Hacking the Brain’s Feeling Domain: A Backdoor Route to Fast-Track Reading Skill Mastery

There is a wide gap between what we know about the brain and how we teach kids to read. Using brain science as a road map, discover how to take advantage of already primed, social-emotional “superhighways” for learning to fast-track the code-based phonics skills kids need to read and write. Uncover “backdoor” loopholes for accelerated learning that are rooted in brain plasticity, and harness the power of what’s used together becoming fused together in the brain. Hack our hardwired system for learning and take away brain-changing knowledge and “backdoor” teaching tools that will transform literacy learning in your classroom, school or district!

Katie's fast-paced and dynamic presentations spotlight brain-changing strategies for boosting existing reading curriculum and instruction with the latest neural research showing how our brains learn best. Her “backdoor-to-the-brain” approach to fast-tracking phonics skills for reading via social-emotional learning channels shifts the paradigms associated with early literacy instruction. Katie’s practical and proven methods have been the subject of numerous professional journal articles, and shared in both lecture and panel discussions at Harvard University and M.I.T.
