Gipe Chap. 8 & 9

Reading and writing go hand in hand. The more you work and improve your students' reading, chances are you may see some improvement in their writing and vice versa. From my experience working with students with learning disabilities (or any student for that matter), as soon as you make learning into something fun, they become very excited to do it. I let my students with a LD in written expression write about topics they choose and that is of interest to them. Suddenly, writing has turned into something they actually enjoy doing. I think that it is important for students to be able to write without judgement at times. Reading and writing are the basic skills students need in order to be successful in their education.

  1. I think it is so important that we let our students write without our judgement also. To often we get caught up in standards and what we HAVE to teach them, that we forget to just let them be them and allow them to express their feelings in any way they want, safely that is!
