    Social Media's Impact on Literacy Live Panel Discussion from St. George Book Fe

    in Entertainment

    The St. George Book Festival is celebrating its 10th Anniversary.

    As part of this year's activities, the St. George Book Festival has asked its community one very important questions many readers, teachers and libraries have asked, "What is Social Media’s Impact on Literacy?"

    The St. George Book Festival will be airing live here on BlogTalkRadio's featured World of Ink Network on Wednesday, October 21, 2015, starting at 5 pm Pacific - 6 pm Mountain - 7 pm Centeral - 8 pm Eastern and will offer a free community forum on “Social Media’s Impact on Literacy.”

    The National Assessment of Adult Literacy defines literacy as "using printed and written information to function in society, to achieve one’s goals, and to develop one’s knowledge and potential."  The illiteracy skill level is based on a fourth-grade level. The reason for the reference to the fourth-grade level mentioned above is that in nearly all U.S. schools, the only reading taught after the fourth grade is remedial reading. If that is all they can read, however, they are functionally illiterate. This means about 23% of the national U.S. population falls under the category functionally illterate.

    The discussion will take place at DXATC, 610 S. Airport Road in St. George at 6 pm Moutain fon October 21, 2015 for those who live in the area. Panel members include Lenore Madden, Casie Forbes, Stace Hall, Kristy Pike, and students of DSU. This discussion will tackle the expanding role in Social Media on literacy.

                            For more information on these and other events associated with the 10th Annual St. George Book Festival, please go to www.stgeorgebookfestival.org

    Plantation Literacy : Africa The Orginal Plantation

    in Real Estate

    Today on "It's My House" we shall continue our series on Plantation Literacy 101. 

    Our topic today is:  "Africa - The Original Plantation"

    For those of you who have missed the "definition" of PLANTATION it is a "farm system that has been monetized".

    Africa via its almost infinite "plantation systems" have been a money maker for many people in many nations. Just to name a few:

    Coffee Plantations
    Tea Plantations
    Rubber Plantations
    Diamonds Mines (Mines are "Underground Plantations")
    Gold Mines

    We shall explain "The 1 Mile Radius Rule" plus we shall give some food for thought when it comes to race.

    White Supremacy Redefined.........when black people do not take advantage of the opportunites that they are surrounded by and protect and regulate those opportunities, then someone else comes in and does so.

    Solving Adult and Family Literacy with Travis DiNicola of Indy Reads

    in Moms and Family

    The National Center for Family Literacy reports that research shows children’s literacy levels are strongly linked to the literacy levels of their parents, especially their mothers. Literate adults raise healthier and more successful children.

    The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 defines literacy as an individual’s ability to read, write, speak English, and compute and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job and in society, to achieve one’s goals, and develop one’s knowledge and potential.. 

    The term functional illiteracy refers to those individuals who, even knowing how to read and write simple phrases, do not have the basic aptitudes to satisfy the demands of their daily needs nor to develop themselves personally and professionally.

    Indy Reads is a literacy nonprofit transforming lives in Indianapolis. Indy Writes Books, unites local authors in a cross-genre anthology celebrating the love of reading. The book features fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and puzzles centered around bookstores and reading. Featuring best-selling authors John Green and Dan Wakefield. All proceeds from Indy Writes Books support Indy Reads’ adult and family literacy programs in Indiana.

    Join Travis DiNicola, the executive director of Indy Reads, and me on Tuesday, September 8, 10-11 A.M. CT US. We will be discussing how they're changing lives through the love for literature/reading.
