|What is the status quo in reading education?
According to the Department of Education:
2 out of 3 children fail to become proficient readers!
It's shocking, but true!
||How can so many students have problems? Until now educators relied on phonics to teach reading. But fewer than 1 in 5 words can be "sounded out" and there are 1,768 ways to spell 40 sounds. Consider the sentence above where “ea” can be pronounced 13 different ways!
||Why is Reading Kingdom successful? It uses Dr. Marion Blank's patented "6-SIM" Six Skill Integrated Method that teaches all the reading and writing skills in an integrated fashion so that they complement and reinforce each other while fostering comprehension at every level.
