TOO MUCH STINK'N PHONICS

Phonics is the ability to associate sounds with letters or letter patterns. Phonics is one of four ways used to identify individual words as we read. The other three are: (a) analogy [word families], (b) morphemic awareness [prefix, suffix, affix, root], and (c) context clues [semantics]. Phonics instruction is very important, but it should never be taught as the sole component in a reading program. If reading instruction consists only of phonics, the other word identification skills will not develop. Reading instruction that is effective simultaneously develops all four word identification skills.

TOO MUCH STINK'N PHONICS

ARE WE STILL TALKING ABOUT WHOLE LANGUAGE? YUP.

In viewing online discussion groups and reading various articles related to reading instruction and struggling readers, it is clear that many believe that ‘whole language’ is a bad thing. All well and good, but one should understand exactly what whole language is before rejecting it.

WRITING SHOULD BE PART OF READING INSTRUCTION

After wide reading, writing is probably the next best thing you can use to help struggling readers. You can often hear beginning and emergent readers sounding out words as they listen to find the correct letter-sounds. This helps in the development of the phonetic cuing system. Writing also invites students to focus on word order, grammar, and the logical structure of the language. In this way it also develops the syntactical cuing system.

UNDERSTANDING READING FROM A COGNITIVE PERSPECTIVE

This podcast describes how our brain creates meaning with text from a cognitive perspective. The information processing model, sometimes called the standard memory model, is used here. It depicts the process our brain uses to take in information as well as how we analyze, organize, store, and retrieve information. It also accounts for the two-way flow of information that occurs during the reading process.

HUMANISTIC LEARNING THEORY

Psychologists Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow are generally thought to be the founders of modern humanistic learning theory (DeCarvalho, 1991). Humanistic learning theory is not as easily defined as some learning theories. Indeed, there are differing views on what humanistic learning theory is or might be. And like other learning theories described in this book, they share common elements. However, all views on humanistic learning seem to share three overriding tenets: First, humans are by their very nature evolving, self-developing creatures. As such, we have a natural inclination to learn and develop fully. Second, learning is enhanced when educational experiences align with these natural desires. And third, the goal of education should be to enable each person to develop his or her full potential.
