Topic: Applied Literacies

Title: “Museum Literacies of a Second-Grade Classroom.” AJ Eakle and BL Dalesio. The Reading Teacher (May 2008), 604-613. A publication of the International Reading Association.

Summary: Students put together museum exhibits on topics that involve traditional (reading and writing) and technological (pictures, sound) literacies. Information came from books, people and the Internet.

Comment: Another form of research—at a very early age. RayS.

The purpose of this blog is to share interesting ideas I have found in recent American professional publications dealing with the teaching of English at all levels, elementary, secondary and college.
