2-3-page essay about the theories and their implications.
Read about Cueing Systems, Automaticity, Schema Theory and Transactional Theory. Do the theories make sense to you? What would you do to teach a child to read? Define the theory and describe it in terms of its basic assumptions. State whether you agree with it (in part or in whole). Why or why not?
Explain the practical implications of the theory in terms of how it would influence the kinds of activities or strategies one might use in the classroom.
Provide an introductory and concluding paragraph for the paper.
