"Reading" Essays and Research Papers


As future teachers it is very important to make sure that our students understand print. There are students who are fully able to pronounce print but unfortunately aren’t able to comprehend what they are reading. To read I believe means to understand the meaning of words, so therefore it involves much more than pronouncing print. In Beyond Traditional Phonics, (BTP) Margaret Moustafa stated, “pronouncing print is not necessarily comprehending print” pg. 6. Unfortunately, there are many students...

The Reading Process

read them. In teaching reading to young children, word selection is often the first place where we go wrong. We pull words from thin air and try to put them into the child. Often we make matters worse by putting these strange words into printed context outside the realm of the child's experience and expecting him to read--and he cannot. Children can learn to read any word they speak. One of the greatest hoaxes in all of educational pedagogy is that which says that reading vocabulary must be developed...
