Just in case anyone missed my 'grumpy old man' pieces, or my heroic efforts to extract a smile from Ada Trellis, the reason I have been semi-absent is that I have been exceeding busy, preparing a revolutionary literacy program to present to a large western Sydney primary school.
I am confident (based on observation of results so far) that this program has the potential to dramatically improve literacy 'across the board'. It suits all learning styles but is particularly effective with 'right brain' kids and 'problem children', and aren't they all!
The submission includes the rationale, special reading resources, the methodology and detailed lesson plans. The program is intensive, efficient, dynamic, easy to manage, inclusive and above all, fun. (even for the teacher).
If you want to know more, you know where to find me.
