10 Intriguing Photographs to Teach Close Reading and Visual Thinking Skills -

Ever want your students to slow down and notice details when they read — whether they’re perusing a book, a poem, a map or a political cartoon? Young people often want to hurry up and make meaning via a quick skim or a cursory glance when a text can demand patience and focus. Closely reading any text, whether written or visual, requires that students proceed more slowly and methodically, noticing details, making connections and asking questions. This takes practice. We’ve selected 10 photos from The Times that we’ve used previously in our weekly “What’s Going On in This Picture?” Below, we offer ideas from students and teachers who have engaged with these images for ways to use them, or images like them, to teach close reading and visual thinking skills. 1.

Ondskan av Jan Guillou utkom 1981 och handlar om Erik Ponti, en övermänniska som bokstavligen slår sig fram på den fiktiva internatskolan Stjärnsberg.

Om du tänkt läsa Ondskan

Det är helt klart en onödigt våldsam bok med nästintill bara manliga karaktärer och faktiskt inte direkt välskriven. Fortfarande är Ondskan en av de vanligaste böckerna dagens högstadieelever får läsa. En modern klassiker förvisso, men visst finns det bättre alternativ.

Julia Roberts plays Mother Earth and Harrison Ford stars as the Ocean as Hollywood A-list 'speaks out for nature'

You’ve nodded off already, haven’t you? But wake up! Here are some Hollywood A-listers making a decent attempt to move beyond the obscure jargon and reveal the existential nature of what the Earth provides for humanity. The Nature is Speaking initiative is organised by Conservation International with the tag-line: “Nature doesn’t need people.


Litteraturblogga. Läroboksförfattaren Filippa Mannerheim har i samarbete med Webbstjärnan tagit fram lärarhandledningen "Litteraturblogga med eleverna" som vänder sig till lärare på gymnasienivå som vill blogga om litteratur tillsammans med sina elever.


Från hur du kommer igång med bloggen och skapar den rätta strukturen, via planering av litteraturprojektet, till elevuppgifter, bedömning och utvärdering. Det ingår dessutom förslag på romaner att blogga om, långsiktiga mål för projektet, underlag för betygskriterierna samt en intervju med Kristina Alexanderson som tidigare litteraturbloggat tillsammans med sina elever. Stories & Poems. ”Som en roman. Om lusten att läsa” av Daniel Pennac. Fransmannen Daniel Pennac har skrivit en bok om läsande, riskerna med att tvinga människor (framförallt skolungdom) att läsa och läsarens rättigheter.

”Som en roman. Om lusten att läsa” av Daniel Pennac

Det är en underbar liten bok skriven av en passionerad läsare för passionerade läsare (och kanske oxå för de som -ännu- inte är så passionerade). Verbet läsa tål inte imperativ… Man kan ju alltid försöka. Låt oss göra det:… ”Läs! Men läs då, för tusan, jag befaller dig att läsa!” (s 11) Läs- och skrivportalen.

Homebuilt pickups and trailer hitches: How underage teens skirt the law to drive in

[Editor’s Note: Ronan Glon of Ran When Parked recently took a trip to the Swedish countryside, where he discovered a sneaky (and legal) way some teens there have figured out how to drive before the legal age.] Some of the most interesting cars that Sweden has to offer are hiding in small, rural towns, not in museums. That’s because 15-year-olds are allowed to drive virtually any type of car if it’s been converted into a two-seater pickup, and modified to top out at about 20 MPH. These home-made pickups are considered tractors by Swedish law, and they’ve been around for nearly a century. In the early days, real tractors were expensive and difficult to come by, so skilled DIYers began chopping up cars (often Ford Model As) to use them in the fields. The one-of-a-kind creations became known as EPA tractors. The popularity of EPA tractors diminished as real, purpose-built tractors became easier to find and much cheaper. Boydiscussionguide.
