Be observant, pay attention to the things that motivate and what squelches motivation. Just as we use different approaches to teach different children, in the same way what motivates one child might not motivate another. If you know the learning style that best suits your child, learning comes much more easily when the lesson makes sense. If your child doesn't want to read or is having problems with comprehension, read to your child and encourage your child to read aloud to you. You will be amazed at how much more your child will grasp when he reads aloud to you. This is especially true for children unmotivated to read independently.
Learn to read or read to learn?
Hope that we are helping kids learn to read first.
Kids across globe are asking for reasons. They are fed up of memorizing spellings & pronunciation. Hope we are also helping them develop automaticity in reading. Anyway, came across a test for English teachers and thought that teachers on PBS would pass.
Please take screenshot of the score and send it to raahuldhillon@
