15 Mistakes New Teachers Make (and what I learned making them) - A.J. Juliani | Learning  and Libraries | Scoop.it
I’ve had the pleasure of working with a lot of new teachers the past three years, and I’ve seen many of the same mistakes I made during my first year teaching repeated over and over. Now, this isn’t to say that I thought teaching was extremely difficult during my first year (I actually loved it …

The Best Children’s Books and Picture-Books of 2014

The Best Children’s Books and Picture-Books of 2014 | Learning  and Libraries | Scoop.it

Indeed, books that bewitch young hearts and tickle young minds aren’t “children’s books” but simply great books — hearts that beat in the chest of another, even if that chest is slightly smaller.

This is certainly the case with the most intelligent and imaginative “children’s” and picture-books published this year. (Because the best children’s books provide, as Tolkien believed, perennial delight, step into the time machine and revisit previous selections for 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.)

Jennifer Cowley's curator insight, November 18, 2014 7:43 PM

These are wonderful reviews which would also make great exemplars of reviews of visual texts. Visual literacy is increasingly important in newer English curricula, but can be hard to work into courses.  Check your picture book collection and collaborate with your English department to create a short, discrete visual literacy/review assignment they could work between units.

This blog is quite thought provoking. What is the educational gap between children whose parents are digitally literate versus those whose parents barely even own a smart phone? Is our education able to cope with both  set of students?
