Most Pre-K/K students can focus on a given lesson or exercise for about five minutes at a time — i.e. learning to read (I’m talking about in school right now, not necessarily at home). So … let’s say I told you (cue infomercial host voice) that there was a program in the world which would allow young kids to focus on learning reading for 20-25 minutes at a time. Would you believe me? Probably not, right? Well, thank God for this podcast, then … because now we have some proof.

It’s called Letters Alive, and here we’re talking to Cynthia Kaye, one of the pioneers behind it.

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
