Using Psychological Strategies To Help Your Child Read More.
Malouff, John; Schutte, Nicola
Noting that maturation, biological reading potential, and a number of parenting strategies can help young children become eager, competent readers, this paper lists the strategies two parents used to facilitate their daughter's reading competence. Thirty strategies are listed, each one accompanied by the appropriate learning principle. Included among the strategies are: encouraging the child to read to a younger sibling (prompting), and telling the child that the parents spend much of their work days reading (symbolic modeling). The paper also includes child-to-child suggestions for increasing reading and a question-and-answer section about increasing a child's reading. (KB)
