This allows students to feel comfortable to grow as independent readers and writers. Teachers who engage in professional study may rely on a literacy coach. “Using their expertise in reading and learning to read, literacy coaches provide professional development opportunities and resources” (Vacca et al., 2012). A literacy coach has many various roles, but their primary goal is support teacher learning. Literacy coaches also develop curriculum, present valuable professional development to teachers, model lessons and supply material and feedback.
Teaching Students how to read Learning to read is an on going process. Aesthetic and Efferent reading are the two types of reading a student can do. Aesthetic reading is when people read for their own enjoyment and to make their own visuals and interpretations in their head. Efferent reading is when students read for a specific purpose, for example finding the answer to a test in their textbook. With both types of reading, there are many steps a student has to be made aware of as they are learning.
It would be more overall goal to model a positive attitude and atmosphere towards reading. I would spend time teaching students how everything we do involves reading in some way. From reading instructions on tests, to solving math problems, driving, cooking to using a computer, I would show students the importance that words and reading have on our world. I will incorporate effective reading strategies and arm students with all the tools they need to be great readers. I would work to show students that reading starts with learning letters and sounds but involves
I like to say that children are decisions makers about how to use their skills they have learned in reading I can show them the path but encourage them to make the decision on how to use their knowledge. The skills that would be taught is when they would do read aloud, which helps with the students to perceive meaningful wholes and it helps the experience of what the students are hearing and learning. The students need to set the... ... middle of paper ... ...rt with it being teacher, teacher, teacher, student, during the discussion and then will eventually lead it to teacher, student, student, student, and it would go from there to student, student, student, teacher. Instead of teaching lessons in literacy, we as teachers are more likely to provide models of literacy activities for children by reading it to them first. Practicing encourages students to be aware of what they're doing while they complete reading assignments.
I believe that every student has the ability to learn how to read in one form or another. I must assess all of my students’ learning styles in order to meet their specific needs in the development of reading. I must also provide them with meaningful instruction and with a variety of rich appropriate books. It is crucial that my students are motivated to learn how to read, and I can do this by providing them with that meaningful instruction and by using books that will hold their interests and attention. It is my job to motivate them to learn how to read, so they will then want to read independently when they start to gather those skills.
Students will then decide how they will use text features to inform the reader. They will use the examples from the read alouds or other nonfiction books to determine how they will arrange their text features. Throughout the entire process I want to create an environment that lets my students know that I believe in them and that are capable of reaching the caliber of the authors in the read alouds. My students will feel comfortable sharing about their individualized writing process
To cater various learning styles, it is necessary to devise various kinds of tasks and activities. All of them are carried out in English to immerse students in an English-speaking environment. To prove this concept fruitful a lesson plan has been devised with appropriate activities and a short story has been selected as a model. Key words: Literature in Language classroom, short story, language skills classes, Lesson Plan "Literature is, first of all, to be experienced, to be enjoyed, to be appreciated, to be loved. Each reader, in the process of experiencing a literary work, both brings meaning to and takes meaning from that work."
Instructional material is another educational factor affecting students reading performance. Teachers have a lot of material to teach students to read, such as trade books, chapter books, basal readers, and technological material, but teacher’ role is to find a material that would fit students as well as advances students’ strengths, to find the material to match the reader (Cox, 2015). The teacher has consider students’ interest, their choice, size of the book, and their background knowledge using material, so students would be able to construct meaning while using their strengths. Classroom environment can influence students’ reading performance. To become good readers, children have to expose to a lot of print and in many forms, they have to be immersed in literacy experience.
Through my own classroom research, I have learned to listen to children, to observe the multitude of ways in which they learn, and to examine the elements that encourage their growth. Each day must be devoted to writing, reading, and interacting with literature. Children learn to read by reading. They learn to write by writing. Listening to and talking about literature enhances both processes.
The purpose of this activity would be to help students become better readers by connecting reading and writing, engaging in critical thinking and learning about how to interpret a text and formulating thoughtful personal responses to what they read, help learn decoding and fluency skills as well as learn new vocabulary words. Finally, the last group of students would be engaged in practicing phonics, which is a way of teaching reading and spelling that stresses symbol-sound relationships. You could see students play phonics games on PBSKids.org, or work on a particular phonics, rhyme and other literacy skill on the website called ReadWriteThink.org. and/or Lexia. Computer-assisted instruction would be an engaging activity, which would benefit and develop students’ reading skills.
