Graphic Novels - Mental Floss | iHEARTbooks | Scoop.it

“Abridging classic novels for younger readers is nothing new. But in recent years, classic literature has been graphic novel-ized, making it more accessible for readers young and old while preserving the plot, themes, and sometimes even the author’s voice. English class will never be the same, thanks to these classics gone graphic.”

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: media specialists are leading the way as tech superheroes

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: media specialists are leading the way as tech superheroes | iHEARTbooks | Scoop.it

Meet the latest tech superheroes: school librarians. According to School Library Journal’s 2012 School Technology Survey, media specialists are leading the charge to bring new media, mobile devices, social apps, and web-based technologies into our nation’s classrooms.

 

So far, the results have been pretty impressive: 87 percent of school librarians report that they’re in charge of their library’s technology, with 60 percent adding that they’ve also introduced it into the classroom. Furthermore, 44 percent now serve on their school’s tech team, and in these budget-troubled times, when many library positions are on the line, that role may mean increased job security. In fact, 55 percent of the elementary, middle, and high school librarians that responded to our survey say that their tech skills have increased their value in administrators’ eyes.

After a rocky start, the graphic novel Romeo and Juliet has finally helped some of my struggling readers. At first the students complained that it was hard to follow the cartoons and dialogue.

Graphic novels as the 21st century comic book

Graphic novels as the 21st century comic book | iHEARTbooks | Scoop.it

Some good resources and activities linking to the Australian Curriculum: English. Would like to have seen more focus on graphic novels as sophisticated and complex texts. Would also challenge the claim that the first comic book was Superman in 1938. Other than that, thumbs up to the ABC for this new website.

Books Trim the Brain

Books Trim the Brain | iHEARTbooks | Scoop.it

Books and educational toys can make a child smarter, but they also influence how the brain grows, according to new research presented here on Sunday at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience. The findings point to a "sensitive period" early in life during which the developing brain is strongly influenced by environmental factors.
