One Book, One City brings together diverse societies by promoting a culture of reading and discussion. Hickenlooper says, “We, as a city, are facing many great challenges that will require important decisions to shape our future. We can’t make those decisions unless we come together as a community. That is what One Book, One Denver seeks to do: to not only promote a culture of reading- but to provide shared experiences and shared opportunities that strengthen our sense of community.” The community of Fort Morgan would benefit from the One City/One Book project because some books can give an understanding of other cultures, the environment that would be created because of reading the book as a community, and summer reading promotes education.
Lots of communities are thinking about getting involved in a one city one book idea despite all of the success it may have had I don’t think that the city of Fort morgan would benefit by having one city one book come to this town because of lots of different reasons. Having one book for the whole town to read would not work out for multiple reasons. There are lots of studies around that show not enough people participate in the all community read especially in such a small town there would be hardly anybody involved in the project. Another reason I don't think this project around the town would work is because people are way too sensitive about some subjects and would not be willing to read a book about what they are sensitive about. The third reason is that a lot of people are on a different reading level and not wealthy enough to be able to get the book or afford to get the book.
Proposal one and proposal two both suggest a specific type of fundraiser, include certain specifics on how to conduct the fundraiser, and include ideas about the people the fundraiser would appeal to. Proposal one suggests that the prime way to get people invested in the library is by presenting them with the joy of reading. For this reason, proposal one believes the library should hold a book sale, and in this book sale, people could donate books they no longer have a want for, and the librarians could find books the library no longer needs. Furthermore, the books should be inexpensive so more people would be willing to buy them. For example, fifty cents for paperback books and two dollars for hardcover books. According to the first proposal, this book sale would appeal to people of all ages from children to the elderly, and if visitors do not find a book of their liking there
Literacy is a vital part of all later learning. Because of this, the children will engage in hands on activities that relates to what they have read and give them opportunities to make up their own versions, as well as make up their own stories. They will have a large group story time and a partner reading time. An ample variety of books will be available at all times. Signs with words and pictures will be posted around the classroom showing, daily activities, objects that are used daily, and the placement of toys and
In Henry’s research he discovered that many schools have “in-depth” projects for the summer reading and because they are difficult “time perhaps [is] taken away from reading.” Projects can be overwhelming so students may find summer reading even
Literature if used correctly can enhance a child’s life. It can become a valuable tool in helping children to understand their home, communities and the world in which they live. Through literature children’s vocabulary, imaginations, and self understanding is built. Children should be exposed to literature that is age appropriate and within the context of learning respect for themselves and others by the diversity of the books. My literature plan is based upon multicultural diversity which reinforces reading readiness, read-along that emphasis multicultural songs and rhymes, build self esteem through art, music and movement and responses to literature.
Kansas has a variety of things to offer the world. This book could include the fact that the world’s tallest water slide is located in Kansas City, Kansas. Soccer is becoming more popular around the world every day, and it just so happens that the soccer capital of America is located in Kansas City, Kansas. The Wizard of Oz is a very popular movie among younger kids, and Dorothy’s house is located in Liberal, Kansas. Also all of the pictures and writings in our book was all created by thirteen and fourteen-year-old kids that are from Kansas. Your company can benefit from adding Kansas to the series because there are over 200,000 kids under the age of five living in Kansas who would love to have a book written after their state. There are so many children in the state of Kansas, and adding Kansas to the series would make you a profit.
Children’s learning and development is influenced by their interaction with adults and other children, the physical environment and the philosophy and resources in the service, (McLachlan, Nicholson, Fielding-Barnsley, Mercer, & Ohi, 2013). Literacy-rich environments, need to create optimal conditions for children’s personal expressions of meaning: “What do I know? What am I thinking? What am I curious about?”. Children should walk into their learning environment and be enticed to explore the elements of reading, writing, listening and speaking, (McLachlan, Nicholson, Fielding-Barnsley, Mercer, & Ohi, 2013). Children need access to interesting books and materials – both in print and online. When students are provided with well-designed classroom libraries, they interact more with books, spend more time reading (or trying to read), exhibit more positive attitudes toward reading, and exhibit higher levels of reading achievement, (McLachlan, Nicholson, Fielding-Barnsley, Mercer, & Ohi, 2013). If children are not provided with access to interesting books that they want to read and can read with success, they will never reach their full literacy potential (Gambrell, Malloy, & Mazzoni,
“The Lonely, Good Company of Books” by Richard Rodriguez, is an expressive narration about the importance of learning through reading. The essay is a narration of his life from his early school years to high school and how he struggled with the general belief that reading books are the main source of education. “Open the doors of your mind with books” (172) he quotes from a poster over his teacher’s desk. He learned early on that books were the key to academic success. Even though his bilingual parents never read for pleasure, they instilled in him the value of books. This idea was repeated by his teachers that reading was the main activity of learning.
“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are,” (Cooley). Throughout our lives, reading has impacted us in many ways. Often times books give people different perspectives on their lives. People with high stress levels often find comfort in reading books to take their mind off of their concerns. Sometimes, people just need to take a step back from their lives and relax for a while; therefore, reading is a great tool. In fact, all kinds of books have also helped me become a better writer. There are many different books that have impacted me over the years.
New High School for Summit City project is thoroughly communicated to all members involved and is located in the north section of Summit City, Ontario. The owner of this project is Prince Edward Regional Board of Education. Summit City has two public high schools and the Board of Education applied for ministry approval for the construction of a new education facility, with a total of $19,000,000. The existing schools would have to be teared down, costing them a total of $2,600,000, so that one site can be sold to build a condominium and the other site can be used to the board of educational regional office. I am appointed to give the owner, Prince Edward Regional Board of Education, an idea of which is the best project delivery methods for this kind of case scenario. The three methods of project delivery are:
5. Where are the statutes regulating city comprehensive plans for your state? Identify the full citation (ex: Title X, Chapter X, Article X-XX.X) and provide a link to the appropriate articles.
Through the course, I learned that there are many benefits of reading books to children. Children would improve their communicative skills by talking about their favorite part of the story. Children would respect each other by taking turns. They would improve their cognitive skills by predicting the events of a story. Moreover, reading books would expand children’s vocabularies by introducing new words.
In the 19th century pyrmont was known to be a slum area. After the second world war pyrmount started to decompose when industries closed down and the locals moved to other suburbs. The government at the time initiated the Better Cities Program to renovate the place. The City West Development Corporation was developed with the mission to replace the community in 1992. In 1999 the responsibility to renew the place was given to the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority. This led pyrmount to a bigger community of 13,000 by 2004. There was also an increase of trade with businesseses moving back into the suburb. There was a total of 22,000 employees. Nearly all industrial function is gone from the community and is now renewed by low and high rise residential
