June-my favorite month. It is so nice to have a bit of freedom! I am still doing school work as well as housework and yard work, but I am doing it on my own terms!
During the last week of school, our literacy coach shared some information she had gleaned from a literacy conference that she had recently attended. She shared a lot of great tidbits, but one that stuck with me was this: "Students comprehend text better when it is on paper, than when it is on a screen."
That was really interesting to me. I, personally, prefer a page to a screen, probably because I am not a "technology native". My kids get frustrated with me because I don't even like cell phones much. Here is a link to an interesting article from Scientific American regarding the question of comprehension being hampered by an electronic screen. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts .
Meantime, have a great summer!
