Assignment Name: Kingdom of Kay Oss Simulation

Focus: Decoding, Comprehension and Motivation

This assignment involves a simulation (reading an odd text…drawing upon decoding comprehension, and motivation), reflecting, and answering questions about the experience in writing, applying course concepts/content.

Part 1:

Read the Kingdom of Kay Oss (right below) and answer the prompts.

Read this first…BEFORE looking ahead to the key/translation at the bottom! This is important! Otherwise, the assignment steps will not be worthwhile!

The Kingdom of Kay Oss

Once in the land of Serenity there ruled a king called Kay Oss. The king wanted to be liked by all his people. So one day thx bxnxvolxnt dxspot dxcidxd that no onx in thx country would bx rxsposiblx for anything. Zll of thx workxrs rxstxd from thxir dzily lzbors. “blxss Kzy Oss,” thxy xxclzimxd.

Part 2:

Consider this quote:

“Reading is a strategic act, which is another way of saying that successful readers use cognitive and metacognitve strategy so they can understand, respond to and even question and challenge the author’s ideas.”

Think about a time when you have struggled with a text: it may have been when you were young or maybe even with a more challenging graduate reading assignment. Answer the following questions on your own to help prepare you to respond to the assignment questions to follow.

Create a list of strategies you employ when you run into roadblocks to comprehension

How do they compare to some of the strategies introduced in the course?

Reflect and comment on the use of such strategies in your ownreading.

Relate some of these to what was happening when you initially tried to read the Kingdom of Kay Oss.

Reading is more than the total sum of all of the words.

Part 3:

In a Word document, include the questions below and respond in APA style paragraphs.

What prior knowledge did you call upon to make sense of the passage?

To what extent did your knowledge of stories influence your understanding and reduce the uncertainty of the task?

How often did you rely on your knowledge of:

Letter-sound associations?

Spelling patterns?

Relationships of words to each other?

Contextual meaning?

Did you risk being wrong in your attempt to derive meaning? That is, did you use context clues to guess unfamiliar words or just skip them?

Did you maintain sufficient speed when reading the selection to overcome the limitations of visual processing and short-term memory?
