For example, students may learn techniques for determining important information, making inferences, asking questions, and summarizing. They could apply these strategies to multiple content areas such as English, science, history, and/or math. Discipline Literacy, however, supports students in moving beyond the general reading strategies as they develop specialized practices for making sense of discipline-based texts. Disciplinary Literary is much more in-depth in nature. It includes understanding how information is presented in each discipline, the organization of important information, specialized vocabulary, and the interpretation and evaluation of evidence.
The frontal lobe of your neocortex is handling with meaning of the text and working to relate what you are reading with your prior knowledge. Even if you reading this text silently your temporal lobe is also active now. It is the area of the brain which deals with reading sounds. It is active as if you are listening to somebody speaking. However, he says that it is impossible to describe what exactly happening in the cellular level in the brain, Wren suggests that the reading process is divided into three main levels
Several different types of pottery styles came into circulation in the Britain region. At the start of the neolithic age, the first forms of pottery took on the role of the rounded pot in a rather simplistic, largely undecorated fashion. This type of fashion is referred to as a carinated bowl (Neolithic and Early Bronze Age, n.d.). The carinated bowl is the earliest recognized pottery style in Britain. It was first discovered in Hanging Grimston in Yorkshire and Lyles Hill in County Antrim of Britain.
Desert palaces were occasionally built alongside agricultural land, other Desert Palaces were built on trade routes. One of the Desert Palaces was built in Jordan called Qusayr Amra which was built by Caliph al- Walid I, the palace stands 80km east of Amman in Jordan. The only surviving remains of the palace are a tower, water wheel, well and some of the palace. Some buildings surviving of the palace is a throne room and audience chamber. The ceiling of the bath chamber is divided into rectangular sections, showing craftsmen working.
The first object that I found interesting during my visit at the Brooklyn museum was the Finger ring which was made by the Sumerians around 2600 to 2500 B.C.E. They were two rings that were gold in color with many ridges. Sumer, as I have learned in my class was the oldest civilization known to mankind which also developed the first writing system, Cuneiform which was wedge writing and developed around 3500 B.C.E. They also discovered the calendar as well as agriculture. The Sumerians also had a religion and worshiped many gods such as AN, KI, UTU and NINHURSUG.
So we know Language processing involves the reconstruction of meaning through prior knowledge. Top-down skills include surveying, skimming, scanning, reading for full comprehension, reading between the lines (inference), and reacting personally to reading texts. Even though we do not know the meaning of the word in a sentence, we can recognize and relate to something which makes sense with help of adverbs or adjectives in the sentence. By using their knowledge of context and co-text, they should either be able to guess the meaning of the unknown word, or understand the general idea without getting distracted by it. Example of common top-down listening activities include placing a series of pictures or sequence of events in order, listening to conversations and identifying where they take place, reading information about a topic then listening to find whether or not the same opinions are
Finally, the geometrical ideas possessed by the Egyptians are discussed, as well as how they used those ideas. Introduction One of the first, large steps in the evolution of mathematics took place in Egypt and Babylon, around 2000 BCE. (Egyptian Mathematics, n.d.) During this period, mathematics started evolving from only basic counting, to mathematics that is more
The Aural-Oral Approach in English Language Teaching In English language teaching there are several approaches that can be applied in a classroom. Each one has purpose and gives concern to certain skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing) development. One of these approaches is Aural-Oral Approach. The Aural-Oral Approach is based on developing two language skills: listening and after that speaking which is the earlier stage of learning a language (Geri, 1990). Aural means related to sense of hearing and oral related to verbal communication.
To make metals craftable they used an Egyptian heating process called smelting to removing the impurities of the ores and make it into something good to work with. Egypt was very much desert so Egypt did not have any great forest nor many tall trees. Most of Egypt wood were imported from Lebanon or Central Africa. Because of Egypt’s shortage in wood it
Comma splices were one of the major grammar problems that I had struggled with in the past. A comma splice brings two independent clauses together, creating a run on sentence. An example of how I misused a comma is; “Coming from a small school the teachers had the materials but did not see it important enough to teach they were more worried about other things.” Once I found my mistakes, I went back and added a comma after school, a period after teach and started a new sentence with the word “They”. Having strong sentences in my story was another problem that I struggled with. When writing an essay,
