From the beginning of the Children of the Code Project, the premise has been that if educators and parents understand the challenges involved in learning to read, they are much better equipped to help their students.
Teaching the Teachers
Based on this premise, their 4-disc series is designed to support educators who can be involved in teaching other educators, literacy volunteers, policy makers and members of the general public. The content involves “what’s at stake,” and “what’s involved” in learning to read.
This series is not a “how to teach reading” course.
It’s a collection of video segments and animations designed to help professional adults and parents develop a deeper first-person understanding of the issues involved.
