Study: Students Don't Learn As Well Reading Screens As They Do Reading Print

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 21:31:34 +0000

(image) As researchers in learning and text comprehension, our recent work has focused on the differences between reading print and digital media. While new forms of classroom technology like digital textbooks are more accessible and portable, it would be wrong to assume that students will automatically be better served by digital reading simply because they prefer […]trade-in-used-textbooks-and-get-up-to-80-of-their-value-in-an-amazon-gift-card

How Opera Made The "Liabilities" In My Life Into Virtues

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 21:01:36 +0000

(image) "The system of values that is manhood in the American south held up as its virtues firmness, reserve, self-containment, reticence, mastery of emotion. I longed to adhere to this system, but however hard I tried, I failed. I felt too much. I was prone to sudden rushes of emotion, to enthusiasms, affections, to tears... When […]3757

The Real Problem With Making Good Movies Today Isn't "Rotten Tomatoes." It's The Audiences Hollywood Is Trying To Capture

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 20:32:18 +0000

(image) "The real problem is much bigger than Rotten Tomatoes—it’s that so much of Hollywood is now fixated on capturing the widest audience possible with every film. Blockbuster action movies, superhero franchises, jolty horror pictures, and animated family films that can draw large crowds are the order of the day. Even mother!, which was light on actual […]lead_960

Lauren Gunderson Is America's Most-Produced Playwright This Season. So Why Don't You Know About Her?

The Ways We Abuse Art Are Terrible. There Are Plenty Of Culprits To Blame

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 18:32:09 +0000

(image) Why make art when buyers treat works as an alternative currency, hiding them away like bullion bars in storage facilities? Can anything be done about questionable corporations and oppressive regimes using contemporary art to generate a spot of positive PR for themselves? And what links can be made between fuzzy surveillance images and abstract art?3656

Many Wonderful Writers Have Been Lost To History. Christopher Fowler Looks At Reasons Why

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 17:28:38 +0000

(image) Ultimately, the reasons for a noteworthy author’s obscurity are as various as the authors themselves. Fowler’s findings show that other contributing factors seem to include underrating their own work, reclusiveness, and genre (with notable exceptions, comic writers tend not to be taken seriously enough to preserve). The caprices of fashion hit populist fiction especially hard; […]p05jk9jp

Did Kenneth MacMillan Revolutionize British Ballet Or Ruin It?

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 14:05:57 +0000

They think this country's classical ballet reached its pinnacle under the Apollonian hand of Frederick Ashton, before MacMillan stomped in with his working-class neuroses and rape simulations and took ballet down to the psychological underworld."
