Computer Literacy – Content Area Reading

Description: The capacity to think inductively, to be able to understand relationships between words is a vital element necessary to understand words and to comprehend texts in content areas. This kind of thinking can be taught. In this video, as students are using computers – during their computer literacy lesson – to work on their blogs, a student encounters a new interface with, perhaps, unfamiliar words and the student must think quickly and inductively to negotiate the aforesaid interface. The student recognizes that an error has occurred; he then identifies his clicking options on the interface – clean, delete, move file to and stop; and finally, the most significant aspect of this error negotiation task, the student communicates his understanding to me by articulating in English, what he has just accomplished. Being able to read, to understand and most importantly, to communicate competently these content area vocabulary words are the outcomes I am aiming for in teaching students semantic mapping and list-group-label strategies.
