Ep. 69 The Power of Making Learning Fun, Enjoyable and Life Changing with Lois Letchford Pt.1
Schools have a standard way of teaching children; however, making learning fun will also help students retain information better because the process is enjoyable and memorable.

Lois took it upon herself to teach him through poetry and hands-on experiences, emphasizing the importance of connecting learning to real-life situations and context for better comprehension. She reflects on the power of making students feel valued and remembers how she underestimated the impact of a poem about a witch's spell. Lois emphasizes that children remember how they feel and the connection they have with their teachers. She also touches on the importance of creating a safe and relaxed environment for learning, as well as the role of the brain and nervous system in education.

About Lois Letchford
For the past twenty years, Lois Letchford has been a literacy problem solver.
Specializing in teaching children who struggle with learning to read, her creative teaching methods vary depending on the reading ability of the student, employing age-appropriate, rather than reading-age-appropriate, material.

Lois is a literacy spokesperson for struggling learners who have failed behind in the traditional classroom. Through coaching and workshops at international conferences, TV appearances, and highly-rated radio stations, she uses her own story in Reversed: A Memoir to teach educators and parents how to create flexible learning environments using comprehensive and innovative teaching methods.
Originally a physical education teacher, she later completed a Master's in Literacy and Reading from the State University of New York at Albany. Lois has presented her work at SPELD in Australia, the Kentucky Council for Exceptional Children, the Spring Festival of Children's Literature in Maryland, and Ireland International Conference on Education.
