    Leveraging the Power of Video to Build Literacy in Any Language

    Years ago I visited a city school that clearly celebrated the diversity of their population with lots of materials in English and Spanish. But, I observed some children who were not participating in the stories and songs. The teachers told me those children spoke Arabic or Urdu or Korean – and they didn’t have any resources for those languages. Can we really afford to overlook any child?

    Is Math Talk a Missing Key to Literacy?

    There is a problem with our country’s response to illiteracy but it’s not what you think.  Countless programs and politicians have rallied to eradicate the illiteracy rate in our country but very few have taken up the cause of illiteracy’s stepsister – innumeracy.  A recent study by Geary, Hoard, Nugent and Bailey showed that 1 in 5 adults are “innumerate”. In other words, 20% of the American work force does not possess basic math skills and, as a result, is not prepared for today’s modern jobs.
