Guided Response: First review several of your classmate’s posts. Respond to two classmates who chose to summarize the topics that you did not and answer the questions they created. After posting the responses to their questions, summarize what information was solidified as a result of their questioning strategy. Most importantly, offer suggestions that will help your classmates to more effectively cover any information that should be stressed about the topic they summarized.
Students do not learn the individual sounds of the language by practicing them in isolation from words, nor words in isolation from sentences and meaning.”(2015) this is why phonemic awareness is important to teach. Phonemic awareness is how what students are taught to teach them to read. They learn to hear individual sounds in spoken words. This awareness is learned by showing students that some words have the same sounds, but a letter of the word will be different. Phonemic awareness and phonics are not the same. Phonemic awareness teaches students that the sounds of letters make words were as phonics teaches students that there is a relationship between letters and sound that make up words to be read.
