I don't want to remain untouched by a book. Why should the book want to remain untouched by me?

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, February 1, 10:29 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.

QR Code Treasure Hunt Brings Teens to Libraries

QR Code Treasure Hunt Brings Teens to Libraries | Skolbiblioteket och lärande | Scoop.it

By Sarah Rich:

"Chesterfield County, Va., libraries challenges teens to go on the iHunt."

 

"As a way to teach teens about library resources, the Chesterfield County, Va., public libraries gave them a challenge: Solve problems with the help of quick response (QR) codes.

At the Chesterfield County Public Library, QR codes were deemed a fitting technology to use for teaching teens information about the county libraries."
