Gutenberg não inventou a imprensa

Gutenberg não inventou a imprensa | Litteris | Scoop.it

O alemão Johannes Gutenberg (c. 1400-1468) não inventou, mas sim “reinventou” a imprensa no século XV. A técnica de imprimir com caracteres móveis é, na verdade, asiática, e muito mais antiga. Tudo começou com a criação do papel, obra de chineses no ano 105 da era cristã. O novo material abriu caminho para uma produção, ainda artesanal, de maior número de livros, que se tornaram práticos para manusear e muito mais baratos.

Natalie Goldberg: “I Don’t Believe in Writer’s Block” | Talking Writing

Natalie Goldberg: “I Don’t Believe in Writer’s Block” | Talking Writing | Litteris | Scoop.it

Some people embrace Natalie Goldberg’s Zen approach to writing; others resist it. But in all cases, she urges writers to dive deep. Author of the bestselling guides Writing Down the Bones (1986) and Wild Mind (1990), Goldberg peppers her conversation with Buddhist references like “sitting with my own mind.”

 

She speaks of the need to observe your “passing thoughts” in order to get to wild mind: the place within yourself that’s devoid of self-censorship.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, August 20, 1:55 PM

I discovered Natalie Goldberg when I was teaching middle school writer's workshop (back before the turn of the century).


Her mindful methods worked then. They will work now if they fit your vision of teaching writing. 


Think about it.

Spritz - An Amazing Reading Tool

Spritz - An Amazing Reading Tool | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Spritz’s mission is to change the way people read and make communication faster, easier, and more effective."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 17, 9:09 PM

Spritz is a digital tool that allows you to read one word at a time and you can set the speed. You read the "text one word at a time in our “redicle,” a special visual frame we designed for reading."

Words can be read starting at 100 words per minute up to 1000 words per minute.
Spritz will work English, Spanish, French, German, Russian and Korean. More languages will be added.

This tool is worth looking at because it may help some students who struggle with reading. The text has to be accessible online and does work on many platforms. For more information head over to the website.

Outlander reforça o sucesso das adaptações literárias para TV | Litera Pop | Litteris | Scoop.it
Adaptada dos livros de Diana Gabaldon, a série de TV produzida pelo canal Starz já pode ser vista como um sucesso, inclusive tendo garantida a sua segunda temporada. A trama que apresenta Claire, que de forma fantástica regride na história encontrando uma Escócia antiga, cheia de conflitos e batalhas, a adaptação é mais uma prova que corrobora a capacidade quase interminável com que a literatura é capaz de fornecer conteúdo para outros meios

Jane Austen was an amazing writer and woman for her time. She penned a total of six novels, all of which are still studied in classrooms to this day.

While not a famous name in her own time, her works made her a literary celebrity in the 19th Century, a status she maintains today. Have a look below at some things you may now know about this great author.
