Aircraft noise hits childrens reading memory

Laurie S. Wilson has an 8-year-old daughter, who can’t stop reading letters as soon as they arrive in her mailbox.

She has a problem with letters that she can’t wait to read before they turn up at her doorstep, because if she starts reading them in the middle of the night, she can wake her older s??????ister to see if there has been some mischief.

After several years, Laurie’s brother-in-law, who works in advertising, noticed it too. So he bought a copy of the New York Times each day and taught Laurie to read letters aloud so that her daughter would get accustomed to them.

When Laurie’s sister was five, her letter carrier brought in a new batch of letters every day, and she now spends almost every Friday at 5:15 p.m. making sure she has the right number of letters. “She’ll catch up to the clock by 11 o’clock, and we’ll go shopping for clothes, make dinner, and take a shower,” says Laurie.

Samantha C. Johnson, director of communication for Public Policy Research, a liberal research organization in Seattle, says that these two methods have “the potential to enhance a child’s experience of reading.”

She says that a study of 2,500 children ages five to 15 found that those who read at least one letter weekly had increased reading skills and could read on average eight to 10 times better than those who read none.

“The research suggests that when children are exposed to reading letter after letter, rather than trying to force children to read at home, it could really benefit them by allowing them to become increasingly engaged with letters, instead of trying to force them to put down a tablet,” says Johnson.

Predictably, the controversy has stirred up a lot of concern from the community, especially with regard to the effectiveness of the program. A new studapronxy commissioned by Seattle Public Schools, conducted by KUSA-TV, concludes: “The study found no differences in reading performance betw??? ???een letters read aloud and those read at home.”

This study, along with several others, is one of many recently published that link children to letters. But the difference between these research findings and the Seattle study suggests that the message is different.

“One reason we want to promote this technology is because it’s proven to help children who are struggling with reading,” says Wilson, director of the Washington Department of Education’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes.
