Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | Dyslexia and Early Literacy Success for All Students | 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.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, July 3, 4:01 AM

Interesting article about developing reading skills.

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, July 4, 6:08 AM

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.

Randy Kulman's curator insight, July 4, 7:27 AM

reading is reading!
