Reading has been called the gateway skill for learning. When a student is underachieving, the underlying cause is usually that the child cannot read.
It’s clear that not even the impact of TV, the computer, video games, etc. has changed the need for a child to know how to read.
As always, it was great news when I received the call from Theresa Huzel, (super!) fifth-grade teacher at Nelda Mundy Elementary School, to come talk to this year’s class. This is my third year to go there, and it’s always a very special day.
