Dyslexic primary pupils
Severely dyslexic pupils find learning to read and write very challenging. They often have poor memory skills and cannot always see when they have made mistakes.

Supporting Writing with Images « Teaching with the Library of Congress | Dyslexic primary pupils | Scoop.it

By Sherry Levitt

 

"Teachers agree that ease and fluency in writing come with frequent practice for a variety of purposes, whether making personal connections, analyzing information or constructing an answer to a document-based question.

 

"One way to incorporate more writing in the classroom is to create assignments using high-impact primary source images from the Library of Congress. Their real-world authenticity can rivet students’ attention, spark inquiry and draw them into a writing topic or task.

 

"To begin, find images that relate to the particular lesson, skill or curricular objective. Whatever the assignment, millions of images are readily available from the Library’s digital collections and from the Teachers Page. For prompts and questions to focus and guide students, use the teacher’s guide Analyzing Photographs and Prints. (Other versions are specifically adapted for maps, manuscripts, political cartoons, and sheet music.)"
