1. A. In your own words, please describe the reasons that culturally and/or linguistically diverse students are less likely to receive instruction in higher-order thinking skills/critical thinking skills (also referred to by Au (2006) as “comprehension strategies.”) A: Although culturally diverse students are equally capable of performing tasks which include utilizing critical thinking skills, they may be unable to receive such instructions due to academic ability as conceived by the instructor, academic performance which may lead to also settling them for basic graduation rather than college preparation. B. Knowing this, what are some specific ways in which you, as an educator, can rectify this situation? A: The best way to ensure that all the students in the room receive the instructions to utilize the critical thinking skills is pass the instructions to the students as a single body by this every one receives same instructions, Also ignoring categorizing the academic ability of the student and having the same expectations for each one of the students in the class and when teaching the higher-level thinking skills it should be conveyed to students as a single body and the tasks should be assigned to the students in such a way that it should help advance students in developing the skills as well as also facilitate peer tutoring in the group. 2. Please write down a brief description of a way that you could teach each of the reading comprehension strategies to culturally and/or linguistically diverse students (if you would like you can separate your answer into six, small paragraphs-one for each strategy). Please explain how each activity would support the specific reading comprehension strategy. A: I. Prediction: The best way to teach this method is to give wings to their imagination and this could be possible with context which can be intriguing to children, I would choose a Harry Potter book and ask the children what might include in the book and show some visualizations from the book this will let them think and visualize about the context and predicting about the book.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
