Journalist enquiries For the third year running, Ordnance Survey is giving around 750 000 pupils in over 6 000 British schools their own scale Ordnance Survey Explorer map of their local area in a massive education initiative. Over 1.5 million children have already benefited from the scheme. The move reflects a growing recognition of the importance of maps, not only in geography studies but across the curriculum in citizenship, literacy and numeracy, and in key life skills such as decision making and problem solving. However, with frequently scarce funds, schools are often unable to provide current teaching materials for pupils. The national mapping agency's Free maps for 11-year-olds initiative comes as a boost at a time when schools' resources are being stretched more than ever before.

K-12 Teaching w/Technology Introduction Over the last 3 years or so, I've been gathering children's and young adult texts that include some level of technology interaction, typically involving computers and other digital technologies. My goals are two-fold: to examine how these texts present and situate technology as well as to explore ways to use these texts with pre-K to 12th grade readers. This presentation has been an opportunity to begin sharing the information that I have been gathering on my bookshelves. My ultimate goal is to develop an ongoing source of information for K12 teachers who may use these texts in their classrooms as well as for college teachers who are exploring how students' literacy skills are shaped by children's literature before they reach the college classroom.

Extractions: F ew people-either children or adults-would describe writing as a very easy process that they complete without much effort. Writing is a highly complex and demanding process. While negotiating the rules and mechanics of writing, the writer must maintain a focus on factors such as organization, form and features, purposes and goals, audience needs and perspectives, and evaluation of the communication between author and reader. Self-regulation of the writing process is critical; the writer must be goal-oriented, resourceful, and reflective. Even highly skilled professional writers speak to the demanding and complex mix of composition and self-regulatory abilities involved in writing. For example, Susan Sontag has said that when writing On Photography, she often drafted each page 30 to 40 times (Burnham, 1994). Joseph Heller, author of Catch-22, carried index cards in his wallet so that he could write down ideas whenever they came to him (Plimpton, 1989). Research on expert writers has further clarified the importance of self-regulation in writing. For skilled authors, writing is a flexible, goal-directed activity, scaffolded by a rich source of cognitive processes and strategies for planning, text production, and revision. Skilled authors also engage in purposeful and active self-direction of these processes and strategies. As Flower and Hayes (1980) note, "a great part of skill in writing is the ability to monitor and direct one's own composing processes" (p. 39). Research on and descriptions of expert writers-both children and adults-has been an important factor in understanding and improving children's writing abilities (Harris & Graham, 1992).
