School Cafeteria Lunches Around the World Each day in the United States, over 32 million students eat lunches from their school cafeterias. The food consumed accounts for more than half of each students daily calorie intake – which therefore makes the school cafeteria that much more important in delivering healthy food and preventing child obesity. Unfortunately, if you grew up going to an American school and eating food in the cafeteria, it is unlikely you got the most delicious and healthy food. Yet, if you grew up going to a school in another country around the world, you may have had a different experience.

Story Structure for Children's Books, Novels, Movies, etc. A short explanation of story structure In a romance, the two people who are "meant to be" are typically protagonist and antagonist. They tend to spend a lot more time causing trouble for the other than they do being in love. Story Structure and the Arc of a Story Once something has happened, and now that something has to be done, you are into the second act (or middle) of a story. The middle of a story is always the story's longest part. This second act of a story consists of the protagonist trying to get his or her life back in order. Of course, if the first thing the protagonist tries results in success, you end up with a very short story. In The Cat in the Hat, Thing One and Thing Two are introduced after the cat has already made his own mess. So when does the second act (or middle) of a story end? The third act, or end, reflects a new stasis, or life as it will be from this time forward. Think of three act structure as looking like this: Got all that?

Skrivarskola - Mediekompass Publicerad: 10 december 2018 Medie- och informationskunnighet – MIK – är centrala frågor i Skolverkets styrdokument och avgörande för vår förmåga och möjlighet att orientera oss i en komplex och föränderlig omvärld. Förståelse för och kunskap om det journalistiska uppdraget och arbetssättet är därför av stor betydelse i undervisningen för våra barn och ungdomar. Genom att låta eleverna själva arbeta med journalistiskt skrivande som ett led i undervisningen, ges de möjligheten att utveckla förmågor att förstå, värdera och tolka nyheter och information. Mediekompass Skrivarskola syftar till att underlätta för lärare som vill använda sig av det journalistiska arbetet som metod i sin undervisning. Centralt i Skrivarskolan är Publicistguiden som Mediekompass utvecklat tillsammans med Statens Medieråd. Här finner du Publicistguiden som nedladdningsbar PDF.
