they want to see if their predictions were true. Asking questions during reading is also a good for students because it ensures students are following along and it can tell the teacher who is struggling and who is comprehending as you mentioned. I think asking students to recall what they learned and to recap vocabulary will help them retain what they have listened to and learned from the story. It also gives them a way to summarize the story in their own words which helps to remember the story better. Victoria Week 4 Day 2 Participation: Teresa, Thank you for responding to my post. I definitely agree with you on the point of students feeling more confident if they understand the text better. Knowing and understanding what you are reading will make a student more confident but it will also help them in other subjects and avenues. Being a confident reader can take you a long way both in and outside of school. This is the main reason I believe in making sure students practice by using activities and games that given them a better understanding of what they are reading. Also, if a student is confident with reading and understanding the text, it also cuts down on misbehavior caused by insecurity. When students are unaware of what they are doing or lack confidence within themselves, it can cause disruption and chaos within the classroom. Ensuring students feel more confidence due to a better understanding of the test not only helps them as individuals but helps the class as a whole. Victoria Week 4 Day 3 Participation: Tangela, The school I currently work in uses System 44 and Read 180 as well. In one of the sixth grade instructional classrooms, they use System 44 for phonic practice as you mentioned. When they get on to the program, it gives them sounds or words to repeat and sound out. Because they have head phones with microphones, it allows them to hear themselves say the word or sound and to ensure if they have said it right. This is very beneficial for the students because it helps the
recognize the word and how to say it correctly. The Read 180 classes are smaller and contains a mixture of sixth, seventh, and eight graders. It is set up that way because those students are the students who struggle the most within the school for reading comprehension. Thank you for sharing. It is nice to know that other districts and schools are using System 44 and Read 180 programs as well. Victoria WEEK FIVE Week 5 DQ1: What is an acquired language disorder?
