BRAINSAREFUN FEARLESS FRIDAY BLOG – Bright Futures With Reading, Math and Study-Skills – Friday July 4, 2014

DOES YOUR KID REALLY NEED TO KNOW HOW TO READ TO BE EDUCATED

A parent asks, "Don't they get it all from video these days?" 

 

RORY'S REPLY

No, they don't – these days they get it 360 degrees around (spherical actually). Adults get it 360 too, but we start to "tune out" just as our kids are really tuning in. They get it from all directions.

I have been challenged by parents and teachers who think I put too much of an emphasis on "reading and math" at the exclusion of other subjects. Please understand, reading and math are not "subjects" like History or Geography. They are "skills." We came here to teach 11 skills. Let's get to it.

Thanks for all you do to teach kids to succeed with reading, math and study-skills.
