Graphic organizers can be limiting and even debilitating. On the other hand, if we never help students see the wide array of means by which we can make our thinking visible, will they know how to do just that? I'm not sure. My grandson, a kindergarten student, does a great job of drawing and diagramming his thoughts, but for me to understand those drawings he needs to provide an explanation. And so, what we may need to do is share the organizers as visual aids and then let kids decide how they want to visually organize their thoughts in meaningful, though divergent ways.

Sharon Bakar's curator insight, October 16, 2013 5:14 AM

"Well-meaning adults can easily destroy a child's love of reading: stop them reading what they enjoy, or give them worthy-but-dull books that you like, the 21st-century equivalents of Victorian "improving" literature. You'll wind up with a generation convinced that reading is uncool and worse, unpleasant. ... We need our children to get onto the reading ladder: anything that they enjoy reading will move them up, rung by rung, into literacy."

Gaiman on why reading is important and the role of libraries.

Khalid Hart's curator insight, March 18, 2014 1:51 AM

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.

I've been pushing teachers to use speaking vans listening skills in providing students the opportunities to practice deep application of the reading standards. Obviously, writing is a good way to demonstrate deep, rich analytic reading. But speaking is equally as valid though tougher to evaluate....words are lost in the billowing air. But...they can act as rehearsals for later writing.
