Read.gov: Online books and resources for literacy & reading for everyone

Read.gov: Online books and resources for literacy & reading for everyone.

Library of Congress and several celebrated children’s authors have put together a really fun reading website.  The resources here are for kids, teens, adults and educators/parents.

The Exquisite corpse adventure was my favorite activity.  Teachers and parents who are reading this over the winter break would do well to introduce their own children to this online treasure.    Plus, if you are traveling to DC during this vacation time, be sure to stop in at the Library of Congress which now features an area just for teens and kids.

Did someone say ‘fieldtrip?’

Reading challenges

Marc Marschark is the lead author on a research paper presented in the latest issue of American Annals of the Deaf, vol.154, no.4, 2009.  Are deaf students’ reading challenges really about reading? The article posits “…that deaf students face many of the same challenges in comprehending sign language as they do in comprehending text suggest that difficulties frequently observed in their learning from text may involve more than just reading.” (From the abstract, p. 357.)  Researching college students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the authors found that students understand less of a signed lecture than they think they do.

If you’re signed up to have this journal routed to you, it will be coming after vacation.  If you aren’t and would like to see it, contact us in the upper LRC.
