The Key Points in the Text Reading
Good reading strategy requires a teacher to read in a very efficient way. The best strategy is first to enable the students to know what they have to know. They should know that reading is done with a purpose and not simply reading for pleasure. A second step is to highlight how deeply to study the material. This is through skimming through the material if one needs shallow knowledge, one can skim through a material. For moderate knowledge one can scan through the material where one reads the introduction and summaries in detail. But if detailed knowledge is required the best reading technique is to first overview the subject. This will assist in an understanding of the structure of the topic. Then when reading, one will grasp the details of the material through receptive reading. The best technique to get full understanding is through SQ3R (Howard, 2009, p 120).
While helping exceptional children in reading, I have to have creative ideas for accommodation and modification of the education curriculum. This will help me serve the particular needs of the student because their ability differs from one student to another. Each of the method should benefit each student.
Is should also consider the fact that their strengths are the key to success. They thrive on intellectual challenges in their areas of ability and interest. These student require full support and this can be provided with informally and formalized individualized education program. The support will come from constant encouragement , compensation strategy and accommodation of the areas of weakness of the child. These children should be placed in school that meets the need of the twice exceptional children which has become a challenge for parents. Therefore as a teacher, I will have to be well informed to help parents place their children in institutions where they can be fully assisted either in a private or public school.
