An interview with a literacy coach enable a link between the findings and past research to be made. It was made by the way the interviewee explains how students lacked comprehension when reading and were just decoding words. Therefore, when someone is reading they have to comprehend the meaning, decode the words, while also focusing on grammar and punctuation. This requires huge amounts of effort and cognitive thinking as students are not just doing a singular task. In addition, students have to realise that when comprehending the meaning of words, as some may have multiple meanings.
With the reading skills for vocabulary lacking, these children are usually labeled with ‘learning disabilities’. All too often students read a passage and skip over the words that they do not understand. However, vocabulary skills in reading are essential to not only in the reading classroom, but in all the content area classrooms as well. Vocabulary development should give the students the ability to learn the meaning of new words and concepts that are presented to them in their text. Learning this skill will help students with comprehension and their content area curriculum.
What I Did If you think of the most important thing that a student learns in elementary school it would be reading. Reading is a lot more than just decoding the words on a page. Reading is understanding or comprehending what you read. In the classroom, it is the hardest thing to teach to students because of this I developed a unit on comprehension. This taught students how to remember what they read so that they were able to re-tell their favorite stories to other people.
This is useful, and helpful when teaching kids. It allows for repetition and practice of reading and writing. However, in some cases especially students who are below average in their reading skills some strategies need to be provided and mastered before comprehension can occur. Students need to have prior background knowledge about phonics, and word usage. The whole idea is to build both top-down model strategies, and bottom-up skills and word identification at the same time.
It’s very hard to teach reading for those students with LD. One factor to this is the varying needs of the students and the condition that controls the learning situation. In the articles read, the authors provide solutions to help the LD students with their reading skills and intellectual capacity. Watson, Fore & Bone (2009) discuss strategies they used in a reading intervention they conducted recently. In Carr (1991), the author illustrates reading comprehension strategies to benefit students with LD.

I personally don’t think I would use this approach because I believe it would take up a lot of learning time from letters that really need to be taught. While I observed I notice that some letter really didn’t need a whole week to work on since they probably have always seen it or use it. Unlike letters that are barely use, does are the letters that need more time to work on. It’s hard to come up with a lesson that will help all your student and address their specific needs.
The books highlight, bold, or italicize critical words and provide definitions of the word or within the text or margins. This definition of terms gives the reader the knowledge basis to understand the content of what they are reading. If the books authors did not define these terms, then understanding the information they are trying to convey would be difficult. As I have worked with students and observed lessons being taught I find some of the students struggling with in understanding the language of learning because they do not understand the vocabulary being used. They are struggle with learning the information because they are trying to understand the unfamiliar terms used in the text.
In this essay, I would like to discuss the case of dyslexia and explain how we can help these kind of students by using specific teaching models and skills. Characteristics of dyslexia Firstly, we should briefly introduce the factors of dyslexia. Dyslexia is a kind of disease that affect the passion’s ability in reading and writing. They would find it difficult in identifying the pattern of words and write them in a correct way . As a result, student who having dyslexia will be very difficult in catch up the course content as other student because they must spent more time in remembering the word of contents and understand the meaning of those words.
According to Partnership (2005) reading comprehension is about understanding a text which is read through the process of constructing meaning from a text. In general, the point of reading is made up of recognizing or identifying, interpreting, and responding the components of a written message. It means that, in this case students have to understand and interpret the meaning of words or symbols in a text to achieve their own goals or interests. In getting the all components of information and acquiring the meaning in a written message, many students find some difficulties because they have to go through a certain process in solving the puzzle in the message. Other difficulties also can be found by students from th... ... middle of paper ... ...nning technique?
Literature Review In today’s schools, so many children have problems with learning to read. Learning to read is an important life skill and comprehending text is the reason that we read.
