NO MORE TEDIOUS ABSTRACT READING INSTRUCTION!
Learning to Read is as simple as 1-2-3:
1) Click on any word.
2) Try to read word in Pop-up. Can’t? Click word in Pop-up.
3) Repeat step 2 as needed.
A 3 year old can learn the App in 3-5 minutes and it’s all that is needed to learn to read.
25+ New live examples from PreK to Adult. https://lnkd.in/gNZS_Gb
The PQ App provides autonomous learning-to-read guidance and support which safely and differentially stretches the learner’s mind into learning to decode. Instead of teaching phonics rules and spelling patterns to be later applied (hopefully) to the decoding of unfamiliar words, the PQ App interactively guides students through the process of working out unfamiliar words and it teaches them the rules and patterns in the process.
The PQ App is FREE to public schools, non-profit organizations, and families.
Learning to read on the living edge of now…
Human children learn best on the living edge of now. Nature wires us that way.
Can you imagine trying to help a toddler learn to walk by giving them verbal ‘how to’ instructions when they are sitting? Can you imagine trying to teach kids to learn to ride a bicycle without using a bicycle – by trying to teach them through the use of abstract exercises rather than a guiding hand during the real-time live act of trying to ride the bicycle?
All prevailing models of reading instruction share a similar absurdity. They all involve methods of instruction that are abstractly removed from the live act of reading they intend to improve. They are all designed to train learner’s brains to perform unconsciously automatic code-processing operations that will later, when engaged in actual reading, result in fluent word recognition.
We have turned the process completely upside-down and inside-out. In a few minutes even 3 year olds can learn 3 simple steps that will enable them to learn to read without any ‘offline’ instruction.
See for yourself. In 3 minutes you will get it: https://www.learningstewards.org/mldemo/prek-3/
Louisville, KY- October 2, 2017 - Learning Stewards, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on improving education, has developed a new technology-based method for learning to read that meets children of poverty at the level of their reading-readiness — and stewards them up a personalized stairway to reading proficiency.
