Never Too Old: Embracing Picture Books To Teach Older Students

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, March 1, 1:31 AM
I have long held the belief that picture books were powerful tools for introducing topics or units of study and building engagement with older students. This article goes through some of the reasons why and the ways that students can be impacted by the use of picture books in the higher grades. Low entry, vocabulary support for language learners, and bringing out emotional subtleties with illustrations are all strong reasons to bring out the picture books. Isn't that why many of us call that section "Everybody" rather than "Easy?" This would be an interesting article to share with MS and HS teachers as a way to integrate the librarian into the classroom!
