EDUCATION: Literature and Writing for the Youngsters

Stumbled across this site called “Interactives, Elements of a Story” that may be a very useful tool for teachers to reach students via the internet in helping them learn about, for one thing, the elements of a story as in this case. It is an interactive site that offers visuals, audio to tell the story of Cinderella, then includes the assistance of further explanation of the elements, i.e, setting, and a checkup quiz.

But wait, there’s more; the site also offers similar interactives on Math, History, Science and Cinema.

    Something interesting I learned this spring was the vast difference between book reading and internet reading. In book reading we are trained to begin at the top left of the page and continue to the bottom. Pay close attention to how you look at an internet screen! Bold and colorful print gets the first glance, unless there’s a picture, then it’s picture, caption, headline, skim for details, jump to the next block of text (or repeat from beginning). Internet literacy is a hugely different beast from traditional literacy. Can this help you in your hypertext? Don’t know, but this made me want to share it with you.
