The Learning Curve

Roger Boswarva & Virginia Koenig

The Learning Curve – What Are the Mind Processes You Can Help Your Child With So They Read Easily and Well?

Today’s guest with Roger & Virginia on The Learning Curve is Jeffrey Pflaum, the author of Motivating Teen and Preteen Readers: How Teachers and Parents and Teachers Can Lead the Way.

Jeffrey is a 34 year veteran of teaching in the New York City School System where he achieved spectacular results in the classroom. He and his work have been widely cited in publications dealing with education and is featured on the Education Resource Information Center at Teachers’ College, Columbia University and at the Collaborative for the Advancement of Social and Emotional Learning, Illinois University.

Hear Jeffrey revel how reading is all about “an internal life” and that there is a “reading process” that you can help your children learn.

Hear how Jeffrey taught his students that words can excite and incite young readers to create three-dimensional concepts and images; and that reading is like a 3D virtual reality created by the reader.

Jeffrey’s book is available at your local bookstore, and B&N.
