I didn't know that nonfictional passages help students to learn better. That's a great piece of information to have. I would have thought that students, especially younger students, relate better to fiction. However, being able to learn better from reading non-fictional passages is important because students are learning and retaining relevant information.

    This week I learned a lot about informal reading assessments through the lecture. I found myself trying to determine appropriate instruction for students that I read about or the ones that I viewed... more

      Assessing students is the first step in teaching them efficiently. Students need to be reading on their instructional level and the only way to figure that out is to assess them. I was also very... more

      I also really enjoyed the lectures this weeks. I thought they covered a lot of good information and was very helpful. In the article written by Carnahan & Williamson, they did a study about enhancing ... more

      I agree, this week was very informative and gave me lots of good ideas. The visual support ideas were ones that stuck out to me as well. In my past experiences with students with ASD, using visual... more

      I think it was great that the lecture broke down which part of the students learning should be worked on. The obvious is whichever one they struggle the most in. Is it word Identification, language... more

        I loved this weeks lectures and was really glad that this point was made. I had the same questions as you and I feel now they are answered about which one was the most important to focus on!

        Jordan, that was something I also found extremely interesting. After those components were broken down for me, I found them all equally important. I realize now that you are right, language... more

        I found this interesting as well. I was never aware of language comprehension with students who have ASD. As you said, I would have worked on one area at a time, forgetting to address language... more

        That's great that you gained so much from the three lectures, Jordan! I had never heard of the Silent Reading Comprehension model either and seeing it in a whole-to-part model helped me understand... more

          I think that it is the most important because if someone is reading something and they don't understand it what is the point of reading it?? Comprehension is the point of reading and should... more

        I agree with your statements. I guess I have not really thought of it in the ways the article broke it down. It really helped my comprehension about the importance of each and how to determine... more

      Schedules are so important to students on the autism spectrum. Routine is vital when getting these students to cooperate or be able to focus on school. By having the students school schedule in their ... more
