Should we still lecture in the classroom?

Friends, 

What are you reading this summer? Best books for STEM!

Summer reading lists are often a way to encourage students to stay connected to your program and maintain the gains earned through their I invite you to check out the recommendations for the best STEM books for K-12.  Perhaps you can collaborate with your local library to build a STEM book display and encourage your students to use the local library. Perhaps some of these books can be added to your classroom library. 

I'd love to hear how you could use these books in your classroom? What books would you add to the list?

How podcasts can improve literacy

Hello colleagues, Recently, we've been having an engaging discussion focused on defining reading and reading instruction here on LINCS. For instance, questions such as how is listening to an audio book and reading a book the same and different. Well known adult literacy researcher, Tom Sticht has contributed to the discussion to explain his concept of auding. If you haven't dropped in on this discussion yet, I encourage you to do so.

Teaching Pronunciation

Hello colleagues, How do you approach teaching pronunciation to English learners? Is this something you do in each class? What strategies have you found helpful? What resources can you recommend for teaching pronunciation effectively? What challenges, if any, have you encountered when teaching pronunciation?

Looking forward to your comments!

Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
