A Proposed Reset Button for Children Online | California legislators, faced with the problem of reckless online behavior by children, and of the sometimes outsize and life-changing repercussions from that behavior, are trying to solve the problem with the first measure in the country to give minors the legal right to scrub away their online indiscretions. The legislation puts the state in the middle of a turbulent debate over how best to protect children and their privacy on the Internet, and whether states should even be trying to tame the Web, Somini Sengupta reports. http://blog.basearts.com/2013/09/20/a-proposed-reset-button-in-online-privacy-for-minors/

Talking With Artists Who Teach
:
 http://www.pz.gse.harvard.edu/talking_with_artists_who_teach.phpMany artists, in addition to their artistic practice, maintain a rich and dedicated teaching practice. Though the popular notion is that artists teach to supplement their income, this study is premised on the understanding that teaching is, for many, an opportunity to think deeply about the nature of art, their own artistic practice, their own growth and development, and what and how others learn in and through the arts.

What Are Some Methods for Teaching Reading Strategies?

  • BEFORE-READING activities should emphasize methods of merging reader, text, and content --enabling students to set appropriate reading purposes, recall related prior knowledge, preview and predict what the text will be about, and select reading methods to suit their purposes and the text. Included in these considerations may be readers' decisions to expand their background knowledge through related discussion, exploration of key concepts, or related reading.
  • DURING-READING activities should enable students to monitor their comprehension through a variety of strategies and experience and acquire diverse fix-up strategies to improve their understanding where necessary.
  • AFTER-READING activities should teach students to review their understanding of text, relate new ideas to their background knowledge, revisit the text to clarify and extend meanings, make responsible interpretations and criticisms of ideas from the text, revise their thinking, apply the information to other texts and disciplines, and remember crucial learning for future application.
