Needham, United States - March 21, 2019 /PressCable/ —

CLOI launches new classes to help with student engagement. CLOI understand that the excitement in the school year has dwindled, As we continue to move through this year, we think about how to increase engagement in the learning process. You may be gearing up for standardized tests, but still have many skills to teach. Your thought may be “how can I make this learning and engagement happen?” Simple. Try something new! This is one of the busiest times of the year for teachers and students. So what vocabulary literacy strategies will you be using? CLOI can help.

These new courses are great because they help with getting students to engage and keeping their attention throughout the year. It is important to have a solid-literacy practice guide that provides the students with fun ways to read while building vocabulary. Choosing a favorite book is always a good start. Author Amelia Bedelia has a variety of books at different levels that are great for growing vocabularies for newly independent readers. The stories are funny and informative. These books discuss family, nature, and friendships (Amelia Bedelia Books, n.d). Every student in your classroom has a different learning style and interest, so a great way to provide engaged literacy instruction in the classroom, is using that favorite book, the book that will draw students in and keep their attention on the vocabulary.

A great education tool is teaching kids how to interchange words. Interchanging words is an excellent way to provide students with explicit vocabulary instruction, comprehension, text meaning, student motivation and individualization for struggling readers. For example, often times children identify shapes, objects, or furniture based on their cultural background. To some children, a sofa means couch, to others couch means sofa. Utilizing words that mean the same, but differ, provides an excellent foundation for vocabulary development. According to IES (What Works Clearinghouse WWC), the most important goal for literacy instruction with literacy crisis is to increase student’s ability to comprehend difficult text. It provides the teacher with a clear focus and understanding of the areas the student may be having trouble in.

According to Susan Goldman, “helping a child learn to read is one of the most exciting things educators can do”. Learning and understanding content allows the student the ability to use reading to obtain knowledge, solve problems, and make decisions. There is nothing more rewarding than a student using their words to tell you a story or express their feelings or thoughts. In today’s educational system high-quality literacy resources and effective literacy practice is imperative for building vocabulary. So, kick off this term and make this year better than the last!

China telecom giant Huawei hints US pressure hurting sales

Chinese Commerce Ministry spokesman Gao Feng told reporters at a weekly briefing that the process of drawing up the list was underway. He said no particular company or industry is being targeted. "Companies that abide by Chinese...
