Slide 10: 

Interview of a student How often to you do art projects? -As often as I can. It allows me to express what I am thinking in an easier way Why do you do art projects? I like knowing that I am capable of doing things that are different and art projects help me think of stories to write. Who helps you with your art? My teacher gets me started but she tells us to come up with our own ideas. What do you do when cant come up with an idea? My teacher has taught me to just explore in my own way and always try my hardest. What do you like to create? I like all types of projects. I especially like using scissors. How do you decide what kind of project you want to do? Sometimes we are given ideas but sometimes we are just given supplies and she lets us make whatever it is that we want.

Slide 11: 

In School Literary Participation Activity #1: Art Project What does it mean to do literacy in this activity? - In this activity by seeing and demonstrating this for the students it promotes an expression of creativity within their mind which promotes expression in other literary activities in the classroom including the written and read word. Explain the activity? The students are given a piece of paper with a line drawn down the middle. The students are then asked to construct a story on the page. This is the use of their imagination. What did the teacher do with this project? She gave the students an idea of what she had in mind but allowed each student to create their own. How did the students express new ideas The students glued pieces of construction paper to make a piece of art that they would be able to tell a story from and then they shared their story.

Slide 12: 

What Skills are necessary for the student to be successful? To be successful at this students need to be open to listening and not afraid to try new things What do you need to know to be successful at this activity You must be open for trying things You must be willing to stop and rethink ideas What motivates your students Encouragement Positive feedback What someone might say id they participated in this project? - “This was fun” “ I learned that I am capable of more things than I thought I was.

Slide 13: 

What does it mean to do literacy in a group? Each student is given a copy of the text and a set of questions The teacher reads aloud with the group so that she is their with them if they do not understand. How do you code break? You rely on the picture to understand what is going on in the story. You then use context clues to better understand and figure out what the vocabulary word is.

Slide 15: 

In School Theory The in school project is based upon the needs theory. For a child to be successful in school they have needs that must be satisfied to be successful. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs consist of physiological needs, safety needs, love and belonging, and self actualization. What Mrs. Stephan has done in her classroom is set up a system that allows three of these basic needs to be met. They have an understanding of what they need to know, they have their self esteem needs met and with the groups their need for belonging is met

Slide 16: 

Out of school Literary Practices HOUSE What is the focus group in the program House? The focus group is a group of doctors that are attempting solve difficult case loads. How many doctors are solving this case? There are four doctors working on the case that form their own group. What type of brainstorming activities do they use? They form charts They do discussion Use each other as sound boards to find ideas

Slide 17: 

What is the typical way that they find out if they have formed the right diagnosis? They use trial and error to realize if they are on the right track Are they always successful? No they spend most of each episode using the knowledge that they have gained to figure out what they are doing right. This leads the way to show the route to success in any occupation. In House there is a path of failures and attempts that can eventually lead to success. By not giving up lives are saved including the lives of those attempting to save others. Why is this show so popular? * House brings terms that the average person is not familiar with such as “dystonia” and uses both visualization and context description in a group discussion setting for the audience, and the viewer to understand.

Slide 18: 

House also brings the medical field and these doctors to more of a human level. House, the main doctor is injured and imperfect. Still he is relied on and trusted to make miracle diagnosis because he obtains the knowledge and skills that are needed. By doing this it also promotes the importance of both life experiences and schooling. Also brilliantly House debunks the idea that any disease is different. Society has slowly changed and it makes it such that diseases and other abnormalities that may have been looked at as so different now seem normal. The viewer walks away with a better understanding of the diversity of society. House: "You own a disease? Well, I'm sorry I missed the IPO on dengue fever."

Slide 21: 

What about house sparks your interest? I've been disabled for 20 years now. There are terms on House that are specific to my condition, but nearly no one else that I know is literate in this language. One day when I was watching House I heard the word Dystonia. My curiosity was piqued. See; Dystonia is the condition I live with , but I had never heard that word outside the doctor’s office. On this epidode Dystonia was decoded, explained, and explored along with a myriad of other obscure medical terminology, and suddenly diseases that everyone used to find incomprehensible were being exposed and the world informed included in this textual mystery. After that I was hooked because House makes Medicine interesting, and it is no longer about the disease but the textual literacy of the condition. Are you able to understand all of the language of the show? Did I go to medical school??? No!!... so I don’t know all the terms but the show makes a good attempt to put the obscure diseases, disorders, and conditions like mine into a literacy friendly context so that the viewer can figure it all out.
