[click for bigger] Stuart Buck's TCS education column
today got me thinking about how I "learned" to read. I emailed Stuart and he posted what I sent him
over at his site, so you can read it there.
The image depicts the alphabet I had to work with for nearly three years.
One thing I didn't mention to Stuart was the lingering effect the ITA way of learning had on me; to this day, I have problems with my handwriting because I still try to connect certain letters together.
Imagine a classroom where this little story
would get you an A+.
I have never come across another person - including those in the education field - who has heard of ITA. I was part of some small, isolated experiment that presumably failed, because it vanished from our school as soon as we left the program and "graduated" to the normal way of reading.
Yes, I wuz speshil.
