Being a Better Online Reader - The New Yorker

Being a Better Online Reader - The New Yorker | Literature Links | Scoop.it
Certainly, as we turn to online reading, the physiology of the reading process itself shifts; we don’t read the same way online as we do on paper. Anne Mangen, a professor at the National Centre for Reading Education and Research at the University of Stavanger, in Norway, points out that reading is always an interaction between a person and a technology, be it a computer or an e-reader or even a bound book.

How the medium matters in deep digital reading and how we can improve on it.

Maya Angelou on Identity and the Meaning of Life ~ brain pickings

Maya Angelou on Identity and the Meaning of Life ~ brain pickings | Literature Links | Scoop.it

"Life loves the liver of it. You must live and life will be good to you."

by Maria Popova

 

"The light of the world has grown a little dimmer with the loss of the phenomenal Maya Angelou, but her legacy endures as a luminous beacon of strength, courage, and spiritual beauty. Angelou’s timeless wisdom shines with unparalleled light in a 1977 interview by journalist Judith Rich, found in Conversations with Maya Angelou (public library) — the same magnificent tome that gave us the beloved author’s conversation with Bill Moyers on freedom — in which Angelou explores issues of identity and the meaning of life."

Your Brain on Books: 10 Things That Happen to Our Minds When We Read - OEDB.org

Your Brain on Books: 10 Things That Happen to Our Minds When We Read - OEDB.org | Literature Links | Scoop.it

Any book lover can tell you: diving into a great novel is an immersive experience that can make your brain come alive with imagery and emotions and even turn on your senses. It sounds romantic, but there’s real, hard evidence that supports these things happening to your brain when you read books. In reading, we can actually physically change our brain structure, become more empathetic, and even trick our brains into thinking we’ve experienced what we’ve only read in novels.

Is the Bard really so far away from Modern English? One teachers makes links between Shakespeare and modern teen slang insults.

Denise Lombardo's curator insight, April 26, 2013 7:20 PM

Great post with helpful links to resources. Resonates with how I love to introduce kids to Shakespeare. The insults hook them in and give them a chance to play with the language before diving deeper into text and themes. Thanks for the scoop, Louise!

Shakespeare for Kids-Folger Shakespeare Library

Shakespeare for Kids-Folger Shakespeare Library | Literature Links | Scoop.it

Review by Jason Tomaszewski for Education World

 

"Shakespeare can be pretty heavy even for the seasoned academic, so introducing the dramatic pioneer to elementary-aged students is a bold undertaking. Fortunately, the Folger Library pulls it off.

 

"Site offerings like Cool Facts and Who Am I introduce younger students to Shakespeare’s unique literary style while offering fun tidbits about his life and work. Likewise, Shakespearian dialogue allows students to perform in some of the more famous roles.

 

"Students can explore much more here, from reading excerpts of plays to coloring Shakespearian illustrations.

 

"From the academic to the playful and everything in between, the Folger Library’s Shakespeare for Kids is a tremendous resource."
