How I Learned Geography | Uri Shulevitz
post image

#UCFLAE3414F19

(Author/Illust: Uri Shulevitz)

This MF is about how a young boy uses the power of his imagination to cope with his hunger and misery as he explores new and exotic places all around the world. The images are based on the author‘s own childhood memories of living in poverty as a refugee during World War II. This would be great as a RA so you could showcase all of the detailed art depicting different scenery as well.

EL Strategy 8: Use direct instruction: Modeling, explaining, scaffolding, name the strategy and show how to use it.

UDL Principle 3.3: Guide information processing and visualization.

It won't stop gushing about the so-called "Age of Exploration" and which white guy "discovered" (my scare quotes, decidedly not the author's) this or that already-inhabited landmass. "Unknown" this, "uncharted" that. I didn't want this much imperialist propaganda with my silly conspiracy story, fuck you very much.

batsy Oh damn. I was looking forward to this. 7d
Bertha_Mason @batsy I'm sorry :( 7d
batsy No, it's OK! I may or may not still read it but it's good to be prepared for the #casualimperialism 7d

I really wanted to like this- and Ma Zhi's storyline was pretty interesting- but it just fell short over and over. I was disappointed.

#BookHaul #Pirates #Maps #Fantasy

From attending a ComicCon last year and sitting in on Kevin J Anderson‘s talk, he shared the plot of his nautical book, which totally seemed up my alley; pictured here. I found a copy at #SHPL used book store!

And found another children‘s pirate book to add to the shelf! 🏴‍☠️

quote
Bertha_Mason

"Once Molly and Taer's story begins to take definitive shape, it quickly fizzles into absurdity, like a map of a world with slightly distorted proportions--almost normal looking at first, but on a second viewing, a terrible deviation, a ghost of a place that never was, a land that couldn't be, a burning and terrible world beneath everything that we know to be real."
