Most students of this modern age have no time to delve into a book and be lost in its pages for hours on end. Part of it could be that students are overwhelmed by homework or they are too lazy. Another part of it could be that they have no motivation to read a book because without pictures, books are meaningless to them. In order to inspire students to enjoy reading for the rest of their lives, teachers and schools should allow the students to pick a book, make various trips to the library, and expose students to different book genres. In elementary school, students would generally go to the library at least once a week to a month to pick out a book to read for independent reading.
These books are taken home the weekend before and students are encouraged to read at home. Reading aloud develops speaking skills and summarising the book allows students to develop skills in conveying their thoughts through verbal communication. It is important that as teachers we do not fall in the trap of believing that literacy is just reading and writing. Teachers should set activities that encourage students to go deeper into texts. This was implemented every morning, after reading the children would choose a comprehension task the teacher had hung on the wall and write about their
Reading to children can teach them skills they’ll need throughout their entire life. Reading aloud not only enhances their skills, it also affects how the their school life is. Being read to regularly is important to maintain the skills that the child learns, the earlier a child is being read to, the more skills they acquire. Parents will benefit from reading also, it creates a bond with their child that last a lifetime. Reading aloud will introduce children to books and reading so they can eventually do it on their own.
Worse still, students who have been up late trying to finish off their homework, then come tired into school the next day, and therefore are less ready to learn. Setting homework does little to develop good study skills. It is hard to check whether the homework students produce is really their own. Some students have always copied off others or got their parents to help them. But today there is so much material available on the internet that teachers can never be sure.
At that point in my life, I wanted to my fellow classmates to find the pleasure in reading and writing that I did, but no one would really listen. As long as I can remember I have desired to make a difference in someone’s life, and the opportunity finally prevailed in high school. I had the opportunity to tutor a young child in reading and when she had finally accomplished the feat of reading, I was overjoyed because she grew to love reading. But when I looked at my classmates, they were all groaning about the selections that our teachers had given us. I suppose that seeing a young child enjoy reading inspired me to want to teach high school literature.
As students circle around their teacher, ready to hear a story they may believe that they are getting out of work. What the students don’t realize is they are actually learning, just in an indirect way. This means going beyond the giant textbooks and moving into books students can connect with. Literature plays a dynamic role in the classroom from aiding learning in different subject areas, developing critical thinking skills and teaching moral lessons. Before I started taking my principles of elementary math class I never would have thought about the fact teachers use literature to aid learning in math.
When Richard first got into school he realized reading was one of the main activities in school, so he knew he would be doing a lot of reading throughout school. This was a problem for him, because he had a fear of reading and it didn’t help that as child Richard 's parents only read books to gain knowledge about something such as manuals and newspapers he never saw them "read for pleasure". (Rodriguez pg.227) As school went on he was placed in a remedial class with a nun as the teacher. She helped him to get over his fear of reading alone and this gave him the will to read more and more books. As time
In Carr (1991), the author illustrates reading comprehension strategies to benefit students with LD. Putting these strategies together, an effective reading intervention can be formulated that can help the learning disabled children. Teaching reading skill to students with LD may appear to be a difficult task. If these students' varying needs and the learning conditions of a crowded public school convene, then we can observe them left behind in the integrated classrooms. To tackle this issue, reading interventions should be prepared for students with LD as for them to have equal learning opportunities.
These problems can be solved with the help of parents, teachers and the guardians. Best remedy to solve these problems is book reading because more reading innovates the teens to face the problems. Reading enriches one's intellectual abilities. Depth in reading helps to develop the mind and personality of teens, it provides insights into human problems and influences attitudes and behavior. In other words, reading helps to mould a person's character.
For example students may read in an efferent stance when they study for exams or read non-fiction literature. Students may read aesthetically as well, when they are reading for the “pleasure and the rew... ... middle of paper ... ...est them. With the understanding of Rosenblatt’s Transactional Theory, I can mold myself into an educator that teaches for the students. I will accept and understand that each student will learn through different processes, at different levels, and by different texts. In my future classroom, I will strive towards creating and comforting environment in which students can enrich themselves in books that they have chosen.
