RE: Pronouns
Sat Jun 13, 2015 09:46

Many of my students also struggle with pronouns. Pronouns are such an abstract topic that with lack of attention to the text would cause frustration for students with ASD. I like the idea to correlate the main character name with the pronoun that is used. This would help my students to understand the connection. I have never heard of prompted questions and unprompted questions throughout my courses. I would like to have some examples of these questions so I can better understand.

    I enjoyed the article this week. It was one that I thought has been most useful to me so far. The author talked about how some ASD students have difficulty making the connection of pronouns to the... more

      I really like this part about pronouns. I never really thought about anyone having trouble relating pronouns. It makes since that students with ASD would need a lesson like this to enforce and relate ... more
    • Examples? - Jean Milton, Fri Jun 12 20:38
      What would be an example of an unprompted question? Would it be a question that would be about the student but may relate to the story in some way? Do you know if one type of question provokes a... more

        An unprompted question would be more about the student's personal experience that may relate to something in the book, but not the main idea is how I understand it. Your question about provoking a... more

      Nice post. I really liked what you had to say about pronouns and how they relate to comprehension. I find my self very often misusing pronouns in my writing and speaking and then I have to repeat... more

      Pronoun referents are indeed difficult because they require inferencing. What makes some even harder is the concept of deixis. That words can change meanings depending on who is talking. I am me if I ... more

        This confusing concept of switching pronouns (I think I had to read your comment 3 times to understand it) reminds me of a video we watched in SPE 3300 about some learning disabilities, in which the... more

        I totally understand. I think this is why it is important to continue going over 'simple' pronouns. I think this is why it is so interesting to me because of all the different meanings the words can... more
    • Prompted vs Unprompted - McKenzi Davis, Fri Jun 12 10:46
      I thought what you said about prompted vs unprompted questions was interesting. I have never thought about questions in the two various categories. In concern to the two types of questions:... more

        From what I understood, the unprompted questions will help the student relate the information in the book to a personal experience. I struggled with the same thing, wondering if it could be a... more
