Red Flags for Primary Teachers, Katie Johnson’s Book about Children’s Vision Issues and How They Affect Learning, Wins in The Hollywood Book Festival Contest
Date:7/20/2014

(PRWEB) July 20, 2014

Red Flags for Primary Teachers tells stories of ordinary children in ordinary classrooms who puzzle their teachers because there is no obvious reason why they are having trouble with reading. After forty years of teaching children how to read and write in classrooms from Maine to Washington, Katie Johnson has seen many such puzzling children.

Why can’t some of them learn to read?

Katie believes that many children are having trouble learning to read and liking to read because they have problems with their vision – not their eyesight – or problems with their neurological development. Red Flags presents such children, all students Katie has worked with during her long career in teaching first graders.

The book is organized in three parts: What I See, What I Do, and What I Have Learned. Each child is presented in a story, a short vignette of classroom life described in an informal retelling of what the child does that Katie notices and is concerned about – that is, a Red Flag. In the What I Do section, Katie gives ideas for activities and exercises which may help the children, and recommendations for professional intervention when needed. For example, when a teacher notices a child covering one eye with her hand as she reads, this should set off an alarm bell in her head that the child may not be using both eyes. Many teachers have never learned about these problems.

"There are about 25-30 percent of children in the primary grades in American schools today who have some problem with their vision. We need to work on this,” Johnson says. “It is a national disgrace.”
