7 Unconventional Reasons Why You Absolutely Should Be Reading Books

7 Unconventional Reasons Why You Absolutely Should Be Reading Books | English Education | Scoop.it

"In a world of omnipresent screens, it can be easy to forget the simple pleasure of curling up with a good book. In fact, a recent HuffPost/YouGov poll of 1,000 U.S. adults found that 28 percent hadn't read one at all in the past year.But the truth is that reading books can be more than entertainment (or a high school English assignment). In fact, a study released earlier this month suggests that enjoying literature might help strengthen your "mind-reading" abilities. The research, published in the journal Science, showed that reading literary works (though, interestingly, not popular fiction) cultivates a skill known as "theory of mind," which NPR describes as the "ability to 'read' the thoughts and feelings of others."

Writing to be Read: A Rhetoric For Writing in the Post-Digital Era

"This is a guide for advanced students and research writers who want to master the protocols and structure of a successful, researched, analytical, or interpretive paper, article, or book chapter. This outline of fundamentals comes from years of teaching writing and communication theory to college students, and also from the heuristic rules I use in my own writing and lectures, whatever the length."   By Martin Irvine

In the Fall of 2011, Bud Hunt facilitated a P2PU School of Ed course exploring the new Common Core Standards in Writing. He created an annotatible version of the CCSS that address writing as a way to begin to "internalize & critically consider the text of the writing standards." This is well worth spending some time exploring. ~klbz

List: What Common Core authors suggest high schoolers should read

List: What Common Core authors suggest high schoolers should read | English Education | Scoop.it

A Post story by my colleague Lyndsey Layton about controversy surrounding the Common Core English Language Arts standards — or, more specifically, the call for reading by high school seniors to be 70 percent non-fiction — has generated a lot of online interest.

A number of the hundreds of comments on the story mention some of the reading recommendations from the Common Core authors that Layton mentioned in the story, including “the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (2009) and “Executive Order 13423: Strengthening Federal Environmental, Energy, and Transportation Management,” published by the General Services Administration.”

Here is the full list of reading “exemplars” for high school. The fiction category is divided into stories, poetry and drama, and the nonfiction category, or “informational texts” offers suggested reading in English, History/Social Studies, and Science/ Mathematics/Technical Subjects. (The K-11 exemplars are contained in Appendix B to the standards; there are none listed for 12th grade.)"

Txting is bad grmmr, techrs say - News-Sentinel.com | English Education | Scoop.it

By Tom Lange of The Daily Journal (Johnson County)

Before local high school English teachers can show freshmen how to become more persuasive writers, they have to reteach skills the students were supposed to learn in elementary school.
Students need to be reminded to indent new paragraphs, end sentences with proper punctuation and to capitalize the starts of sentences, proper nouns and “I.”
Armed with cellphones, teens and preteens have forgotten these basics and blame it on texting. Teachers have to stop them from using text language, such as “ur” and “cu later.”
Teacher Nicci Sargent has a list with these and other reminders hanging in her classroom at Franklin Community High School. When Sargent grades a paper and finds any violation of these standards, she stops grading and marks VWE – Violating Writing Expectations – at the top. Students get their papers back and have 24 hours to find and fix their mistakes before they lose points.
“We were constantly seeing these same errors and having to correct them in papers over and over again. These are skills that they learned in the first grade, but somewhere they got out of the habit of using them,” Sargent said.
Ninth grade is a critical year for students' writing skills. By the time most students begin their freshman year, they're relatively skilled at writing stories and other narratives, but they don't know how to write arguments and essays that require clear writing skills, Sargent and Greenwood English teacher Mike Campbell said.

Say What? 5 Ways to Get Students to Listen | Edutopia.org | English Education | Scoop.it

Ah, listening, the neglected literacy skill. I know when I was a high school English teacher this was not necessarily a primary focus; I was too busy honing the more measurable literacy skills -- reading, writing, and speaking. But when we think about career and college readiness, listening skills are just as important. This is evidenced by the listening standards found in the Common Core and also the integral role listening plays in collaboration and communication, two of the four Cs of 21st century learning.

 

So how do we help kids become better listeners? Check out these tactics for encouraging a deeper level of listening that also include student accountability:

"...my classroom is a place where my students spend time piecing together what they have learned, critically evaluating its larger purpose, and reflecting on their own learning. It also means my students don’t acquire knowledge just for the sake of acquiring it. They need to do something with it — that’s where “project-based” comes into play.

Finally, technology is embedded into the structure of all we do. It’s part of how we research, how we capture information, and how we display our learning. It’s never an accessory tacked on at the end."
