When kids can not learn vocabulary, social skills, and new ways of thinking it might be harder for them to learn it as they get older because they did not know about it when they were younger. “Despite our not-so-casual saunter toward innovative, tech-based learning models, research shows that good, old-fashioned reading is still the best way to improve intelligence. “(10 reasons for banning books, and 5 much better reasons not to)”. For instance, this quote is important to society because it is proving that sometimes the old-fashioned way is the better way because kids are learning on their own and being able to put themselves to the test, reading harder books and also maturing as they read a more mature novel. Intelligence is not just passed on through genetics is has to be learned and one of the best ways to learn intelligence is to read.
One of the most important skills for young children to develop are literacy skills, every class a child will take in their future will require literacy skills for understanding content, completing assignments, and comprehending vocabulary (Kaiser). “Learning to read is one of the most challenging skills for young children who are beginning their school careers” (Kaiser). Identifying children who may be struggling with pre-literacy skills will benefit from early detection because the sooner the support is provided the higher chance of the proper development occurring. “The emergence of reading and related language skills as the cornerstone of preschool curricula is not surprising given the strong emphasis on reading in early elementary school” (Kaiser). Literacy is more than just reading, it is comprehension, retelling, retaining, and applying the information.

Schooling for the students Schooling systems have been the same since anyone could remember. What might need to change for students to get the equal amount of education as the “gifted” students? Will students still benefit from the lack of renewal in the education system? According to the authors from chapter 4 "How We Learn" Alfie Kohn, John Taylor Gatto, Bell Hooks, and Kristina Rizga, explaining in their essays published in "Acting Out Culture" by James S. Miller.
Kidwatching is an interesting and helpful strategy for me to understand my focus students’ literacy behavior. This observation strategy is an ideal way for me to get to know my students’ literacy tendencies and interests. There are many students who do not feel comfortable with their reading and writing skills, which causes the students to lack interest in all literature. After watching and interviewing my focus students, I learned that not all students like to read and write. Additionally, I learned that I must always be flexible in the classroom because things may not go as planned and I may have to quickly adjust.
Literacy can open new worlds for you, and opportunities you never knew existed. All three authors have had different experiences that lead them to a certain position. Mark Mathabane as a child doesn’t like school but he changes after time from his surroundings and experience, and finding
Before children learn to read and write, they must first acquire the ability to speak, listen, watch and understand. “Reading with children from an early age helps them develop a solid foundation for literacy.” Jeanne Chall, leading teacher, writer and researcher viewed the importance of the ‘direct, systematic instruction in reading’ Jeanne Chall’s book, Stages of Literacy Development, investigates the stages of children’s reading skills development and provides methods, for example phonics, in order to effectively encourage the process. The students must master one stage before they can move on to the next. The stages, in brief are: Stage 0 (pre-reading), between the ages of 6 months, or earlier, to 6 years; Stage 1 (initial reading or decoding), between the ages of 6-7 years; Stage 2 (confirmation and fluency), between the ages of 7 and 8; Stage 3 (reading for learning the new), between the ages of 9 and 13; Stage 4 (synthesis of information and applying multiple perspectives and viewpoints), ages between 14 and 18 years; finally, Stage 5 (a worldview, critical literacy in work and society), from 18 years old and onwards .
Language acquisition is a fundamental stage of childhood, as is generally the focus for 6- to 12-year-old school children (Bee et al., 2018). As a child, I was encouraged by my parents to read as an independent hobby. Research suggests the importance of motivating children to prepare for independent reading in school, as it contributes to one’s reading performance in adulthood (Bee et al., 2018). My genuine passion and interest in reading influenced my literary ability from an early age, and I was reading novels by kindergarten and was often placed in gifted reading programs. Had I not been so interested in reading as a child, my literary aptitude may not be at the level where it is
By working in partnership with parents, practitioners are able to get some information based on the child to help with the planning of activities for the child. In addition to working with parents, the setting would have the support of parents therefore; the child’s emergent literacy is more likely to develop at home. This is because if parents are supportive, they may be reading to the child at home or encouraged to do so by the setting not only in the early years but also from year 1 (key stage 1). Also, working with parents allows the sharing of information. Whilst in the setting, the practitioners will need to plan activities based on the child’s interests but also their age and stage of development based on the EYFS.
Although growing up with English as a second language, literacy is needed in order to move on and succeed. Kids in America whose first language is not English do not all start reading as quickly compared to those whose is. Reading comes as a struggle for some, not because they cannot
Tyne’s article starts out broad and then narrows in on each learning style. Also, she gives examples of the strengths and weaknesses of people with each of the three learning styles and encourages parents to identify their own child’s learning style (Tyne). LSSU’s article is half as long as Tyne’s and is formatted into bullet points rather than paragraphs. The respective length of each article can be explained by the fact that Tyne’s article has more persuasive elements than LSSU’s article. Again, Tyne seems to have ulterior agenda to her article that LSSU’s article lacks.
Like Mark Mathabane his parents sacrificed a lot for their sons education. He mentions “If, because of my schooling, I had grown culturally separated from my parents, my education finally had given me ways of speaking and caring about that fact.” (1) This shows that his childhood had a huge impact on the way he looked at education and literacy. Due to his situation he was even more intrigued in reading. The only thing that made him uncomfortable about reading by himself was the feeling of ¨loneliness”.
The film Lost in Translation follows two Americans visiting Tokyo during important transitional periods in their lives. Charlotte is a recent college graduate trying to figure out her career while also moving on from the honeymoon phase of her new marriage. Bob Harris is essentially going through a mid-life crisis as he sorts through life post-movie stardom and struggles to maintain a relationship with his overbearing wife. The two find each other in the hotel bar as a result of their inability to sleep and form a connection based on their mutual isolation in both their relationships and the city of Tokyo. The film touches on the importance of communication as well as what it is like to be a foreigner alone in a vastly different culture. The
