Let’s Get Ready To Teach!
Ok, so here we go . . . we’re about to dive into the world of learning how to teach reading using research-based best practices. I’ll be completely honest here and say that this is really fun and interesting stuff to me. While I fully understand that I have a rather dorky passion for this subject, I also realize that you may not. Keeping this in mind, I will attempt to make everything as easy to understand as possible so that you may take this information and apply it without getting too confused. We also have videos demoing certain lessons and podcasts that address some of the topics covered here for you to use as additional resources.
Please realize that it took me a while to learn, apply, reflect upon, and relearn all of this. In fact, I’m still learning new things about teaching reading to this day! So don’t expect to know all of this stuff right away. Take your time learning and applying these techniques because your child won’t be reading overnight! And remember that we’re always available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have in our forums.
