...University of Phoenix Material Reading Comprehension Worksheet Respond to the following in 50 to 100 words each: 1. Describe your outcome from this week’s MyFoundationsLab® assignment. I received a master’s score on this weeks “MyFoundationsLab”. I found the material helpful and insightful because it taught me ways to become a better student by improving my study scores. I mostly enjoyed the video parts of it because I feel like I learn the most from them and they are not as boring as always reading the information. 2. Identify the skills you’ve learned this week. How could each of these apply to your academic work? How could each of these apply to your professional work? The skills that I learned from this week that I can apply to both my academic work and professional work are taking notes as I read important material, and how to understand and remember information. Taking good notes will help me in my academics because it will help me put the main points in my reading material in my own words while creating a short version of a study guide for myself. This also helps in a work setting because if I learn something new I can take short hand notes to help me remember all the important aspects of the job. Along with writing the notes I also have to make myself understand the information and retain it. This is the most important skill for me because I often forget things shortly after learning it. When I improve this skill I will be able to recall more......

...different techniques and studying skills a student may possess or learn to adapt to. As a visual spatial learner, I have noticed that when I map my notes for papers this technique is easier for me. Letting my thought process flow and combining all my thoughts together later. Should I have to study for a test or quiz, I would use flash cards using the outline method. The listening skill is most important technique to me as a student, a leader of Soldiers. With these three roles I am always trying to improve my listening skills. As I read the article the Importance of Listening the author suggested writing down notes to recall information given to you earlier. As a Leader of Soldiers also supervising my own shop there is always new information and Soldiers having issues. There are times where I will be in a zone with so many things going on at once and decisions being made very quickly. When being spoken to I will zone out and listen for key words and ask questions in between to react accordingly. If I do not hear anything of importance then I will ask the person to repeat themselves and then listen to what they have to say and go from there. When it comes to Soldiers listening is critical you have to listen to Soldiers issues and problems. I have learned to be an active listener by asking certain questions in between conversation to get the full scope of the issue so I can better understand and assist them.

The French term,” language” also refers to a specific from of speech .Hence, in the whole process of language teaching, spoken language occupies an important place. Ballard says,” talking comes before writing, oral composition before written composition.(Dash, 2004, p.165-166) Speaking is the productive skill in the oral mode. It, like the other skills, is more complicated than it seems at first and involves more than just pronouncing words Josh Billings says“Silence is one of the hardest arguments to refute”. Learning English as one's second language is not unusual in most places of the world. But learning English as one's second language and mastering it thoroughly is a distinguished achievement. By mastering, I mean that one is able to read, write and communicate unambiguously and effectively. In this case, only a few has accomplished due to many problems such as unavailability of native-English instructors in a country, a totally different language structure used at home and a limited amount of time studying English. The main reason why theFilipinos are employed abroad is their ability to speak and understand Englishand so when all countries in the world struggle to learn English (Rama 2000) We ,Filipinosshould not unlearn it.

Technology's Effect on Reading Skills

...Technology’s Effect on Reading Skills Things are much different from the generation in which I grew up technology-wise. We had few television shows for kids other than Saturday morning cartoons. Computers, even the PCs at home, were used for accounting programs or very early e-mail. There were very few games for kids and it took those forever for them to load. There were not many game systems and none of them were portable. We also did not have the cell phones that are available now with internet access. We did not even have internet. Things have come a long way since then. Today’s kids have access to cell phones, iPods, tablets, laptops, and a lot more options available to them. Modern technology has had both a positive and a negative impact on the current generation's ability to improve their reading skills. Kids growing up in 2015 are growing up in a different world. Life has a much faster pace in this era of technology. People can get things on demand and immediately. Kids in school have a harder time paying attention for long periods of time. This makes sitting still and paying attention to a teacher’s lecture difficult. It also makes getting past a possible slow part of a book or passage tough. Most of their electronics come with many different options and if they don’t like whatever is on they can change it. This makes teaching students what is needed for them to pass the standardized test very difficult. Another issue students have is lowered comprehension.......

I disagree with this statement.  Children can learn something from comic books. So, as long as children don’t spend too much time reading comic books, comic books could be good for them. I think reading books is good for children, but some children don’t like reading books. However, some of these children like reading comic books. It would be difficult for children who are not accustomed to reading texts to start reading books. But, once they come to like reading comic books, it would be a bit easier for them to start reading books. I mean, comic books could help children start reading un-comic books.

Reading Between the Text Message Lines: How a Culture Becomes Dependent on Electronic Communication and Changes Language Skills Forever.

...David G. Fisher Professor Hallawell English 249 (Linguistics) 25 October 2011 Reading between the text message lines: How a culture becomes dependent on electronic communication and changes language skills forever. They are everywhere, in schoolyards, high school halls, businesses and even our own homes and they are having an effect on our culture at this very minute. You may even be reading this on one right now. They are cell phones and more and more they are being used for more than just talking; they are being used to send e-mail, text, and instant messages. What originally started out as a way to have more communication in case of emergencies and to have a way for teenagers and adults to stay connected to what is going on in each other’s lives has become a barrier to language abilities. (Bauerlein) In the immediacy of our consumer society we have become too reliant upon instant information and it has affected our way of communicating. A cell phone is now a device that can keep us continually linked to the internet, e-mail and text messages. The price for this convenience is that we have lost the ability to communicate effectively face to face or in writing, thusly loosing parts of our literacy level in this country. When the miracle of cell phones first came into popular use, most people were not that interested in the text message mostly because there was an extra charge associated with using the feature. After more time and as the phone plans began to...

...Extensive Reading: Why? and How? Timothy Bell timothy [at] hsc.kuniv.edu.kw Kuwait University ------------------------------------------------- Abstract An extensive reading program was established for elementary level language learners at the British Council Language Center in Sanaa, Yemen. Research evidence for the use of such programs in EFL/ESL contexts is presented, emphasizing the benefits of this type of input for students' English language learning and skills development.

Questionnaires were used to examine students' reading interests, habits and attitudes, both prior to, and following the program.
