Teaching reading for meaning
“Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master.”
Leonardo da Vinci
The Reading School Philosophy
"Empathy is the child's platform for compassionate knowling, or what Martha Nussbaum called the ‘compassionate imagination'. The enduring legacy of childhood's stories may begin with the simple magic woven by them, but the understanding of 'others' imparted by them will stretch across the lifespan and, if we are all very fortunate, influence how the next generation treats its fellow inhabitants on our shared planet.''
