Review

In the previous module, Teaching Reading to Adults, the final activity was the Language Experience Approach. This combines reading and writing, and is a useful method of not only developing reading skills but also beginning to understand the writing process. At first, when you and your student share a Language Experience, you will write what she tells. Later, as she grows more confident and skilled, she can write as well.

Many of the reading comprehension strategies and the vocabulary and word recognition skills that the beginning reader develops will improve if the reader is also writing questions and summaries, new words and their definitions. Writing down the sight words as the list grows will help the learner to recognize them over time. These two skills reinforce each other.

It helps the self-esteem of the student to dictate to the tutor his/her own story or thoughts. He/she will then be more able to read it back.

This is just what my college teachers have said. You can't have your first draft be your final draft it takes stages.

I agree that writing can assist with reading comprehension development and vice versa. However, given that writing is a process, will the already anxious student become more anxious? Meaning, because so much is involved, chunking material will be best so as to now overwhelm the student.
