  1. I have trouble with spelling and reading. I know I’m behind my peers but don’t know by how much. Surprisingly, I’m a junior in college with all A’s and do really good in English, communication, and creative writing. All with the help of spell check technology and I spend a lot of time searching up worlds and how to say them. What would be an appropriate next step for me to take. I want to become a master of spelling and reading. Sometimes I get caught up on easy words and my spelling is pretty poor. If I’ve never seen the word before chances are I will struggle with it. Any advice on an appropriate way to move forward will be appreciated. Thank you!

  2. You mentioned that no English word end in V. What about gave? Written the same as have but pronounced differently.

  3. great content,one issue,your talking pace is a little to fast,and i believe if to fast it inhibits learning,Jason from mathtutordvd
    will help,he's on point.

  4. Great topic. I am a Speech-Language Pathologist and the information on cursive writing is something I will implement on my clients with acquired dylexias (which are the majority of patients and clients I see). We have aphasia workbooks with cursive writing for my clients to do but I never was told the "why" of doing cursive writing vs script. Thank you for an excellent video!!

  5. This is an amazing video with so much encouragement, inspiration and information. I'm so glad I took the time to watch it. Thank you for doing this.

  6. I just watched a guided reading lesson given by a teacher to 3 students on YouTube, and when one student wildly guessed at the word and substituted a completely out of context word, the teacher just pointed out that the substitute made no sense in that context, and isn't there a word that would work better? she never assessed if he had the skill to sound the actual word out – no wonder we can't read!

  7. If you use a picture for the sound the letter is making there should not be any confusion. plus some learners are visual learners and need to make the connection using visuals.

  8. It's so funny because I chose Alpha-phonics (before I knew logic of english existed) for many of the reasons. – I didn't want to have pictures with the sounds -I wanted to teach phonetic awareness, not sight words etc My daughter is a very good reader. She dislikes reading but is actually good at it. Her favorite books are chapter books so once she gets to an independent level I think that will change. She calls readers "baby books" haha

  9. Enjoyed the information very much but you talk too fast and need to give us time to digest what you're saying. I had to listen piecemeal to better get the whole program. Wonderful information, however!

  10. How is Logic of English different from The Writing Road to Reading. I understand both are based off the Spalding method. Memoria Press did a critique about the Writing Road to Reading. It sounded like they did not like the program itself but it was not very clear if their problem was with the Spalding method itself. What do you think about Writing Road to Reading?
