Uncovering the Logic of English: A Common Sense Solution to America’s Literacy Crisis
Do you believe that English spelling is illogical and riddled with exceptions? This myth frustrates both students and teachers alike and has contributed to our society’s widespread struggle with reading and spelling. It doesn’t need to be this way! Rather than wrestling with countless exceptions, we can master 104 tools that logically explain 98% of English words. We will learn:
- Why does C say two sounds in accent?
- Why is there a silent final E in have and give?
- Why do we drop the silent final E in servicing
but not in serviceable?
By revealing secrets of the complex code of English, we will discover a systematic phonics which moves beyond cat and dog and experience how the Logic of English has the potential to reverse the literacy crisis. Together we can make this knowledge as common as 1+1=2 and provide all people with a solid foundation in reading.
