Emily Hanford of APM Connecting the dots

This post will make no sense to those who have not followed my tweets on Rote memory of Dolch words and the irresponsible responses by several SSP proponents. I was talking about rote memorisation and they attacked me and said there is no place for visual memory of words.

However, the above is not what I want to talk about. Let the grown-up girls play their childish games. I want to talk about my email to Emily Hanford in 2017 and connect it to the tweet below. 

I strongly believe that these media personnel and the media itself is controlled by people with a vested interest. 

Emily Hanford cannot be as ignorant as she portrays herself to be.

Anchored In Literacy @AnchoredIn3rdGr May 27 tweeted the following:

SKILLED READERS DO NOT USE the 3 cues!!! Poor readers do! Key difference between poor and skilled is skilled readers do not need to GUESS. YOUR BRAIN processes a word faster than a picture! @ehanford

Luqman Michel Replying to @AnchoredIn3rdGr @EducateAll101 and @ehanford

"YOUR BRAIN processes a word faster than a picture!"
Yes, I have read the above statement in Dr. David Kilpatrick's book - Essentials of Assessing, Preventing, and Overcoming Reading Difficulties.

Does it explain more? Everything I’ve been taught is that your brain processes a picture much faster than text.

Luqman Michel May 28

Yes, quite a bit of scientific study to support the fact that text is recognised faster than pictures.

Emily Hanford @ehanford Replying to @AnchoredIn3rdGr @luqmanmichel and @EducateAll101

P.32 in Kilpatrick’s “Essentials” book.

Note: Emily Hanford then posted a photo of part of page 32 of Dr. David Kilpatrick’s book. This is the important part that I want to elaborate on in my next post.

Luqman Michel Replying to @ehanford @AnchoredIn3rdGr and @EducateAll101

Good, finally something to discuss. Hopefully, you won't disappear like you did when we corresponded by email in 2017.
Do look at page 30 too.

"With this level of precision, he discovered that the reaction times for reading printed words like chair or tree were faster than reaction times for naming a chair or a tree when shown a picture of those items.
This is what I referred to when answering @AnchoredIn3rdGr.

Page 30 is more relevant
Jeremy Milan posted a photo of page 30.

Emily Hanford @ehanford

Yes. Helpful to read it all.
Note: Why would Emily Hanford photo and post page 32 and not page 30? But, we will not delve into that. I will talk about my email correspondences with Emily in 2017 and connect the dots to this tweet.
Stay tuned…
