Purpose of Reading
In teaching to read, we must not lose sight of its purpose, which is not self-serving but is a means to an end, being the comprehension and application of (key) knowledge. Furthermore, ability to read does not necessitate ability to comprehend or apply. word confusions

High Reading Skills don’t Equal Comprehension Skills

While a person might be able to read a manual or text fluently, he may not know what any or parts of it mean. Comprehension skills do not require reading skills; if we showed a video of how to build something to an illiterate person, there is a good chance he will be able to build it.

The Resource

Many children struggle with comprehension; one method in primary schools deployed is having illustrated stories that tell much of the story through its images. Children can guess the content. The struggle becomes evident when we remove the pictures from the stories.

Education-Tech’s learning program utilizes a unique multi-sensory-cognitive process by engaging children through combining imagery and activities to build their comprehension skills explicitly. Our resource is most definitely inclusive of all learning types which are in the main auditory, visual and kinaesthetics.
