            Beyond Literary Analysis: Teaching Students to Write with Passion and Authority about Any Text (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Allison Marchetti and Rebekah O'Dell invite you to join them on a transformational journey. Out of the dark tunnel of boring literary analysis assignments, they lead you into a world where students learn to write fresh, compelling, authentic arguments based on their own unique in...terests. There is a place for analysis of literature in our classrooms, they write. But we think there is more. In this book, we invite you to explore your teaching of analytical writing from a new perspective. To open your mind to the real world of analytical writing, and challenge traditional notions about what students should be analyzing and how they should write it. Allison and Rebekah offer a broadened definition of analysis for the 21st century classroom. Analysis is everywhere, they argue. It's about video games and athletes' seasons, and the latest album, or the new Netflix series. This new definition of text allows students to tap into their passions-and learn to write with expertise on topics that matter to them. No matter where your students begin as writers-full of confidence or full of avoidance-unleashing them to explore the topics and texts they are passionate about can transform your classroom and transform their writing. With samples throughout the book, you'll see what students of all levels and experiences can do when they're supported with mentor texts, targeted writing instruction, and the opportunity to write beyond literary analysis.

            Enhancing Digital Literacy and Creativity is an exploration of how young children gain digital literacies in `makerspaces.' The international authors investigate how hands-on experimentation with a variety of materials - from traditional arts and crafts to contemporary digital to...ols like 3D printers and laser cutters - can aid children in their development of play, creativity and storytelling. From museums to libraries, nursery schools to community centres, this research shows how `making' supports the development of creative skills and introduces concepts to be explored in a variety of environments and contexts. Drawing on examples from around the globe, described by a range of international academics, Enhancing Digital Literacy and Creativity includes chapters on: Virtual reality Museum and library makerspaces Intergenerational making in families Making in schools and nursery settings Assessing learning in makerspaces Links to previous theories Social imagination This book will be a valuable resource for students and researchers in the fields of education and digital literacies; early childhood teacher educators and practitioners; librarians; museum educators; and makerspace staff.
