Reading Strategies
Teaching young people to read isn't the easiest task in the world, but in order to prepare children for their future educational journeys -- and for life as intelligent citizens -- they need to learn to read. And they need to learn to read well because it opens doors, it inspires stories and takes the reader on journeys -- not because schools require reading and it's something they "have to do." For students who do know how to read but are "stalled readers" and don't stay on a page of content for more than a few seconds, there are strategies for them as well.

hen a teacher creates enthusiasm and stimulates great interest in a subject, children are far more interested in whatever it is the teacher is presenting. Kids crave stories that stir up their emotions, and the teacher needs to launch….

Issues like self-esteem can impact prognosis. Students who are highly motivated, highly intelligent, and highly confident are the most likely to succeed and excel in spite of their reading disorder or in some cases, because of it. Learning how to maximize strengths in other academic areas can help students with reading disorders build self-esteem. Similarly, students who are able to ask for and receive assistance in subject areas rich in reading comprehension such as history may achieve academic and professional goals with aplomb.

eading Education
Special needs and special education students have traditionally had more immediate needs in cooperative learning settings when compared to typical students. To be an effective teacher is not always as easy as telling the students to just sit-down and read. Teachers have to understand that there can be less obvious problems at hand like dyslexia, AD/HD, or English as a second language to name a few. When there are underlying issues, both the teacher and the student have to work more closely together in order to reach some desired outcome. "Teaching effectiveness is inferred from the product that was created; it is the product that is the indicator of scholarship." (Cranton, 2000)

This report aims to provide the general background information about a recently completed clinical case study. The underlying object of this case study was to assess a student with some sort of reading difficulty, set up a program….

This needs to be role modeled by the peers and adults with whom the young child comes in contact. When children observe this strong positive interest in learning, be it through reading books, playing word games, telling stories or many other activities, they will surely follow suit. First, they have an innate desire to learn. Second, they want their actions to receive a positive reaction. Third, more than anything, they want the people they love and respect to return these feelings. From the moment a baby is born, it will be aware of the facial and body language communicated by others with whom it interacts. It is thus never too early to begin the literacy process.

Reading is an activity that many people take for granted. Here in America it is easy for us to take for granted a fully stocked library, or access to hundreds of classic works through our computers. Yet, I wonder how many people actually take advantage of these rich opportunities that they have? With all of the study guides and assorted methods of getting around reading, why do it? Is something written in a book really more important than getting out and living life?
Henry Thoreau took on that very thought back in 1845 when he began living in Massachusetts in his cabin on Walden Pond. Thoreau was very thoroughly educated before he took this break from city life, yet he speaks often about how this "residence was more favorable, not only to thought, but to serious reading." (65) I can't imagine being as smart as Thoreau, yet feeling like there was….

Reading Education: How much is enough?
In general, the conclusions regarding research about current student's reading education are that students do not read enough, either in class or on their own. But given this accepted truism, that students are not reading up to standard, the second question is what must teachers do inside the classrooms to ensure that students are reading adequate amounts of literature. Also, does mere volume ensure that students are meeting grade-level reading proficiency standards?

In the second chapter of his text, hat Really Matters for Struggling Readers: Designing Research-Based Programs Richard Allington emphasizes the need for more in-school reading, noting evidence indicating that increased reading volume raises the level of reading proficiency (Allington, p.24). There is a strong correlation between later academic excellence and sheer reading volume, he states. "The classic study was conducted by Anderson, ilson and Fielding (1988). In this study, fifth-grade students kept reading logs….

eading is fundament skill necessary for our children to compete in a more globalized world. Evidence has shown strong correlations between education and income. These correlations have endured multiple generations and reflect the need for continual improvement on the part of students. The ability to read and comprehend passages therefore is the first of many building blocks needed to be help students within a more competitive and highly dynamic environment. Children with strong reading skills are better able to learn new and challenging techniques. They are able to learn varying aspects of life and synthesize them in a meaningful manner. They will even be able to expand their horizons by learning concepts that different from the traditional books learned in school.

This particular program is designed for grades K-8 and is both a reading and a language arts program. This reading program has as a foundation "literacy instruction that stimulates, teaches, and extends the communication and thinking skills that will allow students to become effective readers, writers, communicators, and lifelong learners." The program also uses themes to instruct students.
In addition to programs that addressed the needs of beginning students, there are reading programs that are specifically designed to assist middle school and high school students. According to an article published in Reading Research Quarterly, many students in Middle School and High School have poor literacy skills. hen high school students have poor literary skills, the possibility of going on to college is extremely limited. In fact the article reports that 49% of high school students that took the ACT in 2004 were not ready for college based on their reading….

In this reading, Fine examines how coordination efforts have impacted the provision of health and social welfare services in Australia. He specifically addresses two different, but related issues: community-based care services for elderly individuals and people with disabilities, and increased coordination between different service providers such as community-based care organizations, residential care services, hospitals, and other healthcare providers. What he attempts to show is how increased coordination has led to clients receiving higher quality services at different levels of care, and should, ideally, result in clients being placed in the appropriate care environments. He also looks at governmental policies and how those policies impact coordination between care-providers, suggesting that when government policies do not support….

