Montag stole a book; the Book of Ecclesiastes. He explains this to Faber because he wants Faber to understand how passionate he has become for wanting to learn and use books. Montag’s love for reading gradually grows more and more because he is beginning to actually read them. That is another reason why the book of Ecclesiastes is so important because it is the first one he actually begins to read. Montag feels a power source from the books he is reading that energizes his feeling of gaining more knowledge from them.
Reading involves garnering knowledge, information and meaning from any literary text. Readers are encouraged to be active in constructing meaning while reading text. Thus, after reading has taken place, readers should have a clear understanding of what has been written and they will then be able to transfer information they need. However, many students still have challenges with comprehension; especially when they have to comprehend words, sentences or an entire text. If people do not understand what they read, it becomes a frustrating, pointless exercise in word calling.
Repetition and seeing vocabulary words several times is also important. (www.national reading panel.org) A student, who can read comprehensively, can also be successful in all his or her lessons. So it is important to student to learn how to read and to know the reading strategies. Instructors consequently have a very imperative part to play in helping their learners get most out of reading and become good readers. While teaching reading comprehensively, the teacher must keep in mind that their goal is to let the students understand what the authors meant.
MORANTA, CIELO GRACE Y. ED ENG 106-Technology in Language Teaching MAED-ENGLISH 1 Dr. Mercelita J. Labial Reflection Paper on Deep Reading It is always the aim of teachers to make every child a reader . It is because the ability to read is greatly necessary to educate a man. With this main objective, teachers adopt different reading strategies and approaches to facilitate the development of various reading skills. Reading is a basic skill in life. It is not only a skill but as well as perhaps the most pleasurable , desirable indulgence to get someone informed and edge over in life’s other rudiments in learning.
He describes the books at their house by saying, “They were stacked in crazy piles in the bathroom, bedroom, and living room” (215). Which details how he learned to read despite having limited resources but only books that helped him to mature and be concerned to help others with his knowledge to be as great as him. Sherman Alexie knew he was different and that is why he never gave up even though he was viewed as an oddity. Knowing this stereotype motivated Alexie to become an exception to this rule. When he was adult he tries to make other students believe that they can make a difference by reading and opening their minds to the world.
Consistently, people tell students that reading is critical and is “good” for them; however, do they ever explain why reading is critical? What does reading do except to improve our reading skills? As a small child, we learn the alphabet, then we learn to read, and from that point on, we just continue to improve reading. A common idea is that reading can help develop our knowledge and critical skills throughout our education process; in addition, studies show that reading fiction can improve empathy, awareness, and even our social skills. Many argue, however, that many who read already contain empathy skills and never gain any empathy skills through reading.
So it only makes sense that it is one of the most stressed points in the syllabus. The instructor outlines how he will help us achieve a few ways. They are all stated in the “English 1110 Outcomes Statement”. Here it says that we will be able to identify our audience, focus on our purpose, and learn various general writing skills such as organizing an essay, formatting an essay, using proper grammar, etc. This shows that the instructor values the basic writing mechanics because it is necessary for us to be able to succeed as professional writers.
In the James Harvey Robinson story “On Various Kinds of Thinking” and the Ralph Waldo Emerson story “Self Reliance” both of the authors talk about the different ways people process information. Along with this, the two authors address how people pursue knowledge in different ways. For Robinson, he proves that people do not only apply their minds to work ideas out, but also the persuasion of others. On the other hand, Emerson states that we have learned to follow since it is all we have ever known and do not wish to risk stepping out of our comfort zones. Both of these authors write about similar ways of learning, but their ways also differentiate from each other.
Reading is one of the most important skills a person can learn, and a great joy in life. My laid-back methods of teaching a child to read: 1) Be a reader yourself Children naturally want to copy adult behavior. If your kids see you often with your nose in a book, they will probably begin to wonder what is so interesting about this activity. 2) Read to your kids This is probably a huge no-brainer. Read to your kids early and often.
Instruction should be based upon the laws of organization: proximity, closure, similarity, and simplicity. (Kearsley, 2003, p.25) Gestalt theory is interrelated with directed reading thinking activity as students construct knowledge based on prior knowledge. It depends on learner’s past and current experiences and perceptions to acquire new information. This particular study on using DRTA is based on the above learning theories. Learning through DRTA strategy is based on the schema and cognitive theory because our previous knowledge is important to comprehend the text.
