Example text

Acommon example of this is a child’s spelling error corrected by the teacherbut still repeated by the child in subsequent rewritings. ’ Examples and discussion of KWFL grids will be found in Chapter 7. 11 Concept map: reading beyond the lines Using ‘concrete manipulatives’ ‘Concrete manipulatives’ is an American term used to cover a range of ‘hands on‘experiences such as going on trips, using models, handling artefacts, as well as using a range of materials other than books such as videos, computer programmes, or audio tapes.

Because of such problems with existing models of the learning with text process, we felt we needed to reconceptualise this process. The EXIT model represents the state of our thinking at this point. THE EXIT MODEL In presenting the model we are immediately faced with the difficulty of representing a complex and essentially recursive set of processes in the twodimensional space defined by print on paper. Although in what follows the model will be represented as a series of numerical stages, it is important to realise that this is for convenience only.

Deriving concept maps from initial brainstorms can also give teachers the chance to introduce more technical vocabulary. For example, the concept grouping ‘where they live’ which was suggested by the children as they worked on their tiger brainstorm was written down as ‘habitat’ by the teacher and she explained the meaning of this word as she wrote it. Not only was the group’s vocabulary enhanced but they were also given access to the more technical vocabulary they were likely to find in the index, headings and text of information books about tigers.
