This kit is designed to start a conversation with your child's teacher, principal or your PTA about literacy education. The kit aims to discover if their child is truly engaged and learning the subject matter.

We want both parents and teachers to be aware of not only what is happening in the classroom but why it is happening.

This kit complements Educational Solutions’ "Re-inventing Literacy Education using Words in Color" white paper [also available on Slideshare.net]

Re-inventing Literacy Education Conversation Starter Kit

  1. 1. The Re-inventing Literacy Education Conversation Starter Kit •  Take the following questions with you to your next meeting with your child’s teacher or principal. •  Get other parents involved by sharing these questions and the “Re-inventing Literacy Education using Words in Color” white paper with them. •  Have a conversation about the kind of education you want your children to have, and the kind of learners you want them to be. www.EducationalSolutions.com
  2. 2. Education for the Future How will you prepare your child for an evolving future? • A future where many of the jobs have not yet come into existence. • A future where the value and usefulness of today's facts declines over time. • A future where the technology of today will not address the problems of tomorrow. How do you configure the education of today to better prepare your child to meet the future with confidence? We are proposing the kind education that enables our children to become aware of, and connected to, their own capabilities and natural capacities. Detach the following page and bring it with you to your next meeting with your child’s teacher, principal, or PTA. www.EducationalSolutions.com
  3. 3. Key Questions 1.  Could you please describe your teaching approach? 2.  How do you know if a child has truly learned something? 3.  How do you make use of the students’ natural learning capacities? 4.  How do the materials you use enhance the natural learning processes? 5.  How does your teaching approach address the two types of ambiguities of written English? (Individual sounds have multiple spellings, and individual spellings produce multiple sounds.) 6.  Do your materials and teaching techniques focus on the memorization of multiple spellings, or on the processes for combining sounds and spellings? www.EducationalSolutions.com
  4. 4. Where do I go from here? •  For more information on how to get the most out of your child’s literacy education, visit www.EducationalSolutions.com. •  Download the “Re-inventing Literacy Education using Words in Color” white paper. www.EducationalSolutions.com
