IEF 2018: Read To Lead

Reading Time: 1 minute

At the Innovation in Education 2018 fair, I made a short presentation on the benefits of reading to children. Noticing that the participants in the audience where taking notes, I told then that they don’t need to, that I would publish at least the most important bits for their benefit. My presentation was one of three different presentation on literacy.

And, here they are.

I shared how I read to my little nephew and how I even volunteered to read aloud to his class, and did, once.
