Most people, when asked, can recount an experience that undermined their confidence in their own learning. Negative comments when we are young can have a very long-term effect upon our view of ourselves as bright, capable learners. However, self-confidence has a major impact upon our ability to perform well.

What kind of message were you given about your abilities to study when you were at school or college?

Books for Boys that Aren't “Books for Boys” | The Hub | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it

"I realized it doesn’t matter if a book is “for” a guy or a girl; the gender of the intended audience tends to get all mixed up when you factor in the power of a good story. Boys like stories; girls like stories. Readers in general like stories. We need to forget what we think about boys and reading and find them the stories they want."

Judith Morais's curator insight, March 27, 12:13 AM

There's a good range of books here that, unlike some ebooks I've used, fill up the whole screen so that we can use it for whole class work easily. Unfortunately, the videos don't have the words from the books. There is a link to purchase the books though, and that may be worth it, considering how good the videos are.

Infographics are a great way of encouraging deeper learning. They allow students to make links, research, synthesize knowledge and be creative among other things.

Books that teens won't hate: Reaching reluctant readers

Books that teens won't hate: Reaching reluctant readers | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it
Locker Combinations is a Book Case feature by BookPage contributor and young adult (YA) literature expert Jill Ratzan.

"Avid readers can easily be boggled at best—and horrified at worst—by teens who seem completely uninterested in reading. As adults who love the written word, we want the teens in our lives to love it too. So how can we reach out to teens who don't like to read?"

Continued reading throughout the school years is vital for developing fluency, comprehension and vocabulary.
Tammy Bennecke's insight:

Reading is a crucial skill for continued school success. Unfortunately, many kids begin to lose interest in reading as they become older. Some parents assume that since their child has already learnedhow to read, daily reading is unimportant. However, being able to read does not automatically assumefull literacy. Continued reading throughout the school years is vital for developing fluency, comprehension and vocabulary.

10 Trends in Hybrid Homeschooling

10 Trends in Hybrid Homeschooling | Red Apple Reading Literacy and Education | Scoop.it

Homeschooling has been around for most of recorded history, but hybrid homeschooling is a fairly new phenomenon. For hybrid homeschoolers, education takes on multiple dimensions, combining elements of both homeschooling and traditional schooling to take advantage of the best aspects of both. That means many hybrid homeschooling families study at home, with tutors, take classes with certified teachers, and even pursue outside educational activities to complete their curriculum. It’s a fun and enriching approach to education that is picking up steam, and we’ve noted several telling trends that say a lot about where hybrid homeschooling is today, and where it’s going.

Susan Critelli's curator insight, March 18, 2013 8:35 AM

It’s estimated that there are between 1.7 and 2.1 million children homeschooled in the U.S. today, and that number is in an upward swing, with a growth rate of 7 to 15% each year, particularly over the last two decades. Much of this may be thanks to the proliferation of hybrid homeschooling, allowing families many more options when it comes to customized home education as they bring in a combination of private tutoring, educational programs, group classes, and even online courses.
