"What are we all about?" you wonder. We are about making learning to read fun for everyone--native English speakers, foreign speakers, the very young, the not-so-young, fast learners as well as not-so-fast learners, and by no means least, children with reading disabilities like dyslexia. Moreover, we are about helping future scholars become fully actualized, that is, to reach their full potential, becoming Independent, critical thinkers.
We fancy our website as being right for all aspiring students who wish to become Totally Literate. We think Totally Literate is perfect for any child no matter whether he or she be in a highchair or a rocking chair. You may wonder about this too. The answer is twofold. First. stories, which is the mainstay of our program, are easy to decode (i.e., to read without comprehension), whereas the stories are beyond the ken of most students to comprehend fully. In fact, even parents and teachers will need a second read to grasp the humor. Second, toddlers, still in diapers, are not expected to acquire a vocabulary approaching that of a college professor…not right off that is, and foreign-speaking educated adults aren't expected to spend much time learning nursery rhymes and singing along to lullabies.
Because all our products are fun to use, particularly our inherently humorous rhyming stories, Totally Literate appeals to all ages, even parents and teachers. They should enjoy them every bit as much as, if not more than, their charges do.
Being that Totally Literate is a philanthropic organization, we are happy to make our program free to every educational institution who seeks membership. The membership granted to it is Rhodium, which permits access to our entire website.
As time goes by, God be willing, we will offer more products, especially classic stories. Also, we are considering developing other educational programs, such as civics and logic. Both subjects, once requisites in practically every school curriculum a half-century ago, are today not even offered as electives. Everyone with a functioning brain, except the movers and shakers of society, hellbent on controlling us, should agree that these two subjects are sorely needed today. Consider this question, if you please, could our country and the world in general possibly have gotten half so chaotic were these two subjects still taught today?
Every week or so, you can expect another word or two from us about our website or educational and social issues.
We bid you a warm welcome to Totally Literate, and hope this missive marks the beginning of a long relationship. Until then, Happy Learning!
