And etc… During reading you should find the answers of these questions. All of these questions make your reading more effective. The more the questions are clear and many, the more the reading is powerful and effective. Fluency and knowledge of the language is also a skill, that you acquire during your life, it is needed because a person with weak language and that has difficulties in fluency will have problems in understanding and effective reading. Vocabulary is also important, a person who has a good pile of vocabulary will find easier to read and understand.
7 Most reading instruction in elementary and secondary school is very focused on the understanding of the text and even in the new words or vocabulary build up. From that sense, interventions are needed by the students (Burns, Hodgson, Parker, & Fremont, 2011). The success of students in any field of acquiring skills specifically in reading can be determined through students’ motivation which could possibly be obtained by the teachers’ attitude and capability in constructing a program beneficial for each student but when teachers fail to maintain good attitude towards students then low-motivated learners are expected to fail in comprehending or understanding any form of a given printed materials Nilsen (2009). Morgan & Fuchs, 2007 emphasized that teachers must look for techniques or develop strategies to help students who are at
Engaging students in reading has always been and might always be a hard task if educators and parents do not seek to find ways to engage the minds of the children. If that is not done then children grow up with a pre-conceive notion about reading which would make it harder for them to read a book on their own, like reading or even see the value of it. Unfortunately, I can say that I was a student who never liked reading, who never saw the value of it and rather watch a movie based on book than read it but I can proudly say that I no longer share those views of my younger self and I do see the value and benefits of reading and appreciate it much more. As a prospective teacher, I try to identify strategies and activities that would foster students
The findings of this study suggest a number of pedagogical implications, especially in ESL settings. O’Malley and Chamot (1990) stated that since metacognitive strategies are important for regulating other strategies, teaching students how to use these strategies should become a main purpose in the reading classroom. The teachers should take into account the students’ reading ability and challenges when reading in online environment so the teachers can be able to integrate effective reading strategy instruction for the students to implement when they read academic texts on the Internet. Here are a number of suggestions for teachers who plan to integrate effective reading strategy instruction for online reading. It is highly recommended
First of all pre reading strategies help to stimulate their prior knowledge about a topic and involve the students in the themes before they even open the book. The while-reading strategies help the students to monitor their comprehension in the moment of reading. Besides, activities like asking questions and explaing key ideas help them to engage with the text. Finally, the post reading activities help them to organize the informations, clarify doubts, and respond to what was read. In conclusion, I think that the use of reading strategies in my class is helping my students to become independent readers that know that reading is reading is an active process that involves critical thought before, during, and after engaging the
Teachers should incorporate a combination of direct instruction and the constructivist approach when teaching reading. This essay will discuss six elements of teaching students to read including oral language, phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension and fluency, and ways in which teachers can deliver instruction using a balanced approach. A balanced approach to teaching reading involves explicit phonics instruction as well as world view. Traditionally students were introduced to reading with an emphasis on phonics. McBride-Chang (2004) recognised that this bottom-up approach resulted in students who are more likely to lose interest in reading due to the limited vocabulary and repetitiveness of texts they read (p.120).
In so doing, he/she would provided support or guided instruction during the reading process so that students can comprehend. Hence, the goal, according to (Froese, 1990), of every language teacher is to improve comprehension skills. That is, through the use of various strategies. Among some of the strategies that can improve reading comprehension, Walker (2004) identified questions-answers and relationships, K-W-L, directed reading thinking activity, language experience, reciprocal teaching and guided
This professional development is promoting the needs of all learners. As mentioned data shows that our students are performing below grade level when it comes to reading comprehension. Our students are showing a lack of reading comprehension techniques and routines; this professional development will help teachers revisit key elements such as literary and pedagogical techniques that will promote reading comprehension as well as additional support for differentiation. This will help teachers implement such approaches in their lesson delivery to assure that students are utilizing them. Principal support in implementing
Reading skills include skills acquired through reading, such as comprehension, fluency and independence. Overall, these skills give students the ability to turn words on a page into a clear meaning. Maynor ( 2016 ) Swanson (2001) indicated that research shows that children learn about reading before they enter school. In fact, they learn in the best manner-through observation. Young children, for example, see people around them reading newspapers, books, maps, and signs.
As I said, when we use them, we have a lot of opportunities. Not only it is comfortable, but also solution for our weak sides. It is not surprising condition or event. By using reading instruction with various strategies, all of us will improve the reading abilities of, and we will begin to hear good readers say things like "We remember things which we read!" The key of problems is to be aware of reading and other strategies which can help us recognize our weak sides and choose appropriate methods for ourselves.
