Reading 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 tutoring others was positive. One of the *****, Jessica, was an exceptional reader, but experienced 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 of learning that enabled me to tu*****r these students positively. Reading ***** Writing in the Content Area helps students understand why content is so important to read*****g and writing. ***** ***** shape a story in the mind of a reader, whereas when writing, content helps form ***** foundation ***** one's written word, whether they write an essay, a reflection *****, a novel or any other ***** of writing.

However, this course introduced new theories of writing I ***** not ***** ***** was surprised about. *****se key theories or concepts I learned included KWLS theory, pre-reading strategies, and strategies for composing, drafting, revising and evaluating ***** using a proper critiquing methodology.

The in*****ation provided must also be verified; the writer can ***** verification into the body by citing authors or the research of other *****s 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 ***** ***** comprehend, and better remember what it is they ***** learning. Th***** is a le*****rning strategy that helps solidify ***** is learned in the classroom with what one thinks in ***** m*****d. Far too often it seems students drift in and out of lecture; they ***** or may not pay attention. However, if ***** must read aloud, then they must ***** attention; and, if they wr*****e someth*****g they ***** ***** aloud, ***** might be able to discover *****
