"We've kids on the honor roll now that have NEVER been on the list. Thanks to your wonderful creation."
Kids Succeeding Against The Odds. That's Why I Created Jazzles ELA!
The quote above is from a teacher in a small mining town in West Virginia. About 90% of the kids are from single-parent homes. Approximately 97% are African-American. The average household income of the mothers is less than $22,000 per year and, although rural, it is an area with a big drug problem. Like so many towns, the big challenge is teaching children in public schools with racially homogenous, high-poverty populations or mixed ability classes with rich kid, poor kid intakes.
Jazzles ELA is designed to overcome the challenges of these socio-economic environments, with a particular focus on the crucial first semester and reading as the epicentre of a child's future success or failure.
In my experience, if children don't experience some 'beginning to read' success in these never to be repeated few months, they are likely to lose confidence, fall behind and, as research predicts, risk never catching up.
It's all unnecessary
In this video, I show you how I've used all my talents, skills and the knowledge of 20 years teaching experience, to create Jazzles ELA.
Independently assessed as meeting/exceeding Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten ELA.
Jazzles is the world's largest, transformative, song-powered multimedia, multimodal Beginning Reading/Literacy Development program.
It is a systematic, sequential Visual-Auditory-Kinesthetic-Tactile ELA program that achieves extraordinary levels of intellectual and emotionally engaged learning. When 40% of a mixed-ability Missouri kindergarten (half on free lunch) with no prior reading level, achieve year end-literacy in the first semester, you've got to take it seriously!
Two independent theses prove it.
Watch the video to see the how and why.
No child bored! Jazzles delivers because a teacher designed it and children love it.
Ask Yourself this Question
What Pedagogy Other Than Jazzles Focuses on Engagement?
"In the recently published international PISA study (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development [OECD], 2007), the single criterion that distinguished between nations with the highest and lowest levels of student achievement was the degree to which students were engaged in their studies. This finding took into account demographic factors such as ethnicity and the socioeconomic differences among the groups studied."
