Realistic Readers While I believe every child is a reader, I do not believe every child will be enthralled with reading all the time. All students have the capability to read and enjoy reading, but just like any other hobby, interest will vary from student to student. The students in my classroom will be encouraged in their reading, be provided with choice, taught how books can take you into another world but, my students will not be forced to read. This paper will illustrate my philosophy of reading through the theories I relate to, the way I want to implement reading and writing curriculum, and the methods I will use motivate my students to read and help them become literate. Learning Theories I strongly believe that you cannot know an experience until you have felt it yourself.
One key to becoming a reader is being exposed in the language in various ways. Songs, poetry, books, these are all materials available for parents to teach their children the skill of reading. Reading is a skill which can only be learned gradually. There are instances where some kids learn it quicker than the others. This is because of the frequency of the reading activities done with them.
perception of reading: According to M.Perkins, if teachers had not enough experience , their effectiveness as a teacher of reading would be poor. At first, teacher should prepare to teach reading. Reading is sometimes more than a blend of several parts. M.Perkins try to offer a relationship the ways of knowing and effective teaching of reading. When a teacher want to teach a child to read , she/he needs to herself/himself .She need to experience reading, just knowing about procedures are not enough.

To Kill a Mockingbird may not work as a novel to get students excited about reading in every class, in every school. However, the tools to educate are not exclusive to specific novel, or for that matter, English literature. Helping students connect, understand, and apply the themes, concepts and ideas they are confronted with in the classroom is a priority that should be number one among all teachers, of every subject.
Why It Is Important The reason that this is important is a student must not only be able to read the words but must understand what he or she is reading or things are lost to the reader and to others.

Learning the language a little at a time throughout my life had made English easy for me to learn, but seeing someone else try to learn it made me understand how learning a new language, especially English, was hard. I had respect for my mother, and anyone trying to learn English, because the way the language is made makes it difficult to understand if it does not come as a first language. When teaching my mother how to read, I had to be patient, understanding, and empathetic. I could not get mad at her for not knowing something right away because it was something new for her. This experience changed the way I read as well.
Some may argue that liking writing is not something that can be taught, but I think students can learn to enjoy writing if they are given the right assignments. I plan on teaching and using all three rhetorics in my classroom because I think they’re all necessary for success as a well-rounded writer. Using the current traditional rhetoric model can be tedious and restricting, but it’s a necessary skill to have for the future, particularly when it comes to writing essays. Once students have mastered form, they will discover that they actually do have a lot of freedom in expressing their views within it. The epistemic model can be difficult because one always has to keep audience in mind, but it is also very useful, and shows students that their writing can make a difference.
During these stages students need to be encouraged to read for pleasure, reading is not something a student has to do and the student should also read for enjoyment (Tompkins et al., 2015). If students read for pleasure they will gain practice reading in their own time and improve their reading skills. The more a student reads the more skills and strategies they are able to develop to decipher different
While at the same time understand someone out of the classroom setting, brushes up on their skills in writing with these books before they have to complete some type of report that needs to be concrete and readable. Students and other writers should understand that while these books can be effective tools they simply are that a tool and not a style that should be studied, and copied word for word. In these two different forms of writing and style that are addressed by both authors I feel they are targeting different audiences that have two dissimilar styles. These books are great tools for perfecting our style as writers, but they should not be relied on too heavily by the writer. Everyone has a different angle of style they go for in their writing; these books simply either enhance that style, or with books like Strunk and White’s curtail that style into one of the authors.
If words are beyond a student’s skills, students tend to guess the words and they may think reading is too difficult for them to learn, resulting in a lack of confidence in themselves, believing reading is beyond them. Reading and speaking is a process, which takes time and patience. Students should be encouraged to go at a pace, which is not too fast and within their comfort zone. Early learners should be introduced to new ideas gradually and their skills and knowledge built up step by step. The reading skills of a student determine other skills in English.
