Raúl Luna's curator insight, February 24, 2014 1:27 PM

¿Cómo se puede favorecer el aprendizaje de la escritura? ¿Qué prácticas de escritura son relevantes dentro del sistema escolar? ¿Qué aspectos son los decisivos para hacer de alumnos y alumnas escritores competentes? ¿Qué quiere decir hoy en día el término "escribir"? ¿Qué aspectos deben evaluarse en el aprendizaje de la escritura? ¿Qué nuevas prácticas letradas se están generando en la sociedad digital actual? ¿Qué ayuda nos pueden proporcionar la Red y las herramientas digitales para favorecer los procesos de escritura?


Preguntas que se plantean las tres componentes del colectivo Bloggeando (Adela Fernández, Irene González y Mª del Mar Pérez) y que dan lugar al curso Escribir en línea cuyos materiales están disponibles con licencia CC By-Nc-Sa y de los cuales forma parte la presentación que muestra este scoop.


También tienes un artículo publicado en Educ@contic que presenta y sintetiza los contenidos de las cinco sesiones que constituyeron el curso presencial. 


Muy recomendable.

Rewriting a Sentence - a few tips

Here’s a little writing clinic today, on the art of rewriting a sentence. Writing is, of course, not just about what you say, but how you say it. Here I’ll give you a few examples of how you can rewrite a sentence (sometimes into more than one sentence ...). This is not, of course, to say how one is better than the other, because there will be a time and a place for most sentences. As a base let’s try this one –
Vincent ran quickly down the street away from the men who were running after him. It’s not a bad sentence, but it’s a little boring and doesn’t say much despite using quite a lot of words.

13 Clichés You Shouldn't Be Caught Dead Using

13 Clichés You Shouldn't Be Caught Dead Using | Litteris | Scoop.it
Clichés are the worst. Aside from being indicative of lazy speaking and lazy writing, they are rarely used correctly, and even when they are, they rarely make sense.

Via GoogleLitTrips Reading List

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, August 27, 2013 3:15 PM

I've always had mixed feelings about this particularly common "English Teachery" advise. Not because I don't agree that metaphor can become cliché, but because for many students, metaphor at the clichè level is one of the earliest expressions of "intrinsic appreciation" of metaphor and descriptive writing. 

 

But rather than phrase the advise in a way that sounds more like, "What you did is bad writing" I would prefer to recognize the use of clichès as more of an admirable beginning of a transition from merely a literal expression towards a more image driven "show don't tell" expression.

 

No. They're not good metaphors because they are clichès. But, they may be indicators of a growing awareness of the power of imagery in writing. 

 

I think it gets down to how we communicate to students. If their first impression of 'how" we respond to the use of clichès is, "My teacher didn't like it when I tried to use metaphors" then we may be perceived as having been disappointed. And, students may jump to the discouraging conclusion, false as it may be, that if they can't come of with a metaphor that has never been used before, they will be criticized for using previously used metaphors.

 

Yet, if we can manage to remember that the use of metaphor, whether clichè or not, may actually be a relatively "fresh concept" for many students and then craft our response to recognize the use of metaphor as a good thing. And, perhaps, leaving the discussion about the downside of using metaphors that are used too frequently for a secondary opportunity to write even better metaphors, Kids who might have been discouraged by our hauling out the over-used "Clichès are bad" rubber stamp we might intrigue students and encourage them to continue to evolve their appreciation for figurative language.

 

But OK. I'll confess. this article isn't really about using clichès so much as it is about what makes the worst of them so bad. Those on the list are bad not only because they're overused, but also because they are for the most part outdated. They lack the real power of metaphor because they no longer bring to mind a mental image that makes any sense any more (if they ever did).

 

I would agree that we ought to avoid clichès that have lost the power to create an image we can relate to. I would agree that other clichès may still work, but really aren't all that interesting. I might point out to students that these sorts of clichès bare a striking similarity to bygone slang their parents may still use. And, I might even attempt to exemplify the "better metaphors" as being sort of like hearing a great joke for the first time compared to having someone run up to them and telling a joke he or she thinks is hilarious, yet having already heard the joke "a million times before" it just isn't all that interesting anymore.

 

So my last thought...

 

What do you think of the use of "shouldn't get caught dead using" being used in the headline for this article?
