Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | ADHD, Video Games, Apps, and Digital Media | Scoop.it

Many students with weak decoding skills can read: with their ears. As teachers, we can make a strategic choice of differentiating in our lessons in order to allow a poor reader to ‘read with their ears’ in class until the time they can read with their eyes. As long as this occurs alongside additional intervention to address their decoding difficulties, we may be improving his or her life chances by providing this opportunity.

Interesting article about developing reading skills.

Using all the resources available to us, while we systematically teach children the skills they need.

An interesting article - relevant to literacy skills and accessibility. Helping pupils to be able to access the curriculum despite poor reading skills seems to be a no-brainer.

Yet research has already told us a lot about how we read now. First and foremost, it emphasises that even using paper, there are many different approaches. Most of us probably have a settled style: you might be a skimmer, a skipper, a front-to-back completist, a keeper of the pristine page or an obsessive writer of marginalia. Whatever the case, our habits have probably been created largely as combination of childhood experience and how the medium we read in is nudging us.

Ebooks versus papel.

Debra Evans's curator insight, July 10, 2014 6:28 PM

Definitely worth reading this article. I have heard many teachers proclaim that reading a "book" is more beneficial than an ereader, etc. I have not necessarily bekieved what they say, but the evidence is just not there yet, however it is beginning to come and my own anecdotal evidence seems to resonate with what is being stated here.
