How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading | Reading and Writting | Scoop.it

"If you’re not familiar with Adler and Van Doren’s How To Read A Book, it is worth, well, reading.

As you might’ve guessed, these have less to do with decoding, and more to do with comprehension. Actually, more to do with the perspective you approach your reading with."

Well it looks like I've been reading books wrong all my life.

Hmm letting kids in grades K-8 read online? Interesting idea. If they can use iPads at home then there should be no stopping them from reading on a computer at school.

Does social media affect the youth's reading and writing skills? - The New Age Online

Does social media affect the youth's reading and writing skills?
Khalid Hart's insight:

I believe that social media does somewhat hinder a person's reading and writing skills. The reason why is because everything is abbreviated or just simply written incorrectly online. After a while of seeing," lol, lmao, h8, luv" and so on. A teen may often forget words and their meaning.

Adrianna Castelo's curator insight, February 12, 2014 9:56 PM

This interested me because I would've thought that the reading and writing would've affected the skills of the youth. Although they are reading a lot more online we don't really know the content of what they're reading and whatever that may be may be affecting them due to poor slang and grammar used in social media.

Teaching Informational Text with Magazines http://t.co/F9d7yUG6nu #ccchat #edchat

Khalid Hart's insight:

I remember the good ole' days when I had to get a magazine just to cut out pictures.  But this is a win-win situation.  It not only is addition way of teaching in the class room but it also promotes reading outside of class. I mean magazines don't just exist in classrooms right?

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, March 18, 2014 8:17 AM

I think most teachers have considered using magazines in their classrooms for informational text, but as the blog states, the challenge is finding enough copies for a classroom set. Here are some of the author's ideas on "How to Obtain Monthly Magazines for Your Classroom"
Where can you get these magazines? Here are a few ideas:

Magazine subscriptions are available through Amazon.com, so you can now create a DonorsChoose proposal for a variety of children's magazines. The prices range between $15 and $33 per subscription, so you could request up to 10 different magazines and keep your proposal under $400. Most proposals under $400 are quickly funded.

You can ask parents to send in old issues of children's magazines, but make it clear that the magazines must be kid-friendly and are subject to your approval before they can be read in class.Establish a "Classroom Magazine Fund" and ask parents to donate money to help you purchase classroom magazine subscriptions. You can customize and send the letter shown above.Ask parents to donate a magazine subscription to the classroom. See customizable letter above for sample wording.Some airline frequent flyer programs will let you use frequent flyer miles to purchase magazines. Delta's program allows you to purchase Sports Illustrated for Kids with points, and I'm going to be using my points to give away at least one subscription to that magazine. See details below.
