A good way to teach this to a child who is having problems with synthetic patterns, is to give them books, like Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. Orally repeating words that sound alike and practicing writing them as we say them. As we do this the child will be able to say that –at makes this sound in a words, which will help them learn new and bigger words. Also a good way to use this type of instruction is to use actual objects and have the child sort them by the way they sound, then writing those words, and then making sentences out of them. Alternative #2: Spelling Based Instruction, on pages 234 and 235, is an approach that focuses on each child individual level of knowledge.
Reading practices for this perspective teach students how to decode text and understand the words where students are able to fluently read text instantly. Instructional materials such as commercial reading programs and work books are used to aide in reading process. According to Ulbricht, “Modernists also believed in the use of acclaimed exemplary models to guide
Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read. AR gives the student and the teacher immediate feedback on the quiz, which the teacher then uses to help the student set goals and direct ongoing reading practice. To determine the student’s reading-level a short ten minute computer based reading assessment that adjusts the levels of difficulty to student responses is administered. The test establishes a Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD) reading range for the student. Students are then encouraged, or required by some teachers, to select books within their ZPD that also matches their age and interest level.
After reviewing the reading, we can make many assumptions about the authors’ argument. I think that this is quiet self-explanatory on the message the authors is arguing “that a teacher can help students, but the student “must do the learning.” you as a student can by taught many things but until you actually learn it or apply or are even able to explain it yourself then you have learned the concept applying to this concept there is quote in the book where it is said “Knowledge must grow in his mind if learning is to take place” (Adler and Van Doren; “The Activity and Art of Reading” page 8). I also think that the student has to put in the initiative to learn the concept themselves without the initiative of applying the concept you won’t ever learn the concept. Learning the concept is much like applying the concept of discovery that the Arthur was also referring to in the reading where it was mentioned in the quote “the learner acts on something communicated to him”. After the reading I see my role as a student as the learner or as the thinker which applies the concept that are being taught by the instructor.
c. Social issues such as poverty, crime, abuse and attitudes, just mention a few. WHAT IS PHONICS WHAT IS PHONICS Phonics is simply the relationship between letters and sounds in a language. For example when a child learns that the letter A make the ‘a; they are learning phonics. Words are made up from small units of sound called phonemes. Phonics teaches children to be able to listen carefully and identify the phonemes that makes up each word.
The teachers done all kinds of stredegy to engage me on English. As time go by I was not grasping the assignment as quickly as I should have been. Learning how to point out sentence essential and agreements were just another part of English that was getting me prepared for writting skills. After learning several parts of English I started working on establishing a express book to write my thoughts that come to surface in it. Writing in my express book helped me correspond with English in a different way to understand how writing is a way of English taht should be familar.
I found the most in younger children’s picture books which are essential for shaping young minds. I learned a lot myself from these books. Books, like Sitti’s Secret contain a lot of cultural information that I did not know about prior to reading it. Becoming Naomi Leon also contained cultural aspects that I did not consider before reading. I found the least interest in the wordless books.
Material evaluation should become a need for ELT practitioners, as not many of us have the chance to choose our own material to teach but on the contrary, most of the time, we are given a set of materials to use in our classrooms. According to Tomlinson (2003) “materials evaluation is a procedure that involves measuring the value (or potential value) of a set of learning materials”. The real challenge though, is trying to find a way to make those materials fit our students’ needs and context. For this assignment, I was required to analyze and evaluate the efficiency of some materials from my course book and select some appropriate material to include as a supplement. I will explain the rationale behind the selection of this supplementary material and then will teach a lesson using it.
Understanding Text Type by Using Reading Comprehension Skills There are many different styles of reading for different situations. The techniques that people choose depend on the purpose of reading. For example, people might be reading for enjoyment, information or to complete a task. Therefore, they need to adjust their reading speed and technique for those purposes. Low reading achievement is a genuine and consequential problem for many middle and high school students.
The teacher was able to implement this by reinforcing grammars metalanguage that she required the students to learn. Problematic knowledge, however was not evidently demonstrated in the lesson. The teacher could develop this element by allowing the students to use a favourite book or other reading material. Then get the students change the text into direct speech, this will get the students to think about the process. The Quality Learning Environment focuses on the classroom, and how students and teachers are able to work productivity with an environment clearly focused on learning.
