When people think of myths they usually think of the Greek or the roman but there are many more cultures with myths but they usually all relate to the same things. Myths are the traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of a culture (NA“ Myths”). One of the most popular myths is the Greek story of Hercules the strongest mortal alive. Did you know that the native American tribe Blackfoot used myths too? Yes, they did many native American tribes used myths too ,but they are more likely to be called a fable or a folktale.

The Simple View of Reading (SVoR) model suggests that children must have language comprehension and word recognition skills to be proficient readers, Medwell et al (2014). Jim Rose’s report (2006, p. 40) outlined the Simple View of Reading as a useful framework, which would make explicit to teachers what they need to teach about word recognition and language comprehension (see appendix 1). Before the Rose report, reading was defined as decoding black marks, Graham and Kelly (2012). After this the searchlights model suggested that phonics, grammatical knowledge, reading comprehension and graphic knowledge are equally useful tools when learning to read, Ward (2008). The Rose report’s Independent Review of the Teaching of Early reading reconstructed this model and created the SVoR. Rose (2006, p. 38) determines word recognition as a process which allows you to use “phonics to recognise words” and language comprehension as the means by which “word information, sentences and discourse are interpreted.” The SVoR suggests that, to become a fluent reader, the skills of language comprehension and word recognition are equally important and dependent on each other. Gough and Tummer first mentioned this model, as stated that “comprehension is not sufficient, for decoding is also necessary” Wyse et al (2013, p.
There is a fine line between a myth and a folktale. A myth uses elements of triumph, tragedy, honor, bravery, and foolishness, while a folktale is more similar to stories told by locals, which are handed down from generation to generation. No matter what type of story, it was very important. In fact, they were so important that some of the more famous myths and folktales are still known today, such as Fire the story of how fire came to man. Most of the stories known today are entertaining, timeless, and good moral lessons, as we do not need the same survival teachings the Natives needed.

Reading: Locates, understands, and interprets written information in prose and documents--including manuals, graphs, and schedules--to perform tasks; learns from text by determining the main idea or essential message; identifies relevant details, facts and specifications; infers or locates the meaning of unknown or technical vocabulary; and judges the accuracy, appropriateness, style, and plausibility of reports, proposals, or theories of other writers.( 134 USDOL)
To start off, myths are stories that have been passed throughout many centuries, and are very popular in the world. A myth is a traditional story explaining some natural or social phenomenon usually involving supernatural beings or events. These legends can go from being almost identical to varying so much from each other. Although stories "Bladur" and "The Spirit Bride" seem awfully alike, there are many contrasting things.
A myth is a story explaining a natural event typically involving supernatural beings or events. One type of myth is a creation myth, a creation myth is a fanciful story explaining how the world began and how the first people came to live here. Two examples of creation myths include
An important variable in a student’s reading ability is their knowledge and use of various reading strategies such as inferring, questioning and evaluating (Paris, Wasik, & Turner, 1991). Initially Dana should work specifically on monitoring/clarifying while she reads, she seems to understand when something doesn’t make sense and she should be taught how to fix her reading when it doesn’t such as backing up to re-read, cross checking and checking for
Fairy tales is the term also used to describe something adored with unusual happiness, like “fairy tale ending” a happing ending or “fairy tale romance”, though not all fairy tale as a happy ending. A fairy tales is a type of short story that consistently features European folkloric fantasy characters, such as dwarves, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, mermaids, trolls, or witches, and usually magic or enchantments.

Fairy Tale." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 11 June 2014. Web. 13 Nov. 2014. According to Arthur Schlesinger, classical tales “tells children what they unconsciously know-that human nature is not innately good, that conflict is real, that life is harsh before it is happy-and thereby reassure them about their own fears and their own sense of self” (229). Fairy tales, according to the British illustrator Arthur Rackman have become “part of our everyday thought and expression, and help to shape our lives” (229). Fairy tales are mostly used in any story that is not only true, but could not possibly be true. Maria Tatar the author of numerous articles on fairy tales and also ten scholarly books wrote that “fairy tales are up close and personal, telling us about the quest of romance and riches, for power and privilege, and, and most important, for a way
Everyone has heard the story of Hansel and Gretel, the brave siblings who just barely escaped from an evil witch’s grasp. Disney fairytales, like Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, are also favorites among children. Many have heard the story of the Tortoise and the Hare, the fable that teaches that it is better to take your time than rush through something. Fairytales and fables alike all fall under one category; folktales. Kids grow up surrounded by folktales, and they do not even know it.
Effective comprehension of the reader and writer will occur if both authors and readers use similar interpretive methods and belong to the same discourse community. Scholars state that good readers use complex processes interactively and simultaneously in order to enhance comprehension (Stanovich, 1991). This interaction among processes is very influential in teaching reading skills for ESP. In other words, successful readers activate their schemata of the topic and use textual information to make sense of the new information (Stanovich, 1991; Jalififar & Shooshtari, 2011).
