"What You Need To Know To Survive The Future"


Reading: What You Need To Know

     In today’s world, reading is the most important part of learning, and I mean we have to learn it. It is not something we pick up like speaking. The ability to read and read rapidly is what makes or breaks a student in

the school system of today. Everything else hinges on this one ability. It is the weakest link in the learning chain. That is what makes it the most important, because it affects all other aspects of learning.

     If the child is lagging behind in reading skills, then they will get left behind. That is it. There are no ‘buts’, ‘ands’ or ‘ifs’. That’s about the truth of it. If the kid can’t read, that’s it. They slowly and steadily fall behind until they are so far behind they cannot catch up. Then Learned Hopelessness takes over and the kids just give up.

     In most cases the children can improve their reading skills, but it takes time and effort. You have to put in the time to get results.

     To get ahead in life, in love, or what ever you call it you have to be able to read. And your children have to be taught how to read.

     Anthropologist surmised that speaking evolved as a survival mechanism. Mankind somehow managed to take speaking to another level as compared to the other animals that inhabit this planet. Most animals can call their young, whether cubs or pups or whatever, and the offspring come running. Some can call some kind of warning. But that is where it stops.

     We, mankind, have somehow managed to get above this, and we carried on talking to inform our offspring about the dangers of life in the cave.

     Reading is completely different, we have to learn it. Or more correctly we have to be taught it. It is not something we just pick up like speaking. We have to be taught what the letters all mean. And that is where us parents come in, or us teachers as the case may be.
