From their work with young beginning readers, various researchers have drawn conclusions that we might reasonably assume will apply to adult learners who have had few experiences with print and the conventions of printed texts. These conclusions include the following:44

  • Books are put together according to a set of conventions that can be understood without being able to read.45
  • Knowing the conventions of print aids the learner in the process of learning to read.46
  • Learners need to know the mechanics of print in order to be readers.47
  • Concepts about print knowledge may facilitate subsequent reading-related skills.48

Learners who come from an oral tradition and who have not grown up with print around them may need to be taught some or all of these concepts explicitly (see ‘Knowing what to do’).

Running Shoe Fit Tips
Foot size: Shoe lasts (which determine shoe sizes) vary by manufacturer and even from one shoe model to another. http://www.lightupshoe.sale. You may need a half-size or even a full size smaller or larger than you think. If you're unsure, have your feet measured. http://www.nikeyeah.com. Try on shoes at the end of the day. Your feet normally swell a bit during the day's activities and will be at their largest then. This helps you avoid buying www.mkpee.com shoes that are too small. http://www.nikeshoesales.com. Aim for a thumbnail's length of extra space in the toebox. The width should be snug but allow a bit of room for your foot to move without rubbing. Laces should be snug but not tight. Barefoot shoes are an exception: Heel and toes should “fit like a glove”without any extra http://www.shoesmaxs.com space in the toes.
