    The goal of guided reading is for students to use these strategies independently on their way to becoming fluent, skilled readers. This will also help them to become independent writers. I model for both reading and writing and I do this through mini-lessons, and conferences because reading and writing skills do not develop naturally. “Children will internalize the meaning of written language more easily if they see appropriate role model’s writing, and when the teacher interacts with their students as they write.” (Dixon-Krauss, 1996). Teachers need to read aloud many stories.…

    As I matured as a student and took more English classes, my knowledge of literacy, reading and writing, grew. The more I began to write essays, the further it seemed to take a toll on me to deepen my understanding of proper writing techniques. I began to question myself, how can I improve my own writing skills without knowing the basic true meaning of literacy? This is when I realized the only way I’ll figure out the meaning is by letting it come to as I mature as a writer. When I was a student in Junior High School I found a true love with reading and writing.…

    Strickland (2005) explained, “Children do need to learn by reading, but what teachers need to do is support them as they read, so they can learn what real readers do. This isn’t done through skills and drills, phonics worksheets, or sequencing activities. It’s done through books and talk and listening and thinking” (p. 2). Comprehension lessons and activities. Lessons in comprehension and reading strategies are essential before, during, and after reading.…

    Going into High School, my experience with the Sponsors their have shown me a new way of just reading a book. Now when I read a book, I try to find a movie or a graphic version of it to help put words into pictures. With writing, I grew up not wanting write, but my Sponsors showed me how writing can help me remember what I just read by writing words I do not know and their definition or writing lines to force what I’m writing to be remembered. With this new knowledge of literacy it has helped me become a better person and student because the skills that have been taught to me by the numerous sponsors through my years of growing made me better understand a subject by writing it out rather than hearing it in a lecture form or practices shown to me that I now use to help me. Within Skyline High School, I had many Sponsors helped me out in their own subjects but when it came to subjects like College, Personal Statements or linking with life after High School, I had little help from the Institution which led to me to do my own research to prepare what is to come for my…

    "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you 'll go," said Dr. Seuss. These famous words by a great author show that the love and understanding of reading are important parts of learning. Both of these issues are part of the struggle educators now face: let students choose their own books to foster a love of reading or select books for their class to teach the skills necessary to understand the material they read. Some teachers believe that students who are limited to the books they choose will not be engaged and therefore not learn as much from the material.…

    Some of the required readings were Romeo and Juliet, The Odyssey, and some poetry. In this class the way we went about reading the text was during class a volunteer or a chosen victim would read a couple of passages out loud and the teacher would aid in helping us understand what was going on and the analysis behind what we just read. When we were done with the readings we would usually have to write an essay on a topic about the text. The topics were for the most part chosen by the teacher. At the time I considered it a good thing because one of my weaknesses in writing is choosing a topic to write about.…
