Freek Kraak's curator insight, June 11, 6:31 AM
Het gaat er niet om of je al dan niet fysieke materialen hebt (behalve computers etc. dan). Het gaat om toegang en inspiratie.
Die kun je overigens nog steeds ook uit papieren (wat is dat?) boeken halen!
Maar het gaat om de functies van de bibliotheek. Die zijn nuttig en dus moet je de bibliotheek niet afschaffen, maar zich laten ontwikkelen!

What are you doing for your first day's lesson in your literature class?

I might well be starting with this INFORMATIONAL READING article. 

My favorite line? 

"The findings aren’t all that surprising, considering a 2014 Pew Research study that showed millennials — the generation most likely to be using dating apps — are actually more likely to have read a book in the past year than folks from other generations. While the narrative may be that books need saving, it would seem that the pastime is alive as ever."

5 Reasons to Read for Reluctant Readers

5 Reasons to Read for Reluctant Readers | Litteris | Scoop.it
Teachers may offer up a killer classroom library and carve out class time for silent reading, but these two things do not guarantee prolific reading, or even moderate reading from your students. One of my goals when I was teaching high school was this: to have students fall in love with reading while they were in my classroom (or at least like it a little more).

So how do you motivate secondary students in a deeper, lifelong reader way? It's not just about helping a student find that right book, as teachers often see as the ultimate mission, but it's about giving reasons for reading -- and really good ones. Because let's face it, there's plenty of stuff we all have to read that we may not be crazy about, but we know it's good for us. The following motivators are inspired by educator Kelly Gallagher's book, Reading Reasons: Motivational Mini-Lessons for Middle and High School.
