Reading is a big part of our values here at TextbookHub whether reading for pleasure, or reading for advancing knowledge. Reading is amazing for many things including: advancing vocabulary, understanding reading comprehension, increasing focus and much more! Truly understanding a book makes all of the difference in your review of it.

 

After completing a read, students may be asked to complete a book report, a paragraph of final thoughts or a book review. This blog is going to go over the importance of writing a top-notch book review.

 

What is a book review? 

A book review is a compilation of thoughts once one has finished reading a book. A book review is an analysis that incorporates a summary and details of the book into one. When someone reads a book review, that individual should have a full understanding of what that book entails.

 

How to Write a Book Review

The first thing that is beneficial before writing  a book review is to start it as soon as possible, when details are still fresh. Begin with a short summary of the book. Add in detail that helps explain the book, without giving too much away. Book reviews should encourage others to read a book, not give the book away completely.

 

Describing items such as protagonists, antagonists, plot and maybe even the turning point are great things to briefly explain! As you are describing these main factors of a book, be sure to maintain respect, even if it wasn’t a favorite read. 

 

Comparing the book to a similar book can be helpful because maybe someone has never heard of the book that is being reviewed, but they have heard of a similar book. If this is the case, it may intrigue the reader to read the book that is being reviewed. 

 

Writing a review is no easy task. It takes time, energy and patience to ensure it’s just right! Proofreading is a great way to ensure that all thoughts and comments are cohesive, to make sure it makes sense to an outside reader. Be sure the review comes full circle by explaining it, giving an honest review and making recommendations. 

 

Do book reviews come in handy? 

The short answer, yes! Book reviews give a personal, well -written opinion on books. These reviews help encourage other readers to go out on a limb and read something new! The book review is a great way to give an overall explanation, which can help readers determine if the books are meant for them. 

 

We encourage students and teachers to step outside of their comfort zone, and write a book review on the next book they read whether for pleasure, or educational purposes!

How Your School Can Prepare for a Natural Disaster https://www.textbookhub.com/how-your-school-can-prepare-for-a-natural-disaster/ https://www.textbookhub.com/how-your-school-can-prepare-for-a-natural-disaster/#respond Tue, 18 Oct 2022 01:23:12 +0000 https://www.textbookhub.com/?p=3747   With Southwest Florida recently experiencing Hurricane Ian, it is apparent how much natural disasters can affect our education communities within the blink of an eye.

With Southwest Florida recently experiencing Hurricane Ian, it is apparent how much natural disasters can affect our education communities within the blink of an eye. We can’t do much of anything to prevent a natural disaster, that’s just mother nature doing what she does. However, we can do our best to have strategic plans put into place when disaster strikes.

 

Educational facilities play a much larger role than just educating the youth. School systems are responsible for, yes, educating children, but also for providing a safe, comfortable, clean environment for all who enter. 

 

Schools also play the role of being a social outlet, as students interact with other students, as well as teacher and staff members. These social interactions may not always be available to some students outside of school which makes students being in school vital for their development. Social interactions affect a child’s mental health state. 

 

Without all of these things, a child can be faced with some serious predicaments. The good thing is there are resources that your community can take advantage of when a natural disaster affects your community, thanks to the Department of Education.

  • The Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE) Technical Assistance provides assistance through grant programs to support grantees and help with K-12 educational needs. This assistance helps with restarting operations, re-enrolling students, and reopening elementary and secondary educational institutions after any type of natural disaster. OESE provides an extensive amount of resources including websites, webinars, documents and other tools to provide support to K-12 education programs.
  • Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA) | Disaster Planning and Trauma Response Page is a great resource that provides links and educational material from federal agencies and national organizations to help families and children when disaster hits.
  • The Center for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS): Developed a guide that describes the use of a multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) to support students, families, and educators the resources they need as they transition back to school after a natural disaster. These resources are for the overall health and safety of students to protect their emotional, social and physical well being. The key factor here is this guide helps students to return to schools, and get back to normal as soon as possible.

 

The above resources are meant to be used, but we encourage your community and school to start doing their own research for how to be strategic when natural disaster strikes. If Hurricane Ian has taught us anything, it is you can never be fully prepared, and the unthinkable is still possible! 

 

We encourage you to come together within your communities and schools to prepare for different natural disaster scenarios to protect the well being of your students.

In today’s society there is a lot of pressure, stress, anxiety and a handful of other emotions that come with being a student. Expectations from parents and teachers, the peer pressure from others and the internet can leave a child feeling overwhelmed very quickly.  At this point in the semester, students have hopefully found a well balanced routine that helps maintain their mental health. Routines help individuals stay on track in more ways than one which can keep emotions calm. However, this isn’t to say that things don’t come by surprise. Sometimes emotions get overwhelming, so let’s talk about how students can find ways to manage their emotions. Below are five ways students can manage their emotions.

