  •  Sparknotes for Goodnight Moon
      
    Context
     
    America after the Great War was full of economic prosperity and social upheaval. Margaret Wise Brown, renowned children's book author, made it her life's goal to both comfort the youth of the era and expose the flaws of human advancement through her didactic work. In Goodnight Moon, Brown explores the relationship between a young bunny and his material possessions set against the backdrop of the Cold War. The book was met with critical and commercial success. Margaret Wise Brown's work, which has been translated into countless languages and has sold over 40 million copies, still resonates with children's librarians and counter-culture revolutionaries for its duality as good-natured poetry and allegory of human alienation.

    Possible Essay Questions
     
    1) Analyze the scene in which the bunny says goodnight to the lighthouse in relationship with the rest of the book. Cite textual evidence whenever possible.
     
    2) Compare and contrast Goodnight Moon with The Sun Also Rises. Whose sentences are simpler: Brown's or Hemingway's?
     
    3) What have you said goodnight to? Analyze what that says about you. Try not to cry.
     
  • Not just looking at fads and trends…
    Looking at shift in paradigms
  • The first dimensional shift has to do with literacy and how it is evolving. Literacy today involves not only text, but also image and screen literacy. The ability to "read" multimedia texts and to feel comfortable with new, multiple-media genres is decidedly nontrivial.
    GROWING UP DIGITAL
    John Seeley Brown

    The developmental psychologist Jerome Bruner made a brilliant observation years ago when he said we can teach people about a subject matter like physics-its concepts, conceptual frameworks, its facts-and provide them with explicit knowledge of the field, but being a physicist involves a lot more than getting all the answers right at the end of each chapter.
    John Seeley Brown
  • Decoding vs. Reading
  • Likewise, we can provide kids with all of the tools and skills of reading but not transform them into readers. Becoming a reader takes more than skills.

  • What is METAFICTION?
    Simply, it is fiction ABOUT fiction
    A book that reflects on what a book IS
    Blurs the boundaries of STORY
    Can also include METAPICTURES (pictures that reflect upon nature of pictures)
