This has been my favorite and most meaningful part of study so far. I loved the "pepper" video and learned so much. The young man was an excellent tutor and tutor trainer as well! I am going to try some of these techniques tomorrow with one of my students.

Thank you so much for posting this article. I've taught elementary and secondary but never adult readers. Our school is expanding to include up to twenty two year olds. I'm happy to read that the strategies we do with our readers applies to all ages.

Thanks again,
Maddie