 

  1. Take a deep breath. Sometimes taking a deep breath is one of the fastest ways to navigate through what the human body and mind feels. Deep breathing has multiple benefits. One of those benefits being calming the mind and the nervous system. Taking a deep breath helps reset the moment, it allows for peace to overcome the situation. It helps individuals to step back and take a look at the bigger picture.
  2. Use a planner. Utilizing a planner is a great way to help keep priorities, tasks and goals straight. Sometimes when there is too much on one’s plate, they begin to stress. When stress is added to any situation,emotions can become heightened, sooner rather than later. By using a planner, it helps manage emotions ahead of time without even knowing it! It allows students to stay focused on each day, without getting overwhelmed by the whole picture.
  3. Taking time to relax. While students have the stress of a social life, academics, extra curricular, a home life, etc, it is important for them to find time in each day to solely focus on themselves without outside distractions.  If students don’t take time to relax, before they know it they can be exploding with emotions. It’s important to find joy in getting outside, reading,watching movies and much more!
  4. Find someone to relate to. Being able to talk and open up to someone about what you’re feeling is a key factor into managing your emotions. Growing up can be lonely at times, especially when children get into their own heads. It’s good for children to get out of their own heads, and converse with someone else. Talking to someone may be just what is needed to realize for some they are in similar situations. Finding someone to relate to helps give not only perspective, but a difference of opinion as well. Sometimes we all need that.
  5. Daily Check-Ins. The importance of a mental health check every day helps cope with emotions in a healthy way. Rather than letting emotions build up, releasing them everyday is the smart choice. In the morning or evening, students should recap their day to gauge what they qre feeling like. This can also set up for the next day’s tone.

 

Once students find healthy ways to manage their emotions, they may be more involved with their academics and extracurriculars at hand. The overall health and success of the student should be what comes first!

September 15th marks the beginning of National Hispanic American Heritage Month. The United States is home to many Hispanic Americans with heritage roots all across the globe. September 15th through October 15th is a special time to recognize and honor those with Hispanic heritage. 

 

Why celebrate National Hispanic American Heritage Month?

“National Hispanic American Heritage month kicks off celebratory festivities because September 15th is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Also, Columbus Day or Día de la Raza, which is October 12, falls within this 30 day period”(National Hispanic American Heritage Month, https://www.hispanicheritagemonth.gov/about/).

 

Ways to Celebrate in the Classroom 

There is so much that goes into Hispanic culture, including: cuisine, history, literature  and arts, which means plenty of activities to celebrate in the classroom! You can prepare Hispanic food, read poems by Hispanic poets, have an educated discussion, listen to Hispanic music while crafting and so much more! 

Depending on what grade is being taught, these activities will coordinate with certain ages compared to others. A younger student will most likely comprehend an educated craft more so than a scholarly poem. Older grades will probably react better to the poem. 

As long as children are being educated about National Hispanci American Heritage Month, there really is no right or wrong answer on how to celebrate! If there is a Latino teacher or student in the classroom, maybe they too would like to share their culture from their experience! 

 

Is celebrating National Hispanic American Heritage important?

Yes! Implementing diversity and equality into our classrooms is a top priority. It is important to ensure that everyone feels equal and represented in a community setting. As individuals, we all have our differences that make us unique, but our diversity is what makes us so special. There may be students in a classroom who feel unrepresented. Teaching the class about specific heritages can allow for a deeper, more inclusive understanding. 

 

National Hispanic American Heritage does not have to go away on October 15th, it should be discussed all year long. However, it is beneficial to teach about it during its recognized month. 

We would love to hear what materials and activities you have planned to celebrate in your classroom!

Leaving middle school, and heading into high school can be a big change for a lot of students. They may not be sure what to expect, and have possibly heard horror stories about freshmen. It’s not until students get into the swing of high school, until they learn that they love everything that is included with being a high school student.

 

Included in things that are a staple for high school students is reading. Whether this reading is required for a project, group reading, summer reading or reading for a book project, it’s important students understand that reading is for their overall development.

 

We’ve compiled a list of the classics that every high school aged student should read! 

 

To Kill a MockingBird

This classic, written by Harper Lee, brings to light issues of race, and intellectual disabilities in the early 1900s, which wasn’t a  common book theme  for the 1960s, which was when it was published. By bringing to light these themes, readers are intrigued that something that happened years ago can still be understood in today’s time! 

 

The Great Gatsby

Written by Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby is another classic often found in the classroom. This novel focuses on social statuses, love and power. The novel is so popular as there are multiple themes, including the American Dream, and going from rags to riches. 

 

Romeo and Juliet

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is the ultimate love story. Dating back to the late 1500s, the story leaves impressions on everyone who reads it. The love story is relevant today as society, love and human interaction are similar in ways.

 

The Odyssey 

Written by Homer in the eighth century, The Odyssey is a more challenging book to understand, which makes it a good book to break down and discuss. The book follows Odysseus, and teaches many life lessons along the way from his encounters. 

