Go Away, Big Green Monster!‰ŰÓEd Emberley‰ŰŞs tale about a scary, multicolored monster‰ŰÓis used to help students build their reading fluency and word recognition skills.

After finishing the story, students are introduced to four different literacy center activities that include participating in a read along, building word families with story words, playing a memory game with color words from the story, and retelling story events using sentence strips. In the sessions that follow, students create their own artwork of the big green monster and use that artwork to help them write a story. Students use both self- and peer-editing to improve their writing. Completed stories are either published on the Internet or in a class book.

CP 18: Teaching In and Through the Arts
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

In the EL Education model, arts are celebrated as a central aspect of learning and life. Schools teach art as an academic discipline and also in core academic subjects, where it engages students in problem solving, planning, and perseverance. They celebrate the unique capacity of the arts to express truth, beauty, and joy. Student exhibitions of learning feature the arts along with other subjects. Schools are filled with student artwork, which is displayed in a way that honors the work. Artistic performances are points of pride for the school. Arts are often used as a window into disciplinary content in other academic subjects (e.g., ancient Greek architecture as an entry point to ancient Greek civilization, protest songs as a case study when learning about the civil rights movement). The arts also provide opportunities to explore diverse cultures, perspectives, and regions of the world.

Does Africa Need the International Monetary Fund?
Rating

International economist Dr Mark Ellyne asks, "Does Africa need the International Monetary Fund" in this Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts (GIPCA) Great TextsBig Questions presentation.tEllyne has spent over two decades analysing African economies. His lecture questions why Sub-Saharan economies have not performed well even with considerable IMF and World Bank support. Some view the IMF as part of an international conspiracy to impose Western economic hegemony on the developing world. Others see it as responsible international cooperation supported by advanced industrial countries to avoid another great depression. Is something wrong with the IMF's economic advice to Africa, or is something wrong with Africa? he asks. Dr. Ellyne joined the IMF in 1986 after completing his doctoral studies at Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies in the USA. He worked on the economies of 16 African countries during his 23 years of IMF service and lived in both Uganda and Zambia as IMF Resident Representative. He retired from the IMF in 2009 and is currently a visiting lecturer at the University of Cape Town's School of Economics.
