Exploring Differing Assumptions in Reading Science – Emotions and Reading

Dr. Andrew Johnson is a Reading Specialist and a Distinguished Faculty Scholar and Professor of Literacy at Minnesota State University.  I, David Boulton, am a Learning Activist with Learning Stewards. Dr. Johnson and I have very different views about reading and the process of learning to read. We agreed to learn together and respectfully challenge each other as we identify and explore the assumptions that underlie our differences.

In this our 3rd conversation we explore a number of reading related topics and assumptions, including those listed below. As you are listening, if something piques your interest, look below for links to further learning resources.

Thank you, Dr. Johnson!
Thank you (now reading this)!

Errata – at one point in the conversation I used the word nanoseconds. I was being figurative. The processing at issue is in the milliseconds range.
