- Reading Cueing Systems
- Three Cueing Systems model suggests that when a child is reading running text and comes upon a word that is difficult to read, the child should first try to guess what the word is based upon the context (including pictures, if there are any). Secondly, the child should try to guess what the word is based upon syntax (is it a verb, a noun, etc...). Finally, if the other two cueing systems fail to provide an appropriate word, child should focus on letters of the word and try to "sound it out."
