Sie werden sicher denken, dass ein Buch ohne Bilder langweilig und sehr ernst ist. Außer ... wenn das Buch so funktioniert: Alles, was in diesem Buch steht, MUSS vorgelesen werden. Selbst wenn da steht: BLORK oder BLuuRF. Selbst wenn es sich um ein absurdes Lied handelt, das davon erzählt, wie Sie einen Floh zum Frühstück verspeisen. Selbst wenn dieses Buch Sie dazu bringt, komische und peinliche Geräusche zu machen. Und vor allem – wenn Sie und Ihre Kinder nicht mehr aufhören können zu lachen! Wunderbar schräg und total albern – Das Buch ohne Bilder gehört zu den Büchern, die Kinder immer wieder vorgelesen haben wollen und Eltern immer wieder gerne vorlesen. Sagen Sie nicht, wir hätten Sie nicht gewarnt – dieses Buch kennt kein Erbarmen! Mit Audio-Lesung. Gesamtspielzeit: 4:50 Min. E-Book mit Audio-Links: Je nach Hardware/Software können die Audio-Links direkt auf dem Endgerät abgespielt werden.

Children's Reading of Film and Visual Literacy in the Primary Curriculum

A Progression Framework Model

Author: Jeannie Hill Bulman

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319583131

Category: Education

Page: 282

View: 8406

This book draws on a longitudinal study which highlights the beneficial impact of film in the primary curriculum. It provides detailed accounts of both the reading process as understood within the field of literacy education, and of film theory as it relates to issues such as narration, genre and audience. The book focuses on a small cohort of children to explore how progression in reading film develops throughout a child’s time in Key Stage 2; it also examines how the skills and understanding required to read film can support the reading of print, and vice versa, in an ‘asset model’ approach. Since children’s progression in reading film is found to be not necessarily age-related, but rather built on a period of experience and opportunity to read and/or create moving image media, Bulman clearly illustrates the importance of the inclusion of film in the primary curriculum. The book provides an accessible study to a large audience of primary teachers and practitioners, and will be a valuable resource for students and researchers in the fields of education, English and media studies.

Second language reading and vocabulary learning

Author: Thomas N. Huckin,Margot Haynes,James Coady

Publisher: Ablex Publishing Corporation

ISBN: N.A

Category: Education

Page: 309

Reading ability and vocabulary knowledge are two of the most important components of performance in a second language, especially in academic settings. Each depend on the other, as vocabulary knowledge is the single most important factor in reading comprehension, while reading is the single most important means by which intermediate and advanced learners acquire new words. This symbiotic relationship is the subject of this volume. The authors argue that building vocabulary through reading is a fruitful but complex activity that needs better understanding and more careful guidance. This book is unique in its emphases on original research. Eight of the 14 chapters are empirical studies published for the first time, including classroom-based case studies, experimental research, and think-aloud protocol analysis. In every chapter, consideration is given to the pedagogical implications and possible applications of the research findings. Lengthy editorial comments at the end of each chapter reinforce this practical concern.

Teaching and Learning Vocabulary

Bringing Research to Practice

Publisher: Routledge

Although proficiency in vocabulary has long been recognized as basic to reading proficiency, there has been a paucity of research on vocabulary teaching and learning over the last two decades. Recognizing this, the U.S. Department of Education recently sponsored a Focus on Vocabulary conference that attracted the best-known and most active researchers in the vocabulary field. This book is the outgrowth of that conference. It presents scientific evidence from leading research programs that address persistent issues regarding the role of vocabulary in text comprehension. Part I examines how vocabulary is learned; Part II presents instructional interventions that enhance vocabulary; and Part III looks at which words to choose for vocabulary instruction. Other key features of this timely new book include: *Broad Coverage. The book addresses the full range of students populating current classrooms--young children, English Language Learners, and young adolescents. *Issues Focus. By focusing on persistent issues from the perspective of critical school populations, this volume provides a rich, scientific foundation for effective vocabulary instruction and policy. *Author Expertise. Few volumes can boast of a more luminous cast of contributing authors (see table of contents). This book is suitable for anyone (graduate students, in-service reading specialists and curriculum directors, college faculty, and researchers) who deals with vocabulary learning and instruction as a vital component of reading proficiency.
