By Robin Schwarz Spoken language is noise which the experienced listener sorts into meaningful chunks. A child spends many years perfecting this sorting. In a similar way, a learner of a new language must sort out the unfamiliar sounds into pieces that make sense: phrases or sentences, words, syllables and even phonemes (the smallest sound segments). Reading experts have known for years that difficulty with the sorting process, or phonological skills, is directly connected to the reading and spelling problems of many students. More recently, researchers studying native English-speaking students who were having trouble learning a foreign language found that these students have problems similar to those of poor readers and spellers in that they do not perceive and manipulate the sound system and its corresponding written code effectively.

Education Reform – Explain it to Me Like I’m a Fifth Grader « Relentless Teaching This whole approach to education reform for the 21st century…yeah, I need someone to explain it to me like I’m a fifth-grader. I’ve been reading the recently published work of a few respected educators; experts such as Tony Wagner (The Global Achievement Gap), Diane Ravitch (The Death and Life of the American School System), and Yong Zhao (Catching Up or Leading the Way). Their thoughts about the knowledge and skills students must develop to be contributing citizens in the 21st century are intriguing.
The recessionary pressures that have forced school leaders to make painful program and personnel cuts may also have accelerated the quest for savings through innovation—and enhanced the allure of educational technology as a vehicle. Online curricula, distance learning, netbooks and cellphones in the classroom, and Web 2.0 tools—think Facebook and Skype—as a means of student collaboration have all gained luster as the drive to do more with less overlaps with the demands of educating a generation of digital natives.
