Your Brain on Books: Scientific American - 12 views

  •  
    One of my favorite inquiries is how the brain works with language. This book looks fascinating!

    "Learning to read seems to be one of the more important changes that we impose to our children's brain. The impact that it has on us is tantalizing. It raises very fundamental issues of how the brain and culture interact. "

The New Writing Pedagogy - 21 views

  •  
    I love how this article is framed.

    "Still, is this shift in pedagogy and policy worth the effort? Will sound, traditional writing instruction still suffice, or do we need to reframe the way we teach students to write due to the global, online spaces they will frequent more in their lives?

    In an August 2009 Wired article, Andrea Lunsford, professor of writing and rhetoric at Stanford University, offered her own research to suggest that students are writing in environments far removed from those from even a generation ago. "I think we're in the midst of a literacy revolution the likes of which we haven't seen since Greek civilization," she says. According to her five-year study of student writing, technology is pushing writing literacy in new directions that educators must begin to make sense of. "

    This is a great site that I have used for many years. I have used it with elementary (5th grade) students several years However, teachers should know that you need to monitor and teach use of this site. It is essentially a social networking site and the kids will learn to use it as such very quickly. There are adult themed books as well as independent groups where inappropriate discussions take place. I have emailed Shelfari and asked if they plan to make an education version or limited account option for use with students. That being said I think it's a great platform for teaching those essential netiquette skills!
