This method of teaching cuts through the confusion of all the teaching details that did not help them and took them straight to the core of the learning that resulted in their being able to read, spell, and write. It is not the method that is incredible, but the capacity of the child’s brain to learn beautifully when we give it what it needs.
Testing can be a stressful time for both parent and child! The good news is that even if your child doesn’t perform as well as you had hoped, there is good reason to be optimistic! What we need to do is be prepared and be ready to carry out a good plan of action should test scores be less than stellar.
The reality is that we are teaching our right-brained population in a severely left-brained manner, and when they fail, we break learning down into an even more left-brained fashion. What results is a totally unnecessary tragedy for each of those learners.
