Don’t talk about me: I’m normal

Don’t talk about me: I’m normal | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

One from the archives, all about behaviour normalisation:

 

"You want me to change, right? Well just like you don’t try to get a baby to run before he can walk, you don’t try to get me to change until you’ve done the basics with me. And the absolute basic I have to ‘get’ before change is even a vague possibility, is that my life as I am currently living it is not ‘normal’. Most of what I have seen and experienced in my life should never be considered anywhere near that..."

The 10 Biggest Ways Emotions Affect Learning | Edudemic

The 10 Biggest Ways Emotions Affect Learning | Edudemic | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it

One of the more popular studies regarding interplay between education and emotion, from MIT, reminds teachers that the feelings impacting learning do not exist as one solid, nebulous mass. Rather, they sit on five different spectrums, each of which factor into their overall performance. Anxiety-Confidence, Boredom-Fascination, Frustration-Euphoria, Dispirited-Encouraged, and Terror-Enchantment all hold sway in their own unique ways, and savvy teachers would do well to recognize their respective roles in shaping the process.

Audiobooks Help Kids Learn: Learning Ally ;access to 75,000 audio textbooks & popular literature titles

Audiobooks Help Kids Learn: Learning Ally ;access to 75,000 audio textbooks & popular literature titles | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
Studies have shown that audiobooks are remarkably effective for many students with reading-based disabilities. The benefits of auditory learning include increased comprehension, better grades, higher confidence and improved self-esteem. The leading resource for these students is Learning Ally, a nonprofit organization that offers the world’s most advanced library of audio textbooks for at-home and in-the-classroom reading.

Audiobook Apps Go Mainstream

Learning Ally offers instant access to more than 75,000 audio textbooks and popular literature titles—nearly everything required for kindergarten through high school and beyond. The audiobooks can be easily loaded to devices that kids use in everyday life—like iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, as well as their laptops.

Educators applaud the independence that new mainstream technology gives to their students. “Kids with learning differences want to be part of the crowd, and they don’t want to be dependent on having mom or dad read their books to them,” says Ruth W., an educational therapist inCalifornia. “Now they can just put their earbuds on, read with Learning Ally’s free audio app on their iPhone, and blend in with their friends—which, especially in the teen years, is a huge consideration.”

Proven Help for Dyslexia

With the help of Learning Ally audiobooks, thousands of young people across theU.S.are enjoying newfound success in the classroom. Dyslexic student Kara S. has come a long way from the “slow reading table” she was forced to sit at in elementary school. She recently graduated from theUniversityofSan Franciscowith a double major in physics and math.

“Parental support could only go so far,” Kara says. “I needed something more.” She credits her membership with Learning Ally as the key to igniting her passion for learning and increasing her confidence as a reader and student.
