Teaching and assessing reading

Sweet evening dears

I have to submit a paper on teaching and assessing reading and I need participants to answer the below questions, so could you kindly help me

  1. How we read depends on what we read. Explain with examples!



  2. Is the reading comprehension related to intelligence rather than language knowledge? Explain your answer!


  1. What is the difference between reading and reading aloud? How does reading aloud differ from reading silently, in terms of reading process and strategies used?



  2. Externalizing the reading process through reading aloud may distort the reading process. Explain!


  1. What affects the difficulty or easiness of assessment of reading?


  2. Which types of questions/tasks do you prefer to uses to assess the reading skill of your students? And why.


  3. Provide examples of questions that you would use to assess the skimming and scanning reading skills
