The morphology and vocabulary in this article really explain what processes are needed for readers and how to effectively teach them vocabulary.This article will prove helpful with my tutoring assignment and I love the name vocabulogic.

I am very interested in the topic of disciplinary literacy and I've been looking into it a lot lately. The author has a good point when she discusses the issue that literacy teachers don't have enough content knowledge and content teachers don't have enough literacy knowledge to integrate the two effectively. We need to find a way to bring these two areas of expertise together. Thanks for posting this!
Becky Free's comment, May 24, 2012 3:16 AM
This article reminds me of something another student just posted in one of my other courses; she stated that before the third grade our students are "learning to read" but in third grade and after, our students are "reading to learn". I really latched onto this thought because all the skills we teach our students when we teach them to read are not always helpful when our students are trying to decode a mathematics problem. It is like learning a foreign language and surely they will need new reading tools to help them understand this discipline. I can see disciplinary literacy becoming the next piece of preparing all-around teachers. Sure we should know basic reading strategies for our struggling readers, however adding to our teacher tool belt is Never a bad idea!!! :)

Visualization is something I think will help students with comprehension, this article more about communication but there are some good points about visualizing thinking.
Liz Becker's comment, June 13, 2012 6:36 PM
I like this. I think #4 might be a good way to describe and help students with this when it comes to multiple texts. Also, I worked at a tutoring center where one of the tutors was really good at getting struggling readers to visualize what they were reading. He had them develop and explain the "movie" in their mind in order to aid in comprehension. It is a pretty cool strategy.
