Visualization is something I think will help students with comprehension, this article more about communication but there are some good points about visualizing thinking.
Liz Becker's comment, June 13, 2012 3:36 PM
I like this. I think #4 might be a good way to describe and help students with this when it comes to multiple texts. Also, I worked at a tutoring center where one of the tutors was really good at getting struggling readers to visualize what they were reading. He had them develop and explain the "movie" in their mind in order to aid in comprehension. It is a pretty cool strategy.

Rosanne M Lammey's comment, May 30, 2012 8:38 PM
"Why slow down? The first part of the book makes the case for slowing down our reading to hear the author's voice, focus on single ideas, be in dialogue with the text/author and do more than just comprehend the text, but internalize and act on text. " I liked this quote from this book review, it makes sense.
Liz Becker's comment, May 31, 2012 10:11 AM
This looks like an interesting read and is related to what I'm trying to get my students to do. I may snag it from the library and see if it has information I can incorporate, especially on annotation, problematizing, and reading like a writer.

Another example of why SSR is important in the classroom. Getting our struggling readers to read at their level can boost their confidence and give them a positive attitude about their reading accomplishments and hopefully encourage them to read more. Of course the more students read their vocabulary words they know will increase too.

I like this idea of visual literacy. We know by using a variety of strategies in the classroom we teach to more learning styles. This seems like a fun way for students to use the inquiry method.
Liz Becker's comment, May 2, 2012 10:07 PM
As a history teacher, I often use visual primary sources. As you mentioned, visuals are a great way to tap into different learning styles. They are also a less stressful way for students to learn the technique of document analysis. Once they feel they can do it well with visuals, we often move on to text sources. This type of scaffolding seems to work well.

Liz Becker's comment, June 13, 2012 3:40 PM
I'm not sold on all of it either, but there are some good points. I especially liked the advice not to separate struggling and advanced readers. While there are some advantages to separation, I think one of the detriments is surrounding struggling readers mostly with other students who see reading negatively. Hopefully, putting them with advanced readers will get them to realize that there are people out there who DO like reading, and it may be worth taking the risk. I know this is a simplification of the issue, but I like the idea.

I think this hook for reading is one that is going to be popular later. There are many students playing these games and maybe this can help introduce them to the books.
Liz Becker's comment, May 31, 2012 10:25 AM
This article mentions John Paul Gee and his work on literacy and video games. It's interesting stuff if you get the chance to look at it. He has some good advice about how you can incorporate the way video games work into your teaching without using the actual games. Also, there is a TED Talk by game designer David Perry called "Are Games Better than Life?" that provides some very interesting food for thought about games. While the talk is from 2008 and many of the statistics have changed, the basic ideas are the same. You can see the talk here: http://www.ted.com/talks/david_perry_on_videogames.html

Hello Rosanne,

I checked this sight out and I too love all the options it has to offer. I am the type of person who tends to believe I need to re-invent the wheel for everything. One of my professors called me out on this non-quality early in my bachelors program. She told me there are so many resources out there for lessons that I do not need to create every single one myself.. This site is a great resource to check if there is already some sort of worksheet premade for a lesson :) Thank you for this valuable tool! I especially like the social studies sheet on "how laws are made".
