Reading and Writing - A Review of Experience and Reflection

***** paper reflects on my experiences tutoring two 6th grade students for 10 sessions. Half needed reading comprehension help and half needed ***** with writing skills. Overall the experience tutoring others was positive. One of the students, Jessica, was an exceptional reader, but *****d difficulty when trying to put her thoughts to paper to provide adequate ***** samples. Nathan had difficulty with both ***** and writing. The course taken introduced principles of learning that enabled me to tutor these ***** *****ly. Reading and ***** in the Content Area helps students understand why content is so important to read*****g and writing. ***** ***** shape a s*****ry in the mind of a reader, whereas when writing, ***** helps form ***** foundation of one's written word, whether they write an essay, a reflection *****, ***** novel or *****y other ***** of writing. At the beginning of ***** course I felt I did not need to review my reading ***** writing skills because I had already been a student for a dozen years; each year I learned I ***** to take ***** and writing courses or had to turn in papers relative to the subject I studied (like History).

For example, a scientific p*****per would have different content than a paper written for a h*****tory class. The writer would have to present information for the science paper in the ********** of brief narratives, tables and graphs to help make a point. For a history review however, the ***** must incorporate a thesis or main idea, and then support that idea with adequate content. The information provided must also be verified; the writer can ***** verification into the body by citing authors or the research of other writers that influenced the writer's w*****k. All guidelines should encourage students to engage in oral reviews, or to review ***** material ***** read or write aloud, so they better ***** or comprehend, and better remember what it is they are learn*****g. This is a le*****rning strategy that helps solidify what is learned in the classroom with what one thinks in the m*****d. Far *****o often it seems students drift in and out of lecture; they may or may not pay attention. However, if one must read aloud, then they must pay attention; and, if they write something they then ***** aloud, ***** might be able to discover any
