Believe this.

When a woman like this leaves our mortal coil,
we owe it to her not to grieve,
not to weep or be sad.

We owe it to her to rise.
To all be a little bit more like her..

To be louder, braver,
so that the girls born today have new heroines to look up to.

That’s what she would want.

RIP Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Retention will not teach a child to read. Although retaining kids in hopes that "maturity" will cause them to learn to read, write, and spell has been discredited for decades, this news doesn't seem to have reached many people who work in schools. 06/06/2017

This reading crisis is having a lasting impact on our communities and our national economy. You can be a part of the solution. Join TeamQuest…Until Everyone Can Read!


Read Right

Classroom teachers typically have to deal with students who fairly consistently display oppositional behavior--often because they can't read well enough to participate in the life of the classroom. The following article from Mind/Shift has what seems like good advice for de-escalating interactions with these students! Teachers, take note! 05/03/2017

I’m starting a new #Dyslexia411 awareness campaign based on some of the incorrect info many parents have heard at schools about dyslexia – whether in IEP meetings, at conferences, 504 meetings or in casual conversation. Know the facts and don’t accept misinformation. Armed with the facts, parents can better advocate for their children. - Kristine

Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity

Education Talk Radio host Larry Jacobs interviewed Sally Shaywitz, M.D., co-director of the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity and author of Overcoming Dyslexia, about the importance of early identification and intervention for young people with dyslexia. It starts with screening children for dyslexia in schools in kindergarten and first grade. Shaywitz, along with Center Co-Director Bennett Shaywitz, M.D., developed a quick, evidence-based screening tool that identifies students who are at risk for dyslexia. The duo teamed up with Pearson to distribute Shaywitz DyslexiaScreen™ to educators.
