Useful And Fantastic: Literacy Videos
Val Yule prepared these short cartoon literacy videos to assist failing learners who were not helped by conventional methods.
This Australian innovation is unique as far as I know.
It presents a simple over-view of the English writing system and helps in the understanding of reading and spelling.
I found that so many failing learners had nothing wrong with them except confusion and gaps in understanding. The aim is to prevent and clear up these confusions. It shows how the written language is linked with the spoken language. It demonstrates HOW TO learn, helping you understand spelling and a quick way to learn to read.
