The Death of an Elder is like a Burning Library! Ivorian proverb
next that, The System is not training Librarians for the Future, and When the Power is down, how essential Books will Become!
This down time period at home for students offers the perfect opportunity to inspire and to encourage reading. I feel that the best way to address the literacy issues with our children today, especially with all of their distractions, is through illustration.
Students writing, illustrating and reading theirs and other students' writings may encourage and inspire others to begin reading, much like how when they go home with a cold infecting everyone in the house.
To ignore the power offered by communicating through the social media websites, reminded me of the old saying, "If you want to hide something from a Negro put it in a book." Today, the internet should be our method of sharing information just like how our ancestors used the beating of the drums and the sending of smoke signals to communicate among themselves.
Every one of us knows someone who has accomplished a goal, achieved recognition, promoting and marketing their goods and services, that we can be using the internet for its free Advertising platform.
