From Speaking to Spelling

BY HELEN BREADMORE
@ VOL 22 ON SEP 15, 2015

“You need to sing nursery rhymes, play I spy, make up stories and read books together; What children know about their spoken language affects how quickly they learn to read or write”

In From Speaking to Spelling from PechaKucha Night Coventry’s 22nd Volume, Researcher Helen Breadmore speaks of the interconnectedness between spoken and written language. In young children, because the learning process typically undergoes a particular pattern, one can learn a lot from the pattern of their mistakes.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, February 1, 2016.

At 40, something I realized that a series of brief "diversity immersion experiences" defined not only what I do but who I am. Encounters since childhood that have been centered around self-awareness, difference, bias, value and mindset determine the narrative we create surrounding every aspect of our life. I share my journey and expound on how it led me to my current career. My name is Lisa and I AM A DIVERSITY TRAINER.
