THE SECRET OF SAY AND SPELL
By Richard McManus
I am now sharing a secret that has had an immense impact on many of our students.
I feel this exercise is so important that I am going to share it with this column, and thereby give it to anyone who reads it. Some years ago I had a student who was struggling with reading — he was an 8th grader who was reading at 5th grade level -- and reading very slowly. We taught him decoding skills quickly, and his ability to read challenging materials improved rapidly.
