And off to meet the students. I love teaching. Always an exciting day! I teach developmental English at the community college, and I love it. I believe strongly in the mission of our community colleges, and view them as great institutions.
Oh– and a picture from a nature walk the other day.
Wish me luck, and thanks for reading.
From my phone.
Wishing all educators returning to school this week all the best! 👍🍀❤️.
For those not returning? 👍🍀❤️.
For adjuncts not knowing if we will have a paycheck or not but still need to prep? 😱
I love y’all !
As a reading specialist, teacher, and avid reader myself, I am interested in reading research. This study shows that students often learn better when they read print v. screen reading materials : Study: text v. screen
For everyday leisure reading, I am fine with a kindle or screen reading. In fact, it’s more convenient so I read MORE. But when I need DEPTH? Then I need paper. Might be true for many others, according to this study.
I am not, in any way, denigrating the power of e-texts to engage us to read. I read so much more now that I can quickly and easily access texts on my Kindle. I am, and my colleagues have been concerned, about the pushing of e-texts in formal education, textbooks on iPads, etc.
What about you? Do you prefer to read using paper texts or e-texts?
