Monday January 11, 2016 Ksmit202@emich.edu Assumptions we give children We as adults make children become what we assume and we tend to limit them to what we material we share. I believe that it also lowers their esteem about reading. Some false assumptions: Children have short attention spans o We can gain the attention of children if we find their interest. o Example... Young boys might not be as interested in princess books as they would if they were reading about cars, dragons, fight...etc... o Children enjoy books that they can relate to: stories about typical childhood experiences. Children books should have easy vocabulary words o I would say that it depends on the age of the child. o Us as adults underestimate the ability of children to comprehend. A four year old might understand a word like development or something. Children like books with talking animals and cute illustrations o This is a false assumption because what if the child has a literal mind state? They’re might not be interested in a talking horse. o Not saying that all children won’t be interested, but there might be a few uninterested. Children books should protect children’s natural innocence o Children being protected from the worldly things might cause problems in the future. o Why hide children from things they are going to learn eventually? If they don’t read about it in early ages, then they might become ignorant to certain situations and might not know how to act in a situation. Conclusion Every child is an individual and a human being. Things are based on our views instead of the Childs and it limits their growth. Feel free to ask more questions in my email...
