Literature

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

  The thought that the more we learn, the more we realize we don’t know can also be applied to the field of literature. The more we read, the more we find there is to read. An association with the great minds of today and yesterday can give anyone a bedrock foundation to build a lifetime of learning.

  What are the benefits of being familiar with the written word? Reading a variety of material can expose the reader to broader ideas and visions of existence and the possibilities life holds for all. Reading acquaints us with different ways to problem solve; we can see, through any given character, ideas that do not work well, without having to go through the situation ourselves. Literature familiarizes us with the human experience-we identify with some and learn to have a broader perspective of others-as we come into contact with characters and circumstances unlike our own.

  Great literature takes us places. Our thoughts can awaken to sights, sounds, smells and emotions we would not have not felt ourselves-if not for a book. We can travel to a different time, a separate world, a place apart through the vehicle of literature. We are permitted entrance to disparate thoughts via the mind of the author or characters presented to us in a book. Literature promotes learning and expands horizons for all who are fortunate enough to be introduced to it.

Writing

Friday, March 20th, 2009

  Writing allows us to make sense and personal meaning of the world around us. Not everyone is an author, but everyone should be a writer. We participate in the writing process when we jot down a shopping list, text a friend or dash off an email. Imagine a world with no words-how would communication, sense, or meaning be possible?

  Teaching children to write begins with encouraging them whenever they take pen, pencil or crayon to paper, or want to type on the keyboard. Parents and instructors can provide guidance to these activities in many ways. Some hold that children should not be held responsible for spelling mistakes-after all it is argued-they will have spell check when they get older-so why bother? Writing, as with any form of communication, is always more meaningful if the writer is able to convey ideas so that the reader truly understands. Learning at least the basic rudiments of spelling is a necessity to foster the writer in your child.

  Writing allows each of us to share-and that is what it is all about in this world. Young children try to tell us by words, gestures, facial expressions, body language and pictures how they feel and what they see. The ability to write allows them one more indispensable avenue, and permits all to share in their experiences. Another valuable contribution of the written word is that it allows us to revisit these memories and remember. Writing-there is nothing quite like it for describing our world and how we see it.
