Using higher vocabulary in your speech (or listening to others with good vocabularies speak) can boost your reading comprehension a little. It's just that you won't feel the effects...

A good reader will get meaning from the sentence/ context and give meaning to the word. If the word is repeated over and over, maybe looking it up would help. The word is probably a noun.

To acheive an A or B you must maximise on most of the exercises .i.e 60 press ups (2mins), 80 sit ups (2mins). It's a 50% pass rate, but don't be fooled. The guys who attend PRMC have all been training...

    Mildred Said:What is the best strategy to get all the long reading comprehension questions right on the SAT?We Answered:The ACT is easier. That test does not penalize you for guessing, and your chances of guessing a right answer are greater for the ACT. The science section on the ACT is rather unpleasant though, and requires the test taker to know how to read charts and graphs well. Still, I'd take it over the SAT any day. Good strategies for the reading comprehension are to read with a pencil in your hand. Underline or circle the thesis, and...

    Lee Said:My son was just tested and found to have a 'Significant Reading Dissability', what are our rights?We Answered:First of all--you are wise to be autious about special ed. Contrary to what "bellajay" and others said, you can't count on special ed classes providing "intensive" instruction. Granted that is what they are supposed to do--but its rarely what happens. More likely, in most schools, those classes have become little more than day care. Also exercise EXTREME caution with regard to an IEP. These plans are intended to spell out wha tyour son needs--and put it in writing....

Yes, you can improve them (the best way to improve a verbal score is to study word roots and read as much as possible -- which, of course, helps with the reading section too), but they're already good.

Poor writers have trouble inventing and organizing their ideas. By brainstorming, you will put several topics on the board that are generated by the students. The other thing that is very helpful for these learners is to use graphic organizers that will help organize their ideas, once they have them. Just put, "writing graphic organizers" in your search engine and you will find plenty at all levels. Many LD...

Form, spelling, punctuation, capitalization have numerous problems. There is a difference between writing notes to friends and writing professional, formal materials, and perhaps that caused problems for you. In some ways, the essay would be a similar situation to writing for this site: the only way we "know" you is by your writing. The example you've shown us is very informal, and consequently comes...

The pediatrician has statistics--that is, empirical evidence--to back up his/her claim. We can only offer anecdotal evidence, which you should take with a huge grain of salt. Logically, the pediatrician has a higher chance of being right than anybody on Yahoo! does. Now, I'll tell you my anecdote. I behaved very similarly in preschool, albeit in a different country.

    Reading Comprehension For Second Grade

    Angel Said:Why Does My 7 Year Old Son Make Dumb Mistakes on Math Tests/Work?We Answered:i kinda get the sense that you set pretty high expectations from him. Could it be he's rebelling a bit? or maybe he's not as interested in math as he is in the other stuff so he doesnt put the same effort into it, or maybe he's understimulated because it isnt challenging enough for him so he rushes through it w/out focusing. i guess talk to his teachers, they know his habits and personality...

    Travis Said:is it normal to feel bitterness toward incompetent teachers one had when one was younger?We Answered:Hi Me, Yes, it is normal to feel bitterness toward former teachers, however, you should try and chalk-it-up-to-experience. Why? Because the more you dwell on it (the experience) the more you punish yourself or worse, allow them to continue to punish you. I was very encouraged reading your letter because clearly, you are focused and realize that you need to improve and learn new skills so that you may be a great teacher. My own experience mirrors your in many ways. My...

    Gloria Said:Powerscore's Logical Reasoning and Reading Comprehension as effective as Logic Games Bible?We Answered:I'm biased because I now teach LSAT for PowerScore, so you'll have to take my comments for what you think they are worth, but back when I was first prepping for the LSAT I used both the LGB and LRB (the RCB hadn't come out at that point). Speaking after having read a lot of different books on the LSAT, I don't think there's anything else out there like the Logical Reasoning Bible.

Like, Yahoo! takes points away from you every time you ask a question. Subconsciously, that makes you no longer want to ask questions at all. Yet it is through questions that people learn and make breakthroughs in things in the world. Asking questions tends to be discouraged, but that makes no sense. I really have no answer for you, but I just felt like getting that out there, :D...

    Penny Said:Need help with my son the struggling reader.?We Answered:Have you had him evaluated for dyslexia or a visual/audio processing disorder? My older son struggled exactly the way your son seems to, and he is dyslexic. Continue with the reading, but perhaps bring the level down half a grade or more. Ask questions right after you're done reading to help fix what he read in his mind. If you find he struggles immediately with the comprehension, keep bringing the level down until you know he understands what he reads. This is very important, because reading comprehension ties directly in with math...

Unless you're the kind of mathematician student that is never wrong and used to learning math on your own, then I wouldn't recommend AP Calculus. Calculus is nothing you learn in algebra/pre-calc, it can be very difficult. If your school offers AB, you should enlist for that. In BC, some schools don't even go over AB material because the expect...

    Teresa Said:Reading difficulties with a child who had slight hearing loss and sensitive nature...?We Answered:Have you thought of getting a tutor or taking her to a place like Sylvan? I tend to agree with you on this. Learning to read is all about phonics and if you cannot properly hear the sound it would make it more difficult to learn. I also think she may have just not been ready to start school that early if she is a sensitive child. I would try to approach this with complete confidence, tell her you KNOW she can do it and praise her even...

    Reading Comprehension Skills

    Caroline Said:what is the best way to help someone with their reading comprehension skills?We Answered:Okay, this is not an unusual problem, and there are things you can do. The key point you made is that it concerns subjects that she doesn't like, so her problem is not so much learning ability or comprehension in the regular sense but focus and concentration.

You will be surprised how you will just natually notice some words, and you'll...

    Reading Comprehension Tips

    Terri Said:Do you have any tips on inproving reading comprehension/?We Answered:Comprehension is great, but I've always found it to be a corralary to enthusiasm for the thing itself. In the midst of teaching him to understand teach him to love it too. What does he enjoy?

    Software For Reading Comprehension

    Gilbert Said:'PhotoReading' / Speed Reading Questions?We Answered:Is it a scam? Nanette’s Spd Rdng answer: No. The non-conscious mind takes in all the information – but you don’t know it consciously, so it doesn’t feel as if you’ve learnt anything. Also, although the info goes straight to your long-term memory, it is only activated by need (need determined by your non-conscious mind, not your conscious mind – the bit that likes to think it’s on control). It therefore works best if you do in together with some conscious (eg speed reading) techniques. Does Photoreading help with anything like comprehension or memory? Nanette’s Spd Rdng...
