CLOSE READING: MAKING E-BOOKS BETTER CURRICULUM TOOLS
Our guests is John Williams, Follett Learning's Director of Digital Products.
Reading to learn has never been more important, and writing with skill and focus can open more doors than ever before. As for arithmetic, well we all know that isn’t going anywhere any time soon. But in order to move forward into a brave new world of digital learning, we cannot forget the past, and at its heart are books. Reading and gaining a deep understanding of what is read is not exactly where Facebook posts, Tweets and dramatic headlines are taking us, but the essential skills of reading are the same. And so is learning to read for deeper understanding—close reading is more important than ever to better prepare students for what they will encounter in life.
Curling up with a good book isn’t as simple as it used to be. You can take your text on an e-book, between beautiful hardcovers, or with a little author recorded audio on the side. So much industry activity influences our choices before we even open the Amazon box, enter the neighborhood store or touch the tablet screen. Reading, writing and the book business sparks cutting-edge conversation on The Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson. A push for digital sales has the literary crowd sorting through a maze of blockbuster titles, multi-media content and indie bloggers turned print authors. Industry insiders reveal how all of this impacts the African American market in general and black book sites like aalbc.com. Executive producer of the "Book Look" and I am Barack Obama author Charisse Carney-Nunes joins Marcela Landres, editorial consultant and author of the e-book How Editors Think: The Real Reason They Rejected You to weigh in on how industry changes affect their craft. Find out if the pen or key stroke, is still mightier than the almighty dollar.It’s time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson delivers hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson...pull up a chair.
Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author Scott Pinsker joins me this week to talk about his book, The Second Coming: A Love Story
Two men claim to be the Second Coming of Christ. Each claims the other is Satan in disguise. But only one is telling the truth. In "The Second Coming: A Love Story," the devilish new novel by Scott Pinsker, the culture war between Red America and Blue America turns shockingly real when two self-declared saviors appear on earth. The first “messiah” attracts legions of liberal and secular-progressive followers with his message of New Age brotherhood, quickly becoming the darling of the left. The second “messiah” preaches fire-and-brimstone traditional Christianity, gaining a grassroots army of conservative worshipers ready to battle to the death. It’s finally happened: Red America and Blue America are headed for Armageddon! Novelist Scott Pinsker is a Tampa Bay-based celebrity publicist who has also written for FOXNews.com as a marketing expert. As Pinsker tells it: “Late one night I had an unsettling thought: If the Devil truly wanted to con mankind, he wouldn’t have a pitchfork and horns. All those horror movies have it wrong; a pitchfork and horns are bad marketing. Instead, his smartest strategy for activating new followers would be to appear as a holy man – and claim the faith of his target audience. Because if I were Satan’s publicist, that’s what I’d recommend.”
