Unraveling Reading is a response to the needs and difficulties faced by parents, students and teachers with respect to literacy and education. It presents strategies and alternatives for developing reading and writing in children, youth and adults in a practical and dynamic way. Through diverse educational lessons, activities address three different learning styles, with consideration for how the brain learns and processes information visually, auditorily and kinesthetically. Unraveling Reading also includes examples of activities to improve reading and writing skills through movement, using the Brain Gym technique.

Interview with author Daniela Silva

8 September

Welcome Daniela, Please tell us briefly about your book and what inspired you to write it? Unraveling Reading is basically about education and literacy, focusing on how to help students with difficulties in reading and writing. In this book, I discuss activities and teaching strategies that can be applied in the classroom or at home for home-schoolers. These activities respect the individual needs of the students, with regard to different learning styles such as visually, auditory or kinesthetically, depending on how the brain learns and processes information. In addition, the book presents Brain Gym exercises, a pedagogical technique that improves reading and writing skills through the movement. What inspired me to write this book was the aim to disseminate quality information about how a student can develop reading and writing skills in a dynamic way, through exercises that take into account students’ capabilities and learning styles. This is important to consider because each of us learns in a unique way, and knowing this, can help educators and instructors to develop better teaching strategies. That’s an awesome goal. How much research did you do for your book? It took 3 years. The research was based on the reading and selection of educational resources, such as academic exercises, lessons, practices, dynamics and theories that fit and takes into account multiple personalities and different styles of learning. What is that one thing you want readers to take away from your book? The process of teaching and learning is the main theme of my book. Each of us is different in experiences, knowledge and abilities, and hence the way an educator teaches and presents academic content, must be different from student to student. That´s why we have so many different learning styles and multiple personalities in a classroom. For example, a student can learn better through the movement, while another student can have a better comprehension of content when rhythms and sounds are used. It´ll depend on how your brain captures and assimilates new information. Your book is part of a series, which other books have you planned to write in this series? The idea is to expand this literature project, writing more books that are part of the educational needs of teachers and students, such as History and Science subjects. According to you, what is the most rewarding thing about being an author? Transform the world using your words. The words, when used with love, empathy, and attention can lead to hope and inspire change, and my book is a great tool for change because it has the power to penetrate people’s hearts and minds. An author must write for a cause or a purpose, and must ask himself or herself why they are writing and for whom? These are two very simple questions, but they make all the difference! Thanks Daniela for stopping by. Good luck with your writing projects! Source: https://aditichopra1.wordpress.com/2017/01/03/interview-with-author-daniela-silva/
