I CAN READ WEB CLASS

To ensure our students’ continued learning, our I Can Read Web-Class will begin on the 5th of April, 2020 (Sunday). The classes will be conducted online via our I Can Read Web-Class platform with “live” lessons.





I Can Read web-classes are not pre-recorded lessons. We utilise an online teaching platform which enables teachers and students alike to join in a live virtual classroom and learn in a collaborative online environment. The programme seeks to empower both teachers and students by providing them with a platform that they use to make online learning both personal and engaging.

Teachers will create interactive blackboards using our digitised I Can Read resources, which will encourage students to collaborate, connect and most importantly, learn. Video conferencing tools are also available on the platform that will allow teachers to interact meaningfully with students through songs, built-in games and videos. This will help to continue I Can Read’s philosophy of having fun while learning.

Each lesson will be filled with fun and engaging activities that will help your child continue learning from the safety of your home.

WHAT IS THE BEST APPROACH TO LEARNING LITERACY SKILLS?



A good instructional approach to reading lessons will make explicit the manner in which sounds combine to create words. It will teach students that accessing the sounds accurately makes pronunciation clearer. 

As students become aware of how sounds blend together, they realise that whole, meaningful words are actually an array of smaller sounds which can be added or subtracted, stretched and blended in the process of word construction. Thus by the time these students move on to looking at letters, what they are able to demonstrate is that letters representing sounds combine, as do sounds and are in fact pictures of sound. This is the first essential stage on the way to learning to read the English language. Sometimes students may give such request as help me to write my essay.

However, it is by no means the end of the story. English is a hybrid language and lacks an agreed rule system for its grammatical constructs, its syntactical outlines and most confusing, for the pronunciation of strings of letters or combinations of letters that combine to complete words. 

Take the letter a. It can represent several different sounds, as in words like cat, gate, was, any, tall, bath and area. Or take the combination of letters ough. It is impossible to know the correct pronunciation of these letters. In the word cough, the sounds are /k/-/o/-/f/.

Now take the word bough. The sounds are now /b/-/ow/ (as in cow). With the same letter sequence in words like though, through and enough, one can see that learning to read in English means knowing how to access the sound array accurately at all times. To not be able to do this means having to guess and hoping to get lucky in the attempt, frequently resulting in reading difficulties.

As English is not rule-bound, it cannot be learned by rules. The challenge faced by educators in recent times is how to empower children to accurately access the sound sequence. Once the foundational requirement to accurately manipulate the phonological array has been taught, the next challenge is how to guarantee accurate pronunciation of the sequence. 

As you saw by the example above, pronouncing the same group of letters is not always straightforward. Many words in English are unpredictable with regard to pronunciation. There has been a need for some time to create an instructional approach that would remove the confusion and ambiguities that can arise when group of letters combine in unpredictable ways. If children needs help with literary essay parents may visit sites like customessayorder.com or essayzoo.org.

Children must know whether to say /off/ or /ow/ (for example) in a word like cough. Additionally many words in written English contain letters that seemingly make no contribution to the pronunciation of the word. This can lead to confusion and reading difficulties for any student. A word like apple could as easily be written /apl/ where the three sounds are all present and eliminating the remaining letters /p/ and /e/.

Historical conventions are not easy to override and few have tried or succeeded. Webster managed to eliminate a few anomalies in written English and changed colour to color for instance, but what has happened is that generally the spelling conventions established by the 17th century have remained in place since and have been impervious to change, notwithstanding the differences between written British English and written American English.

WHY DO SOME STRUGGLE WITH READING?



There are a number of contributing factors as to why many children have reading difficulties. They are comprehensively covered in the book, Dealing with Dyslexia and Other Reading Difficulties, written by registered psychologists and founders of I Can Read Antony Earnshaw and Annabel Seargeant and published by Pearson Education. 

The authors, who have spent nearly 20 years investigating reading development as research psychologists, support the view that in general, poor reading skills are the consequence of ineffective and inadequate instructional approaches.

What this means is that, in general, children fail to learn to read English easily or well because they are not taught properly. Well-meaning teachers may have exposed students to the alphabet prematurely, making it confusing for a beginner reader who has not yet developed sufficient pre-reading skills such as syllabic and phonemic awareness.

Through our reading programmes taught by Reading Specialists, I Can Read ensures that learning how to read is a rewarding and fun process for children.
