Learning to Read Does Not End in Fourth Grade

Learning to Read Does Not End in Fourth Grade | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Word-processing skills develop even past fifth grade

 

A new study published in the journal Developmental Science questions that assumption, showing that children are still learning to read past fourth and even fifth grade.

 

The shift to automatic word-processing, in which the brain recognizes whether a group of symbols constitutes a word within milliseconds, allowing fluid reading that helps the reader focus on the content of the text rather than on the words, may occur later than previously thought.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, July 24, 3:03 PM

"So if fourth-graders aren’t quite reading to learn, then when does the shift toward more complete automatic word-processing occur? According to Coch, that probably happens some time between fifth grade and college—a period she says that hasn’t been studied.


For now, the results strongly suggest that reading skills need to continue to be nurtured during that period. “


This certainly does suggest that teachers beyond fourth grade are still teachers of reading,” says Coch.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 24, 10:09 PM

It might be that learning reading is a life-long learning and becomes more automatic as we practice, but readers never stop learning.

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations

Teaching Without Walls: Life Beyond the Lecture: 8 Tips for Making Beautiful Presentations | digital divide information | Scoop.it

by Michele Pecansky-Brock

 

"Humans are visual creatures. Creating and engaging with visual content was more innate to our species than text.  But beyond the "what came first" argument, we must understand the power of images to engage the affective domain of learning.  For a moment, reflect on your childhood memories. What comes to mind? How much of what you remember is imprinted in memory because someone took photographs of those moments?  "Our personal memories, our lives are shaped through images. And as they have become more accessible to educators, understanding how to use them effectively to persuade, impact, empower, and inspire others is an important part of communicating."

Terri Rice's curator insight, July 28, 1:41 PM

Blended learning is proven itself to be effective, efficient, and powerful. So what are the rest of educators waiting for? A bolt of lightening to hit them? This format for learning should be the norm in ALL levels of education in every part of the country. Money should not be an issue if the President really means what he says about educating all the children in America. I would like to see a study completed on crime rates versus increased blended learning. Does this style improve urban and suburban youngsters abilities to avoid falling into crime?
