I used a yellow overlay with a young man in 5th grade and it improved his reading despite our unbelief in its use.
I use speak-it myself – Richard Mayer’s book refers to generative cognitive processing leads to deeper processing – something I really needed in my studies.

I like all of the shows. I really wanted to see what is on the show notes for this podcast. I’m feeling like this is a lot of hoop jumping for show notes…

Vicki Davis May 2, 2017 - 10:58 am

Hoop jumping? They should just be scrolled down on the screen. I do have a transcript as well but I am constantly watching stats to rework and make things simpler. If you find anything confusions or have suggestions email me at Vicki at coolcatteacher dot com to let me know what you mean. Thanks!
