Read-Alouds to Launch Reader’s Workshop | Scholastic.com

Read-Alouds to Launch Reader’s Workshop | Scholastic.com | Multicultural Children's Literature | Scoop.it
During the first few weeks of reader’s workshop, the focus is necessarily on introducing routines, building stamina, and exploring the classroom library. At the same time, I need to immerse my students in the culture of reading by getting lost in good books together. There isn’t a moment to waste in initiating my students into our reading cult! How do I accomplish both goals at the same time? I use picture books that celebrate reading as a springboard into our discussions about reader’s workshop routines and expectations. Read on for my favorite picture books about reading and how I use them to launch our reader’s workshop.

Reading Literature on Screen: A Price for Convenience?

Reading Literature on Screen: A Price for Convenience? | Multicultural Children's Literature | Scoop.it
A forthcoming paper by researchers in France and Norway suggests that there may be some cognitive drawbacks to reading even short works of literature on a screen.
Claudia M. Reder's insight:

Why is it that emotional responses were similar, as were character, setting and plot details, but kindle readers scored much lower on putting the plot points in correct order.  Researchers want to know why there was a difference.

Reading increases empathy, a high demand skil

Reading increases empathy, a high demand skil | Multicultural Children's Literature | Scoop.it

Education is broadening its focus from main academics to include emotional and social skills. Empathy is a skill that is increasingly sought after, not just in classrooms, but also in professional spaces.


But how does one learn empathy?
Read. Read more.


Research shows that reading literature helps readers understand characters, their thoughts, motivations, and feelings.

 

Readers also predict what will happen next to characters, and link actions to consequences. These skills translate to the real world, where readers can understand the motivations and feelings of people they interact with, as well as predict what they may do next.

 

Why are employers emphasizing empathy?
