I did not know how to teach reading and spelling and now I do!
I wish it could have been taught on my teacher training course.
The ‘code’ is so obvious that you wonder how we have managed to lose sight of it. It is the essence of the teaching of reading. Discovering it provides the ‘missing information’ that we’ve neglected to teach. Hurrah- we’ve now got the whole picture!
This is what I have been searching for -for years! A logical, structured way of teaching the reading and spelling of this complex language of ours, that works for everybody regardless of age. It just makes sense. I knew there was a way of doing it but I wasn’t clever enough to work it out for myself!
This is the most worthwhile course I have ever been on.
I did not know how to teach reading and spelling. Now I do. I would love to have had this knowledge when training to be a teacher.
This programme will radically alter my teaching of reading and spelling
It has always seemed to me to be hit and miss in the past. I have found it very difficult to help the children and now I can.
This system will provide the material for the initial teaching in our school, beginning in September 09. Children further up the school will be taught at the appropriate level. Flawed readers and writers will have targeted interventions put in place.
This programme has been extremely eyae opening and inspiring. It has made complete sense to me and given me the confidence to go away and start making a difference whenever I can. The code has definitely made the English spelling system, despite all its complexity and years of confusing people, accessible and more ‘transparent’. We have covered a lot in five days but the structure and attention to detail of the course has been fantastic. I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and can’t wait to put it to use. Thank you.
I feel part of a special club! I feel confident in my ability to help those in my class who require help with their reading as I feel I will be able to understand why they are making certain errors and resolve them. This training has made the concept of the teaching of reading completely understandable and I feel I will be able to execute my knowledge. Thank you for demystifying something which has previously appeared baffling.
It has revolutionised my own understanding of spelling and how it works.
