Demystifying Dyslexia - Free Video Resource
Mel Levine speaks about the importance of demystifying learning differences with our students. Without a better understanding of their learning style, many students see themselves as "dumb" or "stupid" when they face repeated disappointment in their own school performance. Demystification is a process that takes the mystery out of deficient mastery at school.
Here is an online video from Brain Pop that may help your students with "dyslexia" better understand their learning disability. It's a tool to add to our "Demystification Toolbox."
(I put dyslexia in quotes because it means different things to different people. It's important for kids to understand that all people learn differently and have different strengths and abilities.)
