Week 5Discussion 1 Prior to beginning this discussion please read â€œLanguage and Literacy in Educational Settingsâ€ (pp. 169-178), â€œNeuroscience of Readingâ€ (pp. 179-184), â€œLearning to Readâ€ (pp. 185-191), and â€œReading Comprehension: Reading for Learningâ€ (pg. 192-197) in your required text. Based on your resources this week, choose three areas of language and reading acquisition that you found most interesting and that were unknown to you prior to this week. Explain the theoretical perspectives of each of these chosen areas. Apply skeptical inquiry to a brief discussion about why language acquisition is an important area for scholars and educators to understand when developing learning opportunities. Apply the concept of language and reading acquisition to your own academic success. Has your own language development affected your success as a student? As an employee? How? Based on the resources and your current knowledge, do you believe you could develop areas personally that would be beneficial to you, your loved ones, or your friends? Your initial post should be 450 to 600 words in length and thoroughly discuss each of the elements in the prompt. Week five Discusson 2 Prior to beginning this discussion, please read â€œWriting, Earlyâ€ (pp. 212-219) and â€œWriting, Advancedâ€ (pp. 220-226) in your required text as well as â€œUsing Blogs to Improve Students’ Summary Writing Abilitiesâ€ and â€œAn Adjective Is a Word Hanging Down From a Noun: Learning to Write and Students With Learning Disabilitiesâ€ in your required articles. Based on your resources this week, explain the theoretical perspectives of early versus late writing development. Apply skeptical inquiry to a brief discussion about why language acquisition is an important component of learning how to write. Apply the concept of writing acquisition to your own academic success. Has your own development for language and for writing affected your success? How? Based on the evidence suggested in â€œAn Adjective Is a Word Hanging Down From a Noun: Learning to Write and Students With Learning Disabilities,â€ only 25% of students can be classified as proficient writers (Harris & Graham, 2013). Apply ethical principles and professional standards of learning and cognition psychology to this complex and growing concern by playing the role of the expert. What suggestions do you have, based on empirical evidence and theory, for increasing the competency of writers in this country? As a scholar, how important is it to encourage competent writing in others? What strategies could you employ to improve your own writing? Your initial post should be 450 to 600 words in length and thoroughly discuss each of the elements in the prompt. Week five Journal Prior to beginning this journal entry, read â€œFirst Language Acquisitionâ€ (pp. 198-204) and â€œSecond Language Learningâ€ (pp. 205-211) in your required text, as well as the required article, â€œUnderstanding Reading Anxiety: New Insights from Neuroscience.â€ It is important for you to have already completed your initial discussion posts before you complete this journal entry. Part 1: As you were reading this week, what vocabulary was used that was unfamiliar to you or might be to your peers? Identify three to five words from this weekâ€™s content and research each word in the context of learning and cognition. Explain, in your own words, what each word means and how it is used in the context of learning and cognition. Part 2: Based on the weekâ€™s discourse and content, you will access the Ashford University Library and research one scholarly article pertaining to â€œreading comprehension and second languageâ€ published within the last ten years. Provide a summary explanation of the findings in the context of your article. What implications should scholars consider based on this information? Support your explanation utilizing your course sources and your researched article. Part 3: Consider the events from the past week of your life. How does the ability to read and write effectively affect our behaviors, actions, and knowledge development? Describe one personal real-life example of an occurrence that indicates the possible consequences when reading and writing acquisition are not well-developed or when language development creates boundaries, such as educational or employment opportunities. As you share this information, consider and apply the professional standards found in â€œ12.06 Anonymity of Sourcesâ€found in the AERA Code of Ethics
