***** 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 ***** with writing skills. Overall the experience ***** others was positive. One of the *****, 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 ***** learning that enabled me to tutor these students **********. Reading ***** ***** in the Content *****rea helps students understand why content is so important to read*****g and writing. Content helps 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 ********** other form of writing.

For a history review however, the writer must incorporate a thesis or main idea, and then support ***** idea with adequate *****. The information *****d 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 students to engage in oral reviews, or ***** review the material ***** read or write aloud, so *****y better ***** ***** comprehend, ***** better remember what it is they are *****. This is a learn*****g strategy ***** ********** solidify ***** is learned in the classroom with what one thinks in ***** mind. Far too often it seems students drift in and out of lecture; they may or ***** not pay attention.