Reading Skills
Motivation and Background Building: Pre-Reading Phase

Appropriate activities may include the following:

Vocabulary instruction

Prior knowledge connection

Skill Development (may be done throughout)

Establish purpose for reading

Predicting

Teacher think-aloud

Setting/location/context

Development of time/historical context

There were four vocabulary words that the students learned during this phase: imperious, treacherous, tenacity and betrothal. They were provided with contextual sentences (three sentences in length) to introduce them to the words, guessed what they meant, received dictionary definitions, and had to use the words in a sentence. The prior knowledge connection included a summary of the first two chapters of The Count of Monte Cristo, in which the children were introduced to the characters and the plot thus far. The development of the time/historical context contained information about the setting / location; I taught the children about the French Revolution and Napoleon's role in it, as well as the dangers of partisan politics in France in the early 19th century. This….

reading is how a number of factors expressly related to power can account for quiescence in an exploitative situation in which one may otherwise think there should be revolt. This theme was widely discussed in the first chapter of this book, and contends that the exploitive nature of power can best be understood by its three dimensions. The first dimension relates to changing the behavior of the repressed, the second dimension is a mobility of bias, and the third dimension is a pervasion of power in a variety of cognitive, social and political constructs so that the oppressed cannot even conceive of rebellion. There are also various mechanisms that account for the assertion of power for some and the repression of power of others related to factors such as language, voting, and the inclusion and exclusion of people and ideas in social institutions.
The author's main usage of evidence to….

eading is the most critical skill children learn in the primary grades because it provides the foundation for the remainder of their school years and life in the real world thereafter. Parents, school teachers and administrators have all expressed concerns about how reading is taught in the United States (Alexander, n.d.). An eighteen month study by the National eading Panel focused on specific areas of reading skills, including phonemic awareness, phonics instruction, developing fluency, and vocabulary development. The Panel looked at what teachers need to know to teach and model the use of various strategies in the classroom, and how pre-service and in-service education can better prepare teachers for the important work of reading instruction.
The research found, not surprisingly, that systematic and direct instruction is the most effective way to teach children about phonemes and, later, phonics. There always seem to be children in the classroom who might be….

Edmark and Reading Matery
One of the greatest challenges for any educator is dealing with a student with reading difficulties. However, a number of different programs exist to deal with the different forms of comprehension difficulties such challenging students may face and present for an educator. hile the Edmark Reading Program is designed to bridge the gap between auditory and visual learning for developmentally disabled students, Reading Matery programs are specifically designed for students with learning disabilities, such as dyslexia. The auditory and picture matching approach of Edmark has been shown to be helpful for students from developmentally and socially disabling backgrounds, with little educational reinforcement or support, while Reading Matery seems be most suitable for students with cognitive impairment of their reading capacity who are otherwise normal.

The Edmark Reading Program was initially developed over a 15-year period between 1960 and 1975, with funding from the National Institute of Mental Health….

Instructional Strategies
Question answer strategy (QA) teaches students how and when to use their texts when answering comprehension questions. Collaboration, specifically co-teaching, has been shown to be effective with special education teachers and content-area teachers in the general education classroom. The QA strategy can enhance comprehension across different content areas.

Fenty, N.S., McDuffie-Landrum, K., and Fisher, G. (2012). Using collaboration, co- teaching, and question answer relationships to enhance content area literacy. Teaching Exceptional Children 44(6), pp. 28-37.

QA is taught through five elements of effective instruction: anticipatory set, modeling, guided practice, independent practice, and closure (Duke & Pearson, 2002, and Fisher & Frey, 2007, cited in Fenty et al., 2012).

Although word walls have been used traditionally in primary classrooms, the authors report effective use in the middle school. Over the course of year, a word wall was built by teachers and students in eighth that included vocabulary across content areas.

Louis XIV and Charles II were both monarchs at the time of significant civic unrest and allegations of government overreach and abuse, and, as such, they have many similarities.  However, the differences between the two monarchs are notable as well.  The individual differences may not be as meaningful as understanding their differences when placed into the context of the French and English monarchies and also what was happening in their countries during their reign.

Charles II was the king of England after a bloody English civil war that resulted in the execution of his father Charles....

There is no understating the importance that the Church and the development of Christianity and alternative churches have in the history of the world and the creation of modern culture.  Christianity and the Church were a driving factor behind the colonial development of the world, which required incorporating foreign aspects into worship, and led to the creation of the modern worship experience.

 
It is important to look at how the Age of Discovery, when the Catholic Church expanded around the globe by establishing missions in conquered or colonized countries with indigenous populations of people who....

Visual communication covers a wide array of topics and has become increasingly important in the modern world.  With people constantly attached to a smart device of some sort, marketers and others have a means of continuously influencing people through visual communication. Visual communication involves the use of graphics to quickly and efficiently effectuate communication.  If you have ever heard the phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words,” then you understand a little about visual communication.

Some topics to consider if you are writing an essay or a speech about visual communication include:
