That is why there are some cases where pupils are not able to retain meaning as they were given with complex passages. Again in this article, Lenz has stated that reading comprehension is important for pupils to learn as it helps the reader in comprehending text and convey meaning through there. However, it depends to how the person read and gain meaning from the passage. It can also be through various strategies in understanding
Explaining and clarifying is a very important strategy, especially for children who struggle to understand. Teaching assistant can teach the students to clarify by focusing their attention on reasons why the text is difficult; to understand and to notice when they don’t understand; to clarify parts of the text which have confused them; to monitor their comprehension as they read, and to correct it when needed. Students should notice when they don’t understand the text; they can’t read a word, or don’t understand a word; they can’t figure out how the text is set up. Teaching assistant can teach students to use fix-up strategies to fix the problem when they don’t understand the text; to think about what they know; to stop and think about what they have already read; to reread. Teaching assistant can explain what to do if children can’t read a word, or don’t understand a word: They should teach them to break words down, look for little words inside big words, look for base or root words, prefixes, or suffixes etc; to keep reading or rereading to see if they can get a sense of the definition from the text.
Introduction According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary (2016), one of the definitions of Language is that it is “The system of words or signs that people use to express thoughts and feelings to each other”. Therefore, language is used to express the thoughts and feelings, and vocabulary is necessary to express it. But learning the definitions of words is fundamental. Many teachers believe that an effective instructional technique is to define words before reading a text because it supports vocabulary growth and helps them comprehend what they read; however, research indicates otherwise. Teaching English vocabulary may be challenging, and it takes a challenging teacher to achieve it.
On the contrary, when a text has difficult language, when students do not participate, and when it is not authentic, it can make it more difficult for students to learn. In my opinion, the medium that is most effective is when the text is easily understandable, such as in No Fear Shakespeare. Being able to view a modern translation of the text can help students grasp a better understanding of the story. However, when the text has difficult language, it can be troublesome for students to learn anything while reading. Although it could build your vocabulary, it is still difficult for students to read while learning at the same time.
We need to explain what is expected of them in a way that is clear for them to understand, this will teach them the way to communicate themselves, to do this the need to focus on language, expression and verbal content relevant to the age Question: Question 7 Answer: It is important to be sensitive to the needs of other adults, especially if they have difficulties with communicating. Most of the time communications will change without anyone realising. Changing the way to react will depend on the personsâ€TM responses. Reflecting on the situation will be a way to learn for future communications. Observing ways people respond to certain methods of communication can make you aware if things need to be done differently for the future ie.
Sean Budomo Mrs. Shippen Language Arts The current education system in the United States has many problems and is extremely flawed. The education system 's faults include the lack of quality teachers in many schools that do not care and do not get paid back the amount of effort they put in, government support in the wrong areas, uses of standardized testing, and the lack of parent involvement which creates negative student behaviors and attitudes in a child 's school life are some problems of US education. Common core is a problem, it has created a national defective standard curriculum and only slightly raised the rank of the United States in education compared to other countries, but still could not fix other problems from the
This is not fair to the people who are exceptionally knowledgeable in a subject and just become stressed easily. This further proves that standardized tests are not an accurate measure of educational quality. In most cases, teachers are better suited to measure how much a student knows about a certain subject (Jouriles). They could tell officials which students can read and write and know the basic subject skills that the tests are testing for. The teachers are also around the students more which can better help the accurately assess how much a student knows.
For instance, some students may read very well but not understand the meaning of the text or perhaps they can decode and understand exactly what they are reading but with some difficulties, for example when performing reading aloud. Writing on the other hand requires and involves more skills than any other area. Besides of being coherent and cohesive, a piece of text should present good grammar and punctuation. All these elements combined are fundamental to communicate a clear
They also motivate the students' performance in the language; so in this case, teaching is geared largely to tests. Hughes (1996) mentioned that if a test is regarded important, preparation for it should dominate all teaching and learning activities. Otherwise, the test content and testing techniques will be at variance with objectives of the course, which will result harmful washback. Davies (1990) also mentioned that tests have great influence on teaching, which is known as washback or backwash effect, and this strong influence is usually negative. For example, for university study in one of the English speaking countries, the students should have a good command of language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) in order to be able to understand the lectures in the classroom, take notes, attend classroom discussion, and read and comprehend the texts.
For example “Hey wassap with that?” sounds right but when it is interpreted to the real condition of communication, it may not make sense. The other speaker may reply depending on how you communicate. A good example of using a proper grammar is “What is going on there?” That can be replied with the use of a proper grammar. The better grammar gets the message across clearer and can be noticed that, by using improper grammar can impact social communication skills. Grammar is one of the keys to effective students’ education world and yet they need to learn basic grammar.
Many students have been found to become highly nervous and anxious taking these tests. As Ravitch (2013), “the exams looked like AP exams and were beyond the reach of many students”. These tests must be revised so that the majority of students can actually understand them. While some may be able to perform at this level not all will and believing that making something harder will improve ability is insane. Students must not be expected to do well on tests they don’t even understand.
