Ciaran is a Team Esteem certified SEIT. He works with elementary-aged children and specializes in reading.
We had a chance to sit down with Ciaran and learn more about how he uses reading as a way to connect with students and improve esteem.
How do you use the “Art of Reading” to help children in their day to day lives?
I use friendly literature to increase comprehension, academic success, and self-esteem that will carry over to all subjects. The students I work with love interacting with both the stories and discussions we have afterwards. Not only does literature help children academically, socially, and emotionally, but it promotes the love of reading. Many times the children read ahead themselves to find out how the story ends. I am amazed to hear how much the children remember from stories we read and discussed months prior.
What type of stories do you read with the children?
Our stories range from informative, entertaining, realistic fiction, historical, and fantasy.
What literary elements do you go over?
Cause and Effect
Fact vs. Opinion
Relating Personal Experiences
