The more they practice and the more teachers and parents instill this in their minds, the better they will become. Perfect practice, makes perfect. Most people would probably have trouble with trying to remember how they learned to read. I would have to say that I am a person who loves to read and I think that is it really an amazing thing. Also, I am someone who is involved in education and research and I think that it is amazing how learning to read is said to be a talent that it potentially impossible.
After Alexie became a writer, he often visited schools and teach creative writing to Indian kids and let them read books. Indian children were expected to be stupid but after they read books they are refreshed. He wrote about those kids in the article [run on sentence. End the last sentence with a period and then integrate the quote] “they have read my books. They have read many books.
Francine Prose states, "Traditionally, the love of reading has been born and nurtured in high school English class." I disagree with this statement only because of my own personal experience. My love of reading was stimulated by my own passionate mother who instilled in me from a very early age that reading books frequently is important for any educated individual. I was very startled to find that other children weren't as lucky as me, relying primarily on their school education to teach them how to read and to love reading. By the time that we were in middle school, the majority of my friends felt that reading was a chore and turned their noses up at any books I'd suggested to them.
He borrowed a dictionary and copied every word , page after every page , reading and understanding as much as he could while copying , at the same time working on improving his handwriting . He was able to do this because he was in prison and had all the time in the world . Later , he progressed from the dictionary and started reading novels by well-read writers of history and philosophy (Malcolm X .What Malcolm X accomplished could be done just as easily in public schools . The only problem will be how to motivate and inspire the students to do what Malcolm X did and achieve what he was able to accomplish . To this end , teachers should not only be trained how to teach but also how to motivate .
I believe that many students need motivations and reasons to do frequent studying, reading, and exercising; therefore frequent in-class exams will give them good reasons and motivations to start reviewing a chapter. Frequent tests will be more efficient in classes that require a lot of readings and memorizing, such as history, politic, geography, etc, because if a student procrastinate his reading until a night before the test, he will be overwhelmed. Another advantage from frequent exams is that students can use their returned exams that have been given feedbacks and the right answers for their study guides to prepare for their midterm or
By providing Aria and her classmates with such useful writing tips, it allowed Aria to use it in her literacy narrative, “The Melting Pot of Writing”; she provided each opinion and or experience with supporting claims or explanations. Good writers always supply the reader with supporting details and reasoning for ones thoughts or actions. As you read the “The Melting Pot of Writing,” you’re able to imagine the experiences, hear the repeating of the letter sounds, and actually visualize the classroom situations as she expressed them in her
Education is one of the most important factors. There are a lot of teens who need assistance with their education. Providing educational services at public libraries opens doors for teens that need help, and may not feel comfortable asking their teachers, peers, or parents. It also provides for teenagers that are homeschooled. Not only is it important that public libraries have their doors open for educational purposes, but also for personal interests.
Therefore, it is imperative that in the learning process, individuals are well equipped with the appropriate learning preference in order to allow more efficiency and help eliminate exhaustion of needed time for learning. The V.A.R.K analysis tool is ideal in identifying learning styles and will equip the student with the necessary strategies to gain success in academics. After participating in the V.A.R.K, I come to agree with the results of my learning style as a ‘Read-Write Learner’. In the age of internet, text messaging, and e-college, I consider my strength in learn at best when I have a hardcopy textbook in hand. Throughout elementary, high school and even college, learning by investing hours reading a textbook, dictionary, handouts, magazines allows my mind to imagine and explore the topic of study as opposed to the convenience of a web-browser.
First of all, specialized curriculum is a significant benefit that talented students receive when they enroll in gifted education. Piirto (as cited in Heward, 1996) asserted that gifted children have ability to study fast, grasp complex concepts and master them easily, so they need exposure to special education which includes beneficial methods. Acceleration is considered the first and necessary approach, which modifies learning pace and broaden opportunities for prodigy children to go over compulsory curricula quickly (Heward, 1996). For example, early admission program is a mode of acceleration that permits gifted students to enroll schools, colleges or universities at earlier-than-usual ages. Basing on research of Brody & Benbow (1987) and Stanley (1985), Heward (1996) indicated: “Programs that allow gifted students to accelerate their academic program have been highly successful in terms of academic achievements, extracurricular activities and social and emotional adjustment” (p.482).
Teaching students to read and learning to read is an intricate task. Most children enter school with a considerable amount of competence in their spoken language but have little knowledge of how to read and write. There are many diverse approaches used to teach language and literacy skills and a lot of debate has arisen on how to best teach beginning reading. Some educators advocate for a phonics based approach, while others support a whole language approach. This paper will briefly look at these two different approaches, discuss some options on how best to deliver an effective reading program, and review a commercial reading program, in this case, Jolly Phonics, and its usefulness in promoting phonological awareness.
