Paying Parents to Read to Their Children Boosts Literacy Skills

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Researchers have found a surprising way to help boost the skills of children with language impairment: Pay their parents to read to them.  A new study tested four techniques to get parents or other caregivers to complete a 15-week literacy intervention for their children with language impairment.  Only one of those techniques – paying parents 50 cents for each reading session – led to children showing significant gains in reading test scores, findings showed.  “We were somewhat stunned to find that paying parents had this strong effect. We didn’t anticipate this,” said Laura Justice, lead author of the study and professor of educational psychology at The Ohio State University.  The other three techniques tried in the study were offering positive feedback to the parents, offering encouragement, and modeling to parents how to read in a way that improved children’s literacy skills.  None of these three was helpful, and offering feedback actually had a slight…

The second literary work of Gianfrancesco Iacono is a fun and fast-paced slice of life youth set in Paris but it could be any other city in the world.The story, while showing some youthful exuberance is a highly enjoyable read - ranges from the wacky characters that accompany the narrator in historical- philosophical quotes , which show an excellent level of general culture ( in the good sense of the term) of the writer.RÊVE DANS LE BLEU is the dream misunderstood youth , research unconditional " la vie de boheme " so dear to Jacques Brel and Leo Ferre - soaked with subtle humor and spontaneously without the pursuit of sound bite and that invites you to smile as well as reflection.

Everything flows . Everything flows and , most likely, everything flows vain things of the world flow in vain because they are temporary and never the same twice. Yet , since everything runs in vain , nothing flows in vain. The blue changes and changes, but always remains blue

The metaphor of life may be represented by a color , it is what it suggests Francesco Iacono - The ` blue as the dominant color , which accompanies and permeates our dreams and our reality that sometimes
interchange is one the role of that other and giving us slices of lives miserable  at times but full of human wisdom.

Cursed philosophy! I never got rid of it . Damn ! Blame the Four Books . Do not you have ever read. Maybe I never woke up in Paris. Why I woke up right there ? Maybe because I liked the feel of watercolors printed on the volume of Universal History It was in love . All dark and obscure, there may not be made ​​if the dreamer passed since a collector of citrus. Of course I was wrong, but at any rate I  woke up in Paris. I know Qinqin , Bertrand , I know Aurore and the kiss between her and letsomething of my legs , something that I join her in an intimate way . Even Amandine it does, but I do not want to imagine the way. Maybe because I'm too picky because of the books read. In the four books there are hints in this regard , that is, to leave something of your own in between the legs of women , especially French . 

The dream of the southern boy broke into the reality of a mythical city that welcomes and disenchanted in the blue of his metaphorical " ruelle " in blue whiteness of youth and dreams who wants to remain intact at the cost of distorting the reality that resembles a joke of Coluche .

RÊVE DANS LA RUE BLEUE is one of the most interesting books I've read in recent times , you feel the creative freshness , originality ` , culture , irony and the impetus evocative.If you are not in search of the famous name,the personage advertised or trivial literature of which we are invaded , keep an eye on this name.
