Books for Boys that Aren't “Books for Boys” | The Hub

Books for Boys that Aren't “Books for Boys” | The Hub | Skolbiblioteket och lärande | 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."

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, February 1, 7:29 AM

1 February 2014

Yeah! Yeah! We've all heard about "thinking outside the box," a phrase so overused that too many now proudly use the phrase as though the phrase itself was their own stroke of outside the box thinking  and apply it lavishing to their own collection of inane parrotings.

 

So, maybe I'm the first to suggest, probably not, that this article is actually a welcome and thought provoking alternate take on what books are about.

 

Here's the comment I left at the end of the article (Don't hate me)...

 

"Love it!  


My new mantra! Let's hear in for "Thinking inside the book!"

 

As a teacher I used to provide my students with packets of the smallest multi-colored post-its so the could "write in the book AND at the same time bookmark the passages of particular meaning to them. Then I'd tell them to either remove them after they'd written their final paper. I'd also encourage them to consider writing in the book and then "losing it." But, I'd  also remind them (encourage them) that they would not be allowed to march in the graduation ceremony if they hadn't paid for lost books.

 

And, when I pointed out that there might be a relevant lesson to learn about love in The Velveteen Rabbit, I always got several grins from kids who just seemed to have issues not losing their books until the day I collected books; and they always handed me an envelope with the exact change in it to cover their "irresponsible act,"  lower their eyes and say "sorry." Then they'd raise their eyes, smile and wink at me. And, I'd simply put on a stern face, say, "I hope you've learned your lesson," smile and wink back.

Because 99% of the time, the books are better than the movies. Some of these film adaptations, though, look really promising.

Looking for a good book club for students or staff? Great way to get your teaching staff exposed to some good titles. Here's some ideas. Always fun to wrap it up with a good movie.

What’s a classic? Well, to most of you, its’ probably a long, boring book that evil educational administrators are forcing you to read over your all-too-short summer vacation. To some of you, it’s a rich novel full of complex characters that puts those stupid, simplistic YA paperbacks to shame.

Vad gör en bok till en klassiker?

En klassiker är en tidlös roman som läses av generation efter generation, och som har ”det där lilla extra” som en klassiker ska ha.

Read Beyond the Lines: Transmedia has changed the very notion of books and reading — The Digital Shift

Read Beyond the Lines: Transmedia has changed the very notion of books and reading — The Digital Shift | Skolbiblioteket och lärande | Scoop.it

"I keep asking myself a question in these situations (I hope the librarians and teachers in the room are asking it, too): when these kids leave school, are they also reading every day? And if they are, how big would the reading slice of pie be compared to, say, posting on Facebook, listening to music, and texting their friends? I’m increasingly convinced that I’m staring at a pie where 90 percent of the slices are cut up into non-reading forms of entertainment and social media."

An interesting "personalized" story of the life of a Library Book.

 

Kind of touching to say the least.

 

I wonder whether the style of this article might make for an interesting writing exercise in reflective introspection. Perhaps, students could "become" the tellers of the stories of the life of...

Here's another reading incentive idea--make students go on a 'blind date' with a good book.  This would definitely work well for high schoolers.
