    Dr. Louisa Moats: Teachers

    Teachers have the difficult tasks of not only teaching a child how to read, but also determining how to help them if they are struggling. Dr. Louisa Moats gives examples of how teachers can be better prepared to enter the classroom and identify potential reading difficulties in their students. For instance, she discusses the importance of not only teaching children the alphabet, but also showing them how to associate sounds with letters. She also shares an inspirational story about one teacher who came to her distraught because his students were moving onto the next grade level without being able to read. After learning some effective methods for teaching children to read, he is now passing students with flying colors.
