Using Children’s Books to Teach Literary Theory in High School

Many of them find it boring or don’t see how they can use it in their lives. After two years of trying to justify our study of literary theory to my students, I reevaluated how—and why—I was teaching it in the first place. I started with the literature I had been making my students read during our literary analysis unit. I often assigned “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, a story with a lot of symbolism and depth, or “The Oval Portrait” by Edgar Allan Poe. Although students usually understood these stories on a surface level, I quickly realized that they didn’t provide a solid baseline from which students could work.

Public library use in U.S. highest among Millennials

A new analysis of Pew Research Center survey data from fall 2016 finds that 53% of Millennials (those ages 18 to 35 at the time) say they used a library or bookmobile in the previous 12 months. That compares with 45% of Gen Xers, 43% of Baby Boomers and 36% of those in the Silent Generation. (It is worth noting that the question wording specifically focused on use of public libraries, not on-campus academic libraries.)

All told, 46% of adults ages 18 and older say they used a public library or bookmobile in the previous 12 months – a share that is broadly consistent with Pew Research Center findings in recent years. Members of the youngest adult generation are also more likely than their elders to have used library websites.

EdWebet71 Future Ready Librarians. Does the classroom of the future look more like a coffee shop? Peek inside Brittany Horning’s second-grade class at L’Ouverture Elementary School, and you’ll see kids sprawled on large ottomans, perched atop bouncy seats, lying back on gamer-style recliners and using footstools as makeshift desks. It looks more like a living room or a neighborhood coffee shop – minus the whirring espresso machine – than a traditional classroom with rows of desks. “The kids really enjoy being in this environment. It feels comfortable to them,” said Janelle Roland, who oversees the school’s teacher training and behavior plan.

“It’s been a really interesting and fun and exciting thing to put into place.” L’Ouverture, a computer and technology magnet school near 13th and Mosley, is experimenting with flexible seating – long benches, standing desks, bouncy chairs and wedge cushions – in the hopes of encouraging creativity and collaboration. The idea: Flexible seating arrangements better reflect modern, 21st-century learning styles. Next page: The real cost of the change. THE BRITISH LIBRARY - The world's knowledge.

The purpose of the modern high school Media Center is to support 21st Century teaching and learning. As partners with subject area teachers, Media Specialists ensure students have the resources they need to solve problems through collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, innovation, and communication.

Media Specialists are integral to the teaching of research skills: they help select the best resources and teach students how to use them; they teach students how to cite sources, avoid plagiarism, and create presentations. Media Specialists also teach students how to use software for word processing and creating slideshows, podcasts, brochures, and other digital products.

Function Follows Form: How Google Apps can transform 21st Century Learning Presented by Michelle Luhtala, Head Librarian, New Canaan High School, CT In the Emerging Tech community's webinar this month, presenter, Michelle Luhtala, educated participants on the benefits of using Google Applications in the classroom.

Schools across the country pledge to teach 21st century skills, but building a culture of collaborators can prove difficult. Luckily, Google Apps for education provides tools to transform an insular learning community into a collaborative one. In this session, the presenter introduced Google applications that empower teachers and students to learn together outside of the boundaries imposed by geography and time. 10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Society of Pediatrics state infants aged 0-2 years should not have any exposure to technology, 3-5 years be restricted to one hour per day, and 6-18 years restricted to 2 hours per day (AAP 2001/13, CPS 2010). Children and youth use 4-5 times the recommended amount of technology, with serious and often life threatening consequences (Kaiser Foundation 2010, Active Healthy Kids Canada 2012).

Handheld devices (cell phones, tablets, electronic games) have dramatically increased the accessibility and usage of technology, especially by very young children (Common Sense Media, 2013). As a pediatric occupational therapist, I’m calling on parents, teachers and governments to ban the use of all handheld devices for children under the age of 12 years.
