Science Shows Something Surprising About People Who Love to Write - The Poetry Room | viver para escrever | Scoop.it

Did you know the benefits of writing go far beyond building up your vocabulary. I find writing to be one of the most enjoyable activities. There is nothing that I like better than to sit on my couch at the end of the day with a cup of tea and write for …

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education'

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education' | viver para escrever | Scoop.it

In a society where one in three homes has no books owned by the children in them, it is essential that youngsters can find them elsewhere.

 

Recent research emphasises this importance. A study by the Institute of Education (2013) found reading for pleasure ‘to be more important for children's cognitive development between ages 10 and 16 than their parents' level of education.’

"In a society where one in three homes has no books owned by the children in them..." Wow this statement makes me sad, but the article is hopeful.

Escrever à mão

Quando era miúda e tinha de estudar, precisava absolutamente de ter um bloco à mão para fazer apontamentos do que ia lendo a fim de decorar e sistematizar a informação; julgo, aliás, que as famosas cábulas já ensinavam muito a quem as fazia, porque copiar ...

Literatura infantil em Portugal: boom ou bang? | Bibliotecário de Babel | viver para escrever | Scoop.it

A expansão internacional deve-se sobretudo «ao salto qualitativo gigante revelado pelos ilustradores portugueses», nem sempre acompanhado pela escrita. «É mais difícil encontrar bons textos. Temos excelentes escritores, mas nem todos escrevem para a infância/juventude. Não é uma coisa que se decida por decreto.»

Does the language you speak really affect how you see the future?

Does the language you speak really affect how you see the future? | viver para escrever | Scoop.it
The way people discuss the future varies from language to language. Some have a well-defined future tense, while others distinguish much between present and future. But does this point of grammar actually affect how we see the world?
Marta Ramos's insight:

Isto é interessante. Há línguas em que a distinção entre presente e futuro é muito clara, como a nossa, mas há outras em que não. Será que isso afecta a forma como cada falante percepciona o futuro?

Marcador de Livros: Além da Literatura, de João Bigotte Chorão, nas livrarias a 21 de março

Marcador de Livros: Além da Literatura, de João Bigotte Chorão, nas livrarias a 21 de março | viver para escrever | Scoop.it

A literatura que não seja apenas exercício linguístico ou texto sem contexto persegue um alto objectivo: é uma aventura espiritual que, sem descurar a importância da linguagem e a circunstância histórica, se preocupa sobretudo com o destino do homem e com o fim dos tempos.

Marta Ramos's insight:

«O debate de ideias pressupõe cultura e senso cívico, e nós somos um povo de apaixonados e repentistas. Não conversamos: discutimos. Temos fé e temos rasgo, e a fé dispensa da procura e o rasgo dispensa do estudo.»

Grammar's great divide: The Oxford comma [TED-ED] | viver para escrever | Scoop.it
f you read "Bob, a DJ and a clown" on a guest list, are three people coming to the party, or only one? That depends on whether you're for or against the Oxford comma -- perhaps the most hotly contested punctuation mark of all time. When do we use one? Can it really be optional, or is there a universal rule? TED-Ed explores both sides of this comma conundrum.
