Let's Celebrate National Spelling Bee Week and the Spelling Brain!

Thursday, May 28, 2015 2:10:28 PM America/Los_Angeles

This week marks the 88th edition of the Scripps National Spelling Bee, with the championship final to be held in Maryland, tonight, May 28th. The goal of the high profile spelling bee is educational, not only to encourage children to perfect the art of spelling, but also to enlarge their vocabularies and widen their knowledge of the English language. To recognise Spelling Bee Week, at JL headquarters we want to focus our thoughts on spelling, and how our brain learns to spell. What’s going on inside the brains of those spelling bee champions? We’ve previously talked about the reading brain, and the speaking brain, but we realized it was timely to finally talk about the very important spelling brain too!

Teaching the Speaking Brain in the Digital Age

Thursday, March 5, 2015 4:40:00 PM America/Los_Angeles

Late last year, we ran a special blog series on teaching the reading brain. Much interest was generated from this and we thought it was timely to follow on with a series on teaching the speaking brain.
