Into the Wild, by Jon Krakauer

Into the Wild, by Jon Krakauer | Reflections of a teacher librarian | Scoop.it

"In McCandless, Krakauer had found another stubborn, lonely soul; a man at home in the solitude of nature. Krakauer writes that he was struck by “the parallels between events in his life and those in my own,” most notably a reckless passion for risk and adventure, and a fragile paternal connection."

Intellectually talented kids “don’t get the attention of policymakers,” said psychology professor David Lubinski of Vanderbilt University. “But if you’re trying to solve problems in the world like climate change and terrorism and STEM innovation, and transportation and managing our healthcare, you want intellectually precocious youth who have had their intellectual needs met.”

My presentation will be about ‘how does a space reflect the evolution of a library in the 21st century?’ Now, instead of information being the big thing, there’s the spatial and social aspects. The library has gone from being reading centred, to storage centred, and now we’re into learning centred. So we’ve tried to design a space that shows this evolution of learning.

I think it expresses perfectly how absorbed people are with their phones and how much they are missing out on by constantly looking down and not participating with whats going on around them. This video is a great combination of interesting visuals and quirky script that ensures the interest of the audience is maintained.

Charlotte Walters's curator insight, April 11, 2014 8:24 AM

Hello, Year 9! 

Here is an excellent resource regarding questions that a critical thinker asks whilst reading. I believe this will be incredibly useful for you as you develop your chapter summary for chapter four of The Outsiders which is due at the end of this week. Remember - you can present your chapter summary in any way you wish - a story board, a mind map, a Prezi, a short multimedia presentation, whatever takes your fancy. 

As a critical thinker, you will need to develop the skills to read between the lines of what the author (in this case, S. E. Hinton) is describing through the text. This infographic provides you with some questions to help you get into the role of a critical thinker, and get you started on your project.
