More on Learning from Neuroscientists-Children of the Code

In my previous post on our need to listen and learn from neuroscientists, I failed to provide the link I was after on some of Paula Tallal’s writings and lectures.  Dive into this link (scroll down) and you will find a trove of good material. For teachers engaged in Reading, and Writing with students (and we should all be) Dr. Tallal’s work helps to bring alive some of the teachings of more traditional Literacy experts.  In other respects, the work of Tallal corrects some fallacies about traditional teaching of Reading and Writing.

See what you think.  Link is as follows:

  1. Hello Dr. Wise,

    We met when I gave a keynote address to a gathering of Duval County School educators a few years back. Thank you for referring your blog followers to our interview with Dr. Tallal.

    I’d like to invite you into a dialogue with the focus of ‘redefining the mission of education’. Let me know if you’re interested and we can arrange a conversation.

    Thanks for all you do. – David Boulton
