Instead of a written blog post today, here's a 15 minute YouTube video my wonderful sister Cath produced for me (thanks Cath!) about:
- What the proper, scientific research tells us is the very best way to get children reading,
- Why so few teachers and schools are currently properly equipped to teach chidren reading this way (not their fault, in my view),
- What we might do to help change this for the better, to ensure that we get all children reading, and that illiteracy and poor literacy is prevented wherever possible.
Since I am a little short on video actors, I've pressed my clinic toys into service in the video, so its other title is "Toys explain the Literacy Research". I hope you like it, and that it is useful to those of you who are in a position to help get children reading.
