Let's read together! - Billy Elliot - Mia Smith Jag är ingen litteraturmänniska. Jag vet inte hur många gånger jag sagt dessa ord. Under lärarutbildningen valde jag i största möjliga utsträckning de kurser som fokuserade på lingvistik, snarare än litteratur. Är det för att jag inte tycker om att läsa? Inom ramen för läslyftet arbetar jag och mina kollegor just nu med modulen Samtal om text. En kollega upplyste mig om att vi hade en klassuppsättning av en enkel version av Billy Elliot. Boken är en så kallad easy reader på nivå 3. Läsning Eleverna fick, efter att jag läst på ordentligt inom ramen för Läslyftet, skriva läsloggar, där de svarar på frågorna enskilt. I koppling till detta har jag också visat korta snuttar ur filmen och från musikalen som är baserad på filmen. Skrivande Projektet är ännu inte avslutat. Muntlig presentation En ytterligare uppgift eleverna ska få är att skapa ett kort videomeddelande till mig kopplat till filmen. Så, kunde jag gjort annorlunda?

"Blank Map of Europe" Before reading The Boy in the Striped Pajamas it is important for the students to have an understanding of what the holocaust was. “Holocaust Terms Glossary” About.com. I feel that it is very important to discuss as a class the holocaust in general before beginning the study of the novel, and in order to initiate a discussion I would have the class work together to create an ABC’s of the holocaust book. “Introduction to the Holocuast.” Another option for teaching about the holocaust would be to have the students read the “Introduction to the Holocaust” page located on the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website, www.ushmm.org. Sanders, Jessica. Sanders, Jessica. I would introduce the theme of clothes and status in the novel. Bernard, J. Shaw, Sarah Dennis.

O'Reilly Open Books Project O'Reilly has published a number of Open Books--books with various forms of "open" copyright--over the years. The reasons for "opening" copyright, as well as the specific license agreements under which they are opened, are as varied as our authors. Perhaps a book was outdated enough to be put out of print, yet some people still needed the information it covered. Or the author or subject of a book felt strongly that it should be published under a particular open copyright. But there's more to making Open Books available online than simply adopting an open license or giving up rights granted under copyright law. We're happy to have partnered with two innovative nonprofits, Creative Commons and the Internet Archive, to solve the licensing and digitizing challenges involved in bringing Open Books to readers. While the books listed here use various open licenses, since 2003 we've focused on using the licenses created by Creative Commons. Donate to Creative Commons and the Internet Archive:

She shifted around on the windowsill to look at her reflection and flinched. Not that she hadn’t been warned. He’d talked his way out of it of course, with a flash of snug fitting emerald green slacks; typical leprechaun. She reached into her pocket, pulled out the small metal tool she used to open windows and slid it along the edge of the glass, carefully removing it. “You’re here! “Yeah, whatever, go back to sleep, kid.” He’d pulled out a piece of tissue from under his pillow, unwrapping it to reveal a blood-streaked tooth. “Here you are.” She’d stepped back in horror. His lower lip wobbled. “OK.
