The Logic of English
Take 56 minutes to watch this from beginning to end. Don’t put it off untill tomorrow. Do it today. Denise Eide, the speaker, has done something marvellous. She has uncovered the logic of the English language.
For me, this represents the way forward with my daughter. It brings together the two often contrasted methods of phonic and whole word reading in a humanistic way that will help both my daughter and myself (I’m a bad spella). You can visit Denise’s blog here. You will note the textbooks and iPad apps. Expect more on those later. For now I will settle with buying the book.
I will leave you with one quotation from the video: “You can do as tutors, as parents, what brain surgeons cannot. You can re-wire the brain”
