New documentary about reading by Emily Hanford!


“For decades, schools have taught children the strategies of struggling readers, using a theory about reading that cognitive scientists have repeatedly debunked. And many teachers and parents don’t know there’s anything wrong with it.”.
– Emily Hanford

Emily Hanford’s new documentary, At a Loss for Words, explores the disconnect between the science of reading and the current approach to literacy instruction used widely across North America. In this follow up to her award-winning documentary Hard Words Emily explores the three-cueing system and its effect on literacy outcomes.
