I will use a formative grading checklist during their news reports. The topics are professional reporting (proper introduction, addressing the audience, respecting others, using microphone appropriately, eye contact, proficient oral presentation), use of comprehension strategies (name/reference strategy, evidence and connections from text), and reflects on reading (evidence of reading chapters assigned, makes connections, includes specific details, correct).
Students must ask themselves, “What did my instructor say about this chapter or subject when it was assigned?” and “What do I already know about this subject?” Reading in order to find the answer gives students a purpose for reading. Read. As students begin to read, they must look for answers to the questions they asked in the prior step.

Theory Into Practice-Trends and Issues in Reading Instruction Upon review and reflection of this reading course concerning trends and issues, I am now more than ever determined to stick with my current beliefs regarding reading and young children. As an early childhood educator I believe that learning to read is developmental. A few students come to me reading while others barely know the letters of the alphabet. I also believe that the knowledge of knowing what is truly appropriate for a five year old can only assist a teacher in knowing if there is a developmental delay or a possible learning disability. A successful teacher of beginning readers develop comprehension skills and helps to expose them to wide range of texts to build background knowledge.

When children is being read to, it is proven to be more beneficial because it affects their reading skill level at an early stage, which in turn affects the stages of development later on and can even affect children as adults. The idea of reading can be easily neglected among many children if they were not met with the skills as
Book reading is a fundamental and simple activity that parents and children can enjoy together to enhance the literacy experience. Book reading is when children start to realise differences between oral and written language. It allows the child to start understanding word structures, develop and understand concepts of print and to also help them build a positive attitude towards reading and learning. But, success doesn’t just come from the reading itself. Positive interactions from parents such as questioning, elaborating on word meanings and identifying specific letters, are of great benefit to children.
It believes that children should focus on the meaning of what they read rather than sounding out the individual words repeatedly. ‘A book often seems to be not so much a text in which every word needs to be read, but rather a map in which a route is permissible in the journey towards making meaning.’ (Harrison & Coles, 2001) This supports the idea of learning to read through reading to learn ‘Children will become literate if they are placed in an environment that is rich in print and are encouraged to explore it.’ (Aronoff &Rees-Miller, 2001).Teachers supporting this theory would focus on the meaning and purpose of print, I observed this during my placement through activities like reading the children stories on a daily basis and helping children to use the
