teaching literacy.

Ask me anything   Submit   ever since i was a little girl, words have danced through my head and in my heart.

"I just follow the rule I tell all my students: if you can’t explain it to an eighth grader in a way that he/she would understand it, then you don’t understand it. As a corollary, one must understand the importance of narrative. Our brains have evolved to care about story. If you want to penetrate the brain of a listener, wrap the information in things they care about."
