Additional Information

Reading comes easily to some students, but many struggle with some part of this complex process that requires many areas of the brain to operate together through an intricate network of neurons.

As a classroom teacher who has also worked as a neurologist, Judy Willis offers a unique perspective on how to help students not only learn the mechanics of reading and comprehension, but also develop a love of reading. She shows the importance of establishing a nonthreatening environment and provides teaching strategies that truly engage students and help them
--Build phonemic awareness
--Manipulate patterns to improve reading skills
--Improve reading fluency
--Combat the stress and anxiety that can inhibit reading fluency
--Increase vocabulary
--Overcome reading difficulties that can interfere with comprehension

By enriching your understanding of how the brain processes language, emotion, and other stimuli, this book will change the way you understand and teach reading skills--and help all your students become successful readers.

Willis' book, I think, is designed for K-12 (maybe K-6) teachers; however, it was tremendously helpful in an era when 80% of students are placing into developmental reading and writing. I love Willis' style; she is very good at explaining complex neurological concepts for a layperson. She also has "gray matter" sections that go into greater detail of the actual 'neurology' of the subject.

Even though many of her techniques were clearly designed for younger students, I was able to modify them and use them successfully with my college students. I also have a much better idea... Read more
Anything by Dr. Willis is wonderfully educational. Fellow teachers also love her books: They're filled with practical ideas, backed by complete wisdom and practice! She's great!
