Digital läsförståelse på engelska genom UDL

Digital läsförståelse på engelska genom UDL
UDL Editions har tillsammans med CAST utvecklat ett läsverktyg som följer några av de principer som finns i UDL ramverket. I detta verktyg kan man välja att läsa/lyssna på sex olika texter och samtidigt få hjälp med att förstå och reflektera runt texten enligt reciprocal teaching, RT I övre högra hörnet finns det talsyntes eller och olikfärgade understrykningspennor som kan vara till hjälp för en del elever. Talsyntesen skulle kunna vidareutvecklas och i många fall är det nog bättre att använda talsyntesen i datorn. När man valt en bok kan man i förväg högst upp på hemsidan t.ex. läsa på glosor, gå igenom begrepp för litteraturanalys, bekanta sig med bakgrunden till berättelsen, läsa en sammanfattning av berättelsen och persongalleriet. Detta underlättar förståelsen för texten för många elever och kan vara en nyckel till att orka igenom en text. Innan man börjar läsa så väljer läsaren nivå 1-3 på hur mycket stöd läsaren behöver med att reflektera runt läsningen. Podtips

The Four Things Students Need to Create Good Book Trailers Creating book trailer videos is a great alternative to a traditional written book report assignment. In a book trailer video students highlight their favorite elements of a story and try to entice viewers to read the book themselves.

The Most Read Book Among High School Seniors From Each State, in One Surprising Map Native Americans living in the Northeast, like Game of Thrones fans, knew one thing at this time of year: Winter is coming. As such, now was the time for one last glut of food before a four-month-at-least period of traveling along with migrating prey in order to hunt for fresh food. In that sense, yes, Native American harvest feasts are a clear primogenitor to today's Thanksgiving. But the truth is more complex. As Thanksgiving matured as a holiday in the Americas, many of the inhabitants in the United States — Native Americans, settlers and enslaved Africans — contributed elements of our modern Thanksgiving meal to the table.

Zlata Filipovic, whose journal was Sarajevo's answer to Anne Frank's diary, tells of her fears for Bosnia today But unfortunately for her, the life she relates in her diary is more often compared to that of Anne Frank, trapped in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation. The Serb siege of Sarajevo went on longer than the Second World War siege of Leningrad, now St Petersburg. Its 380,000 people were left without food, electricity, water or heating for 46 months, hiding from the 330 shells a day that smashed into the city. Bosnians and Croats – who started off as allies – then turned against each other, so the Serbs, Bosnians and Croats all ended up fighting a war that took more than 100,000 lives, made half of the population homeless and left the once ethnically mixed country devastated and divided into mono-ethnic enclaves. And while the horrors of war raged on, Miss Filipovic continued her diary.
