Teaching reading in high school is all about reading comprehension

     By the time most children get to high school they should be able to read so you have to concentrate on teaching reading comprehension. There will be a few kids who have fallen through the cracks and you might have to spend some time with these students. The best way if you can

do it, is a buddy system. This way you pair up a good reader with a struggling reader and hopefully the magic happens, but not always. Some kids just don’t want to learn. 

If some children are behind in reading and they want to learn, bring out the Montessori sandpaper letters with phonics and see if they make a difference. 

     If the children’s parents are responsive to suggestion and don’t complain about spending money to help their children ask them to look at an online phonics program.  

To Homeschooling Parents And Parents of Children who are having Problems Learning to Read

Have A look At Three Free Videos About How to Teach Your Child To Read 

     Video 1: Introduction To Montessori Reading.

 Video 2: How To Make Sandpaper Letters.

     All high school students should have a dictionary and know how to use it. This will save you time so make sure the students get into the habit of looking up the words they do not understand. This will help the student’s reading in the content areas also. 

To improve the reading ability of high school students the students must read

     As they say practice makes perfect. As a teacher I have noticed that the students who read in their spare time in class are usually the better students. If most students just got a lot more practice in reading they would be better readers, it’s as simple as that. But there are a lot of distractions in today’s world and there are better things to do, like playing computer games and watching TV.   

     For more information about phonics courses I recommend including a Montessori course see our Teach Reading page.
