Engaging Boys in Literacy

"Boys need a sense of purpose in order to engage with what they do. Give them an audience, create real ‘wow’ moments and help develop a love of fiction. Gary Wilson explores some practical ways in which you can help to engage boys."

The brain's active processing capacity is finite, so unless knowledge is encoded in long-term memory, having to search for it actually crowds out other forms of cognition. Knowing things helps you think and read successfully.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's insight:
Embedded non-fiction when reading fiction with students helps with understanding not only of the fiction but how non-fiction is a useful tool for learning. Interesting read.

This is a powerful article from Educational Leadership that provides research to back up the fact that prior knowledge is a key component to reading instruction. We tend to think that knowing something is less important nowadays because we can simply Google the answer. Not so, according to author Doug Lemov. This is my take-away: "The brain's active processing capacity is finite, so unless knowledge is encoded in long-term memory, having to search for it actually crowds out other forms of cognition. Knowing things helps you think and read successfully."
This has implications for libraries and how we support reading instruction. To me, it also solidifies the practice of allowing students to check out books that interest them as they emerge as readers and not pigeon-hole them into Lexile ranges. Those little nuggets of information could be just that piece of prior knowledge needed to "think and read successfully" in the future. Enjoy!
