Nurturing Emergent Readers

幼童閱讀潛能的培育

Evelyn Yee-Fun MAN & Cherry LING TSE(文綺芬、謝凌潔貞)

Abstract

Students’ reading interest and habit are best nurtured when small and preferably before they reach six or seven years old. Children have the potential to become independent and competent readers — appropriate support from parents and teachers would help realise this potential. In this article, relevant theories linking learning and reading will be discussed, as well as practical approaches arising from a reflection on such theories. Since there is no one-size-fits-all formula, this paper will explore a flexible combination of strategies, especially from the perspectives of parents and teachers. A number of practical strategies based on relevant personal experiences of a parent and common elements of good practices would also be examined.

摘要

培養學生的閱讀興趣和習慣適宜在幼年時便開始,最好是在六、七歲以前。如父母和師長懂得恰當的引導,每個孩子皆可成長為有能力獨立閱讀的人。本文探討有關學習與閱讀的理論,以及從理論引申而來的實踐途徑。正如世上沒有一服即妥的萬靈丹,本文要探討的,是不同策略的靈活搭配,特別是從家長與教師的角度取材。這包括一位家長源於親身體驗而設計的一些實用策略,還有是一般良好做法的共通元素。
