Finding something that works
Saturday, May 12, 2012
I spent numerous hours planning and working with a student one-on-one this year who had some very special circumstances. Due to his special circumstances, he couldn't read, didn't know the letter names or sounds, and found school to be extremely frustrating (rightfully so) and would just shut down. We tried numerous strategies to help him learn the building blocks to reading but found that many of our strategies would work for a week or so, and then his participation would just disappear and the refusal to do work would increase. One of the last things I tried with him was to develop a personal reader. I did for numerous reasons and will explain these reasons as I explain the parts associated with this reader. I've blocked out personal information.
