This paper discusses how the assigned articles confront problems associated with teaching children with reading problems and present possible solutions. It shows how Susan Tancock offers a single framework for struggling readers she feels can yield better results by focusing on the children's individual needs and interests. On the other hand, Anne Duffy-Hester examines the overall situation concerning teachers and struggling children focusing on prevalent problem areas in the field while offering several reading programs she feels are most successful when dealing with students who have reading difficulties.
From the Paper:"The Tancock article seems to be the most helpful as it provides teachers and tutors with tools that could be applied right away. She addresses the problems that struggling readers face and then offers a solution that can be adopted and put to use fairly easily. Tancock begins the article by pointing out that in some cases, the instructions struggling students receive may revolve around the accuracy in "identifying sounds, letters, and words rather than the construction of reading" (Tancock 130). Another problem she addresses is the fact that some teachers often interrupt a student's reading rather than encourage them to "monitor their own reading" (Tancock 130)."
