Quotes About 7 Commandments In Animal Farm

Quotes About Guessing

"Stanislas Dehaenes work. In brief, the adolescent reader abruptly jumps from working out individual sentences and words to second-guessing; skipping laborious neural links formerly used to make prose intelligible means that brain is now free to make connections with personal experience, rather than just attempting to make sense of marks on a page or screen. Crudely put, this means that once a critical level of experience has been reached, the reader uses both hemispheres to do two or three different things with the text. He or she "inhabits" a book rather than just piecing the sentences together word-by-word." - Author: Tat Wood
