Daniel Willingham is publishing a series of short videos on literacy this week, and his first one is titled “Writing Is A Recent Technology.”

In it, he talks about a number of things, including the brain and reading and writing. I was particularly struck by what he says about the role of listening on learning to read.

I’ve previously shared other research by Dan.

I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Showing Students That They Make Their Brain Stronger By Learning.
