Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | Teaching Reading | 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.

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.

Just don't forget the "As long as this occurs alongside additional intervention to address their decoding difficulties...." part.

The Common Core require that we get students engaged with reading on a deeper level. This infographic on Close Reading is designed for students and provides suggestions for students to follow: Look for Clues, Ask Questions, Make Your Case, and Prove It. . There is also a version available for teachers that has additional details. Both may be downloaded.

Something to consider for those who use UDL for lesson or unit planning.

Sophie Charlotte Foster's curator insight, October 8, 2013 4:00 PM

This article describes how students and learners with dyslexia are able to be assisted in reading format and content due to a new technological font having been invented, which is designed to stop readers from jumbling, mirroring or mixing up letters which results in slow reading as well as difficult reading/learning. It also discusses the lack of knowledge about dyslexia and about potential funding in Kenya to help underprivileged families, with children who have dyslexia, to receive help financially in assisting their child in overcoming dyslexia and helping their learning experience improve.
