Naked Reading Ccisd

  1. 1. CONNECTING WITH TWEENS<br />NAKED READING<br />1<br />
  2. 2. 2<br />
  3. 3. 3<br />
  4. 4.
  5. 5. Bulwer-Lyttonworst first lineannual contest2009 winners<br />
  6. 6. Folks say that if you listen real close at the height of the full moon, when the wind is blowin&apos; off Nantucket Sound from the nor&apos; east and the dogs are howlin&apos; for no earthly reason, you can hear the awful screams of the crew of the &quot;Ellie May,&quot; a sturdy whaler Captained by John McTavish; for it was on just such a night when the rum was flowin&apos; and, Davey Jones be damned, big John brought his men on deck for the first of several screaming contests.<br />
  7. 7. The wind dry-shaved the cracked earth like a dull razor--the double edge kind from the plastic bag that you shouldn&apos;t use more than twice, but you do; but Trevor Earp had to face it as he started the second morning of his hopeless search for Drover, the Irish Wolfhound he had found as a pup near death from a fight with a prairie dog and nursed back to health, stolen by a traveling circus so that the monkey would have something to ride. <br />
  8. 8. How best to pluck the exquisite Toothpick of Ramses from between a pair of acrimonious vipers before the demonic Guards of Nicobar returned should have held Indy&apos;s full attention, but in the back of his mind he still wondered why all the others who had agreed to take part in his wife&apos;s holiday scavenger hunt had been assigned to find stuff like a Phillips screwdriver or blue masking tape. <br />
  9. 9. She walked into my office on legs as long as one of those long-legged birds that you see in Florida - the pink ones, not the white ones - except that she was standing on both of them, not just one of them, like those birds, the pink ones, and she wasn&apos;t wearing pink, but I knew right away that she was trouble, which those birds usually aren&apos;t. <br />
  10. 10. Towards the dragon&apos;s lair the fellowship marched -- a noble human prince, a fair elf, a surly dwarf, and a disheveled copyright attorney who was frantically trying to find a way to differentiate this story from &quot;Lord of the Rings.&quot; <br />
  11. 11. On a fine summer morning during the days of the Puritans, the prison door in the small New England town of B----n opened to release a convicted adulteress, the Scarlet Letter A embroidered on her dress, along with the Scarlet Letters B through J, a veritable McGuffey&apos;s Reader of Scarlet Letters, one for each little tyke waiting for her at the gate. <br />
  12. 12. Melinda woke up suddenly to the sound of her trailer being pounded with wind and hail, and she couldn&apos;t help thinking that if she had only put her prized hog up for adoption last May, none of this would be happening, no one would have gotten hurt, and she wouldn&apos;t be left with only nine toes, or be living in a mobile home park in Nebraska with a second-rate trapeze artist named Fred. <br />
  13. 13. Close your eyes (yes… close your eyes) and take a moment to think back on… <br /><ul><li> a happy memory from when you were 10 years old
  14. 14. a sad memory from when you were 11 years old
  15. 15. an embarrassing memory from when you were 12 years old
  16. 16. a great memory from when you were 13 years old
  17. 17. a “traumatic” memory from when you were 14 years old</li></ul>13<br />
  18. 18. Now take a moment to share one of those memories with the person to your right and left….<br />How different were your memories from the person next to you? They may have been very different or there may have been some similarities.<br />14<br />
  19. 19. There are no cookie-cutter adolescent experiences. Some of these things will apply to the tweens and early teens you know and some of them won’t.<br />15<br />
  20. 20. Defining Tweens<br />Tweens is a fluid definition  meaning that different cognitive, emotional, and social developments happen at different rates in different adolescents. Some 10 year olds may have begun physically developing while others may not see these changes until they are 13. <br />Anderson, 2007<br />16<br />
  21. 21. What’s going on physically?<br />17<br />
  22. 22. Some Physical Basics<br />Tweens and early teens are being bombarded by hormones and begin to develop reproductively (i.e. breasts, pubic hair, etc.)*<br />Many experience a growth surge. Guys get taller, and girls get rounder.<br />Many experience a hormonal rollercoaster – becoming moody and seemingly different over night.<br />Pruitt, 1999<br />18<br />
  23. 23. What’s going on psychologically?<br />19<br />
  24. 24. Some Psychological Basics<br />Their reasoning capabilities rise to new levels of complexity.<br />The adolescent is learning how to handle adult responsibilities.<br />By age 12, he or she will be able to think about possibilities, consider hypotheses, think ahead, consider the thought process, and think beyond conventional limits.<br />Pruitt, 1999<br />20<br />
  25. 25. More Psychological Basics<br />Increased ability to use abstract verbal concepts.<br />Increased ability to engage in abstract thought to engage in issues like politics, religion and morality.<br />During the middle school years, moral development continues to evolve as the adolescent becomes more aware the relationship between the individual and society.<br />Pruitt, 1999<br />21<br />
  26. 26. What’s going on socially?<br />22<br />
  27. 27. Social Development Basics<br />Expected increase in freedom<br />Move away from family toward peers<br />Likely to have best friends of the similar social and ethnic backgrounds.<br />In 7th grade, the above holds true PLUS they want friends with similar attitudes and values.<br />Peer approval and acceptance grows more important.<br />Pruitt, 1999<br />23<br />
  28. 28. Social Development Basics<br />Rely on friends for everything from companionship to understanding.<br />In middle school, the more a child is pressured by peers, the greater the chance he or she will go along or join in.<br />Pruitt, 1999<br />24<br />
  29. 29. Many tweens and early teens successfully navigate the rocky road of adolescence. Others struggle to find themselves and to fit in…<br />25<br />
  30. 30. Besides being welcoming places to these often unlovable library customers without a place (self identified as too mature for the children’s section and system defined as too young for the teen books), having literature that speaks to them is one of the most important things that we do...<br />26<br />
  31. 31. Anderson, S. (2007). Serving young teens and ‘tweens. Westport, CT: Libraries Unlimited.<br />American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. (1999).

  169. 169. 165<br />There are many ways to describe Ms. Underdorf.<br /> <br />She was brilliant and joyous, and she believed-probably correctly-that libraries contain the answers to everything, and that if you can’t find the information you seek in the library, then such information probably does not exist in this or any other parallel universe now or ever to be known.<br /> <br />She was thoughtful and kind and always believed the best of everybody. She was, above all else, a master librarian and knew where to find any book on any subject in the shortest possible time.<br /> <br />And she was wonderfully unhinged…<br /> <br />And so the Amazing Armadillo.<br />
