This post is for parents of young children. My manager, a MIT graduate, told me about how his 5-year-old daughter learned to read. He and his wife read to her daily. Through that the child developed a natural interest in reading and wanted to learn more on her own. She visited the www.starfall.com website and was able to progress on her own. Now she can read a lot of books. It is a wonderful example on how technologies being used effectively in education.

I was told that students who read New York Times do well on SAT critical reading section. There is a nice feature on New York Times website. If you double-click on a vocabulary word, it will pop up its dictionary entry. It is very helpful for improving verbal and reading skills. It is worth a try!
