The Scarlett Letter is a great example of his ideas. The Scarlett Letter is also an example of Foster’s idea that literature that is inspired by other literature does not have to be exactly the same as the literature that it is inspired by.

A couple of the students were able to also read the book along with me but some would just have more a confused look; mostly just looking at pictures. I fixed this by helping them sound out words and phrases to read the book with me.
Our Something from Nothing Unit was designed to help students acquire positive attitudes towards reading and books. Our goal was to make the unit as enjoyable for students as possible, while ensuring they are working towards mastery of the expectations from the Language Arts and Social Studies curriculum.

My Literary Journey When you are reading, the author includes lessons for the reader to discover and understand along the way. Some authors share their personal experiences with us. They can be either good or bad. If they are good they encourage us to pursue these experiences through hidden messages in the book. If they are bad they encourage us to not pursue these experiences through certain events that are expressed through the plot of the story.
They only want the money, and they don’t want to have more knowledge in their heads. They will not care about the knowledge that they hold, they will simply throw it away and ‘learn’ new subjects. Knowledged that they obtained, would be dross. Even though some students’ grades flounder, that doesn’t mean you have to bribe students for grades. The students need to be zealous about learning.
Describe how you would adapt the strategy or activity you identified to meet the needs of the student. To meet Julie 's learning needs, I will adapt the activities to engage her class participation in different ways, and simplify the lesson to fit her learning demands. I will give Julie a copy of reading material, so she can trace the text and follow my reading tempo when I am reading the text to the rest of the class. Because she is able to read text independently at grade level, she can also read the text by herself if she needs to review or revisit the content. Allowing Julie to read along helps improve her comprehension and brings an emphasis on her strength in learning.

I am currently working with a first grade ESL student, and she is learning the alphabet and sounds. Mrs. Marasigan instructed me to practice the alphabet with the student and provided the flash cards. During the lesson, I pointed to the cards and asked the student “what letter is this” or “what sound does this letter make”? The student knew 24 letters and confused U and Y for V. The student will need more practice on the sounds because she produced the J sound for G, C sound for S and Q sound for W. The short term goal for the first-grade student recognizes the entire alphabet with the correspond sound.

Reading Indicator 5.2 Think Aloud is the researched – based reading strategy I chose to use to facilitate the reading comprehension skills while reading nonfiction literature. The strategy used for 5.2, think aloud, is teachers modeling the use of text features to increase students reading comprehension of nonfiction text. Students will observe the teacher asking specific questions about the text, illustrations, charts, and other text features to understand what the text is saying at a deeper level, and retain more information about the text. Furthermore, my objective is that, students will learn how to effectively use text features as they observe the teacher modeling the process, using the reading strategy think aloud, for students while reading a text.
