Improve Your Child's Literacy Development

faezams's insight:

Literacy development form a neuro science perspective.

 - Parents reading to children is great because there is one to one attention, parents simplify the language and increase meaning making.

-  Spelling is a difficult concept because phonic rules need to be learnt and then the exception to the rules need to be learnt too and  memorised. Thus, increase visual and auditory memory of words by fun games, scrabble, and practice.

-  To be ready for school children need to be able to sit and listen, pay attention, communicate their needs effectively, follow direction and be interested in books and reading.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 11, 2014 9:38 PM

Teaching students to ask questions is not an easy task. This is the first in a series of two posts that will explore ways that teachers may ask questions to help their students "learn more from text and from the world around them." He is using the book Goldilocks and the Three Bears to model a number of strategies to use in the classroom

* Tell - Read the story or have them read the story. Ask questions that refer back to the text

* Suggest - Provide "children with choices about what might happen next or possible opinions they might have."

* Ask a closed question - "These questions generally elicit yes or no answers. They can bring students to different temporal areas or elaborations of details, but the extent of this is structured by the question."

* Ask an open ended question - questions that provide lots of options.

* The two-question rule - follow the first question with a second question allowing students to probe more deeply (and sometimes a third question).

Find examples of questions for each area listed above as well as the reasoning behind why the two-question rule is a good one to use.

Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."
