Reflection Paper


***** and Writing - A Review of Experience and Reflection

This paper reflects on my experiences tutoring two 6th grade students for 10 sessions. Half needed reading comprehension help ***** half needed help with writing skills. Overall the experience ***** 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 ***** with both reading and writing. The course taken introduced principles ***** learning that enabled me to tutor these ***** positively. Reading ***** Writing in the Content Area helps students understand why content is so important to reading and writing. Content helps shape a story in the mind of a reader, whereas when writing, ***** helps form the foundation of one's written word, whether they write an essay, a reflection *****, a novel or any other ***** of writing.

For ***** history ***** however, the writer must incorporate a thesis or main idea, and then support that idea with adequate *****. The information provided must also be verified; the ***** can incorporate verification into the body by citing authors or the research of other writers that influenced the writer's work. All ***** should encourage *****s to engage in oral reviews, or ***** review ***** material they read or write aloud, so ***** better understand or comprehend, and better remember what it is they are *****. Th***** is a learning strategy ***** ********** solidify ***** is learned in the classroom with what one thinks in the m*****d. Far too often it seems students drift in and out of lecture; they may or ***** not pay attention. However, if one must read *****, then they must ***** attention; and, if they write something they ***** ***** aloud, ***** might be able to discover any