 

Night 

An award winning book, written by Elie Wiesel, a holocaust survivor is read across America today in high school classrooms. With the Holocaust being a major event in history, that most are aware of, this book changes readers ways of thinking by being in a survivor’s shoes, and learning his stories.

 

These books are common across the United States, as they are books that allow for conversation to be had, context to be broken down and interpretation to be explored. All of these books include common themes that are still relatable today, which is why they became so successful. 

 

Encourage students to add these reads to their leisure booklist, if as a teacher, you do not require them to read these books.

 

Happy reading!

Being a teacher means educating, learning, growing, being creative, having fun and thinking outside of the box! Teachers wear many hats, and we’re so grateful for this! With being so versatile in the classroom, it is so easy to want to have the urge to show off all that teachers do! 

 

Creating a social media account as a teacher can open up a lot of doors, but still may not be something that you are committed to. Just like everything else, a teacher having a social media account has its list of pros and cons. 

 

Some of the biggest cons include sharing content that isn’t too personal to each student, and coming to terms with being vulnerable.

 

However, the pros can be endless! Social media can allow teachers’ creative brains to thrive. Teacher social media accounts can be beneficial as they: 

  • Open up new opportunities to meet other teachers
  • Create their own content
  • Grow as a teacher
  • Inspire others, and be inspired 
  • Share classroom decor 
  • Educate others
  • Professional development 
  • Provide an additional space to keep colleagues, teachers and students updated, if they choose to do so 

 

Whether or not you choose to have a social media account for your classroom tips and tricks is totally up to you! Don’t feel as though you’re behind if you don’t have one, it’s all about what works best for you! 

 

Be sure that if you do decide to create a social media account that you have parental consent if you choose to post about your students. In today’s time, the internet can be a dangerous game, so it is crucial that you have parental consent. However, if you aren’t posting about your students, there is no need to worry about that! 

 

If you’re ready to create your social media account, what kind of educational content are you going to share with your audience?

Education is one of those things that is constantly changing and evolving. In recent years, we have been taught that student’s don’t even have to be in a brick and mortar educational institution to learn. They can do it from anywhere! Here at TextbookHub, that’s what we are all about learning digital from anywhere! This has let students have some of the power in their hands!

 

 We are also starting to see more behavioral and emotional issues in the classroom, meaning that children may not do well in the social setting of a classroom, with one traditional teacher. By allowing children to work from anywhere, we have allowed them to take charge of their learning. There can be pros and cons to both brick and mortar, and digital learning environments. It all comes down to what will benefit each individual child. 

 

It can be frustrating for a student when a teacher doesn’t fully understand them and their needs. Giving students the power of teaching themselves 

 

By learning in a digital environment, where students hold the power, students will also have a lot less stress because all of their materials will be in one place. They will be able to easily access their books and assignments for all of their classes.

 

Giving students the power to make decisions about their education teaches them life lessons, as well as the curriculum they are learning. They are able to prioritize, learn organization, multitask and balance all on top of being a student! 

 

Even if students don’t do all of their learning in a digital environment, there are still ways to give the power and choice when it comes to certain things to enhance their learning.

 

How do you give your students more freedom when it comes to their learning?

Depending on the student, some love reading and some would rather do many other things. No matter the student, reading is something that needs to be implemented more, whether it’s for pleasure or credit. 

 

Teachers don’t make their students read for no good reason, in fact they have plenty of good reasons. From both experience and common knowledge, teachers know that reading has multiple benefits. Some of the benefits include: 

  • Introducing new words to one’s vocabulary
  • Broadening creativity
  • Developing usage of context clues
  • Teaching critical thinking
  • Boosting mood
  • Calming the nerves
  • Etc.

 

Whether teachers require or encourage students to read, they’ve done the right thing. While summer breaks consist of relaxing, hanging out with friends, eating ice cream, working and going on trips, it’s important that student’s minds stay focused and sharp for their return to school in the fall. When students read, they are keeping their mind conditioned for further development. 

 

If a teacher never requires summer reading, it’s up to the parents and guardians to instill it into daily or weekly routine for the betterment of the student. On the other hand, maybe a teacher did assign reading. Parents can help out their children by offering some sort of reward for participating in summer reading, and staying on track with their school work even over summer break. 

 

Rewards can be anything that the parent deems practical, here are a few ideas:

  • A weekly allowance.
  • Ice cream after dinner.
  • An end of summer trip.
  • More screen time. 
  • A shopping trip.
  • A weekly minigolf session.
  • Etc.

 

The whole point is to encourage children to read more, even if it is not required of them. Reading doesn’t have to be looked at as boring. There are so many different genres for students to choose from. It’s important for them to find a book that is of interest to them because it will give them the urge to read more, compared to something that they have no interest in at all. 

 

Parents can take their children to the local book store, or order something digitally for their kindles or iPads at the convenience of their fingertips. The great news is that a lot of titles come in a paperback, or a digital version. This makes accessing books so much easier! 

 

This blog has covered why reading is important, and how to incentivize children to read more over summer break! 

 

Who has a good book recommendation?!
