Title: Program Design for Children


1
MAGIC OF PICTURE BOOKS BUILDING BLOCKS FOR
LITERACY
Program Design for Children Sya VanGeest

Educators today, agree that all students
benefit from opportunities to read and respond to
a wide variety of literature. Yes, contrary to
popular belief, older students can and do learn
from picture books! (Forte Schurr 1995)

NURTURE A READERNurture a Sapling
  • The child growing up in an environment brimming
    with books, magazines, and newspapers,
  • - seeing and hearing a parent read,
  • - owning a library card
  • - that child will have far higher scores than
    will the child raised in a print vacuum.

Dr. G. Kylene Beers

Promote Reading for Fun
  • If we teach children how to read,
    but none of them want to,
    have we done our job?
    Steven
    Layne. Lifes Literacy Lessons (IRA2001)

5
The Power of Reading
  • Those who dont read
  • have no advantage over those who cant
    Mark Twain
  • If we encounter a man of rare intellect,
  • we should ask him what books he reads.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • Once you learn to read
  • You will be forever free .
  • Frederick Douglas. Abolitionist
    Leader. (ALA poster)
  • Literature is my Utopia.

  • Helen Keller

  • Pictures enrich the text
  • Energized by strong words

How Do We Get Children To Read?
  • The literacy platforms are really pretty funny
    when you think about it. If there were one best
    way, dont you think we would have found it by
    now?
  • Steven L. Layne Lifes Literacy Lessons
    (IRA2001)

Types of Readers, Dr. G. Kylene Beers
What type of reader are you?
School Library Journal (Jan / Feb 1996)
  • The Avid Reader
  • The Dormant Reader
  • The Unmotivated Reader
  • The Uncommitted Reader
  • The Unskilled Reader

10
Using Picture Books as Mental Sets for lessons
A successful introduction to a lesson , which
establishes a positive mental set, makes it far
easier to sustain learning as the lesson
unfolds. (Kyriacou 1998)
11
MENTAL SET
  • A Good Mental Set Should . . .
  • Link to past learning/ prior knowledge
  • Actively involve students
  • Relate to lesson objective

Example Lesson about childrens rights -
Students, in pairs, come up with two rights they
feel all children should have. - Read A Carpet
Boys Gift by Pegi Deitz Shea. - Discuss which
of the brainstormed rights Nadeem and Amina did
not have. Is this fair?
