  • Effective Reading Proposal

    I have often thought of studying effective reading strategies that would benefit my students with DS. I am familiar with the sight word and phonetic approaches; however, I hope to target my research on a specific method that I can easily implement. This research helped me address my research question: “How can I effectively teach children with DS to read and what method can I employ?” I discovered that I can teach the Oelwein’s “top-down” literacy method that begins with meaningful sight word instruction then progresses to in-context phonics instruction, resulting in the acquisition of literacy skills by students with DS (DSRFCANADA,…

  • Diverse Classroom Reflection

    This lesson won’t be a game. Partner work is beneficial for young students as long as they follow the class rules of a “turn and talk” activity.

  • Sight Word Development Essay

    The first phase of sight word development consists of the pre-alphabetic phase. Ehri (1995) stated that during this phase, "beginners remember how to read words by forming connections between selected visual attributes of words and their pronunciations or meanings and storing these associations in memory" (p. 118). Children at this phase have not advanced any alphabet knowledge. Instead, children can read sight words by memorizing the visual signals around or in the word (Gaskin, Ehri, Cress,…

Ironic really for a word enthusiast, but the things that mean the most always seem above the words that describe them. A passage leaves a more lasting impression than a piece of art. A novel can strike an awe into me that is bigger, brighter, and more fantastic than the night sky itself.

  • Tretheway Metaphors

    The Tretheway poem that I choose was “Theories of Time and Space”. The reason why I choose this poem was because it was the best one I could play around with and connect to the photo of Mrs. Benson diving into the water.
