  44. 51. Dragon Dictation-annotating text
  45. 52. <ul><li>An Experiment: </li></ul><ul><li>Using Dragon Dictation while Reading </li></ul><ul><li>A Monster Calls </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Note I am not changing how the app recorded my observations. There are some errors, of course, but I do think it captured the heart of what I was attempting to do. You will notice that punctuation is not a strong suit of this app. However, think of the lesson waiting when kids do this. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>This is an annotation of my reading of Patrick Nessus (Ness’) a monster calls (A Monster Calls). I decided to use Dragon Dictation to show how simple it can be to have students annotate as they're reading without having to really pause to write down anything to reflect you really won't interrupt their reading nearly as much as they use an app such as Dragon dictation. </li></ul>
  46. 53. <ul><li>Patrick Ness wrote this book based on an idea of Shavon Dowd who sadly past way too soon in her career. This would've been her fifth book a monster calls what Patrick did was take the idea and go with it run with it. Make it his own and that is what he asks readers to do in the forward go run with it. Make it your own. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>And so we come to chapter 1 of the monster calls a monster showed up just after midnight as they do certainly an auspicious beginning what kind of monster will this be what will it do to change the life of our main character is name is Connor. The black and white illustrations by illustrator Jim K certainly do a great deal to enhance knowing the mystery but the threat that seems inherent in the story. </li></ul>
  47. 54. <ul><li>There's almost a paradox in the language at least in the opening chapter as Connors observing the monster as he comes together from the Yew tree in his backyard you have references to words like mighty but not terrifying or scary and we learn that month that Connor has seen worse monsters or at least envisioned worse. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>I'm going to shift now on my annotation from annotating as I'm reading the chapter to annotating as I finish reading the chapter. By the way it's probably important as your annotating text in teaching kids to annotate text to pay attention to chapter titles when authors go beyond Chapter 1 Chapter 2 to give you a title chances are there something significant about the words that they selected to have those chapters. </li></ul>
  48. 55. <ul><li>For chapter 3 we could start annotations by examining the title of the chapter which is simply school and asking students to provide some guesses or conclusions some implication some generalizations and inferences about what they think might happen as Connor goes to school are considering what has happened the night before his bedroom with the monster calling is real or what's happening in his life with his mother suffering from cancer. So what do we learn and chapter 3 and how does that create more of an air of mystery or perhaps define a little bit more the monster with him Connor is wrestling. we do learn the Connors being bullied at school that there's a student who picks on him almost as if he knows the Connors more vulnerable could just be part of the monster that Connor is seeing at night. </li></ul>
  49. 56. Annotating as a Teacher Now <ul><li>An interesting activity for a monster calls might be to take the double page spread illustrations project them for the kids and let them kind of give a summary of what they think the entire book will be about would be interesting to see how much the pictures tell the students and of course you can also my students to do a summary by simply reading the titles of the different chapters to see if they can somehow put together a summary of the book is well </li></ul>
  50. 57. Scaffolding-Brainstorming <ul><li>From dragon dictation. It would be a simple step then to create voice threats for students for example I could either use one of my phrases during imitation and use that as the beginning of the voice text for students or to put students in grapes each one of them would conduct their own voice thread and the others in the group would contribute to it and lots of different ways to use it. I'll try to figure some examples. </li></ul>
  51. 58. Application for Classroom <ul><li>I wonder if as we read aloud a book like a monster calls we could have students with Dragon dictation on their phones on their desks some iPad on the computer wherever we want half and they can quietly asked questions make predictions do this kinds of things that that are not necessarily annotating but nonetheless responding to the text as we're reading out loud. I wonder if we can do that without creating mayhem </li></ul>

  63. 74. There are many ways to describe Ms. Underdorf.   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.   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.   And she was wonderfully unhinged…   And so the Amazing Armadillo.
