Thanks for visiting High-Tech-Old-School
Reading Specialist, Donna Lynne Hambright, here with some FACTS & STATS about reading education. Did you know...
- Test anxiety is one of the most serious problems affecting our struggling readers?
By teaching our students how to identify learning and teaching styles, we are serving the psychological, social and emotional needs of our struggling pupils with tools they need to develop deeper self-awareness, i.e., self-identification of strengths (and weaknesses) and self-evaluation of a job well done. Do not forget the practicalities of team building skills, time management skills, forecasting skills, research and data collecting skills, planning and organization skills, and the ever-necessary, test-taking skills.
High-Tech-Old-School is focused on providing students, parents and educators with research-based information on the identification and intellectual development of students in grades K-14+ (kindergarten through early college) who need intervention in reading and language arts by providing examples of strategies and lessons, which can alter the way students feel about test-taking..
