Chapter 8 Review 1. How might children's individual interests contribute to differential language development? Explain. When children reach the age that they can learn new concepts from reading, it only makes sense that they would read things that interest them. Therefore, if a child reads a book about horses, he/she will learn learn vocabulary relating to horses. If a child has no interest in electronics, then she/he most likely won’t learn vocabulary or develop language related to electronics. 2. How do children progress through the different stages of reading development? Explain. The first stage is initial reading. Children start by associating each letter and then word with the proper sounds. This stage also involves substitution errors as they become more and more familiar with reading. The second stage involves confirmation and cementing down what they learned in stage one. After confirmation, the child begins to gain fluency as he/she becomes more familiar with high-frequency words and is able to read without errors. As fluency increases, the child begins ungluing from the print, meaning that the process of reading becomes more automatic and they can focus more on the meaning of the text, instead of just how to read the text. The third stage is divided into two stages; 3A and 3B. Stage 3A is when the children develop the ability to step out of their egocentric purposes and read about typical things in the world. At this point they are able to read much of adult length literature, but not necessarily the same difficulty. Stage 3B is similar to stage 3A, except their reading level is still increasing and they can read on the difficulty level of a typical adult. They are “reading to learn the new” and gaining substantial vocabulary and knowledge. Stage four, also known as the high school period, is where the child learns to read more difficult concepts, such as theories, opinions, facts and different viewpoints. This stage is important, as it prepares the students for college by

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
