How can teachers help students develop the literacy skills that are necessary for learning and retaining information in any subject? Traditional memory tricks, mnemonic devices, graphic organizers, and role playing do little to turn bored or reluctant students into enthusiastic learners. In A Teacher's Guide to Multisensory Learning:ÿImproving Literacy by Engaging the Senses, Lawrence Baines shows teachers how to engage students through hands-on, visual, auditory, and olfactory stimuli and link the activities to relevant academic objectives. Throughout the book, you'll find real classroom examples of how teachers use multisensory learning techniques to help students interact with material more intensely and retain what they learn for longer periods of time. Baines provides a wide variety of engaging lesson plans to keep students motivated, such as *Paint-Write--encourages students to use spontaneous painting to interpret their thoughts *Soundtrack of Your Life--allows students to use contemporary music to learn about narrative writing *Candy Freak--helps students expand their descriptive vocabularies (as they eat their favorite treats!) *Red Carpet Conversations--empowers students to create dialogue and act out scenarios about their favorite celebrities Seventeen additional lessons plans are complemented with practical assessments and strategies for engaging students' sense of play. For teachers who are ready to energize their classrooms, this book is an invaluable resource for expanding students' capacity to learn and helping them cultivate essential skills that will last a lifetime.

The Hickey Multisensory Language Course has become a classic. It is widely used throughout the UK by teachers working with dyslexic learners of all ages, and is a core text for university courses directed at specialist teachers. Moreover, it has exerted a powerful influence on approaches to teaching literacy skills, including the National Literacy Strategy Framework for teaching. Children now have an entitlement to access to the National Curriculum. Special educational needs, including dyslexia, must be identified, assessed, and addressed, mostly within an inclusive mainstream classroom. Special programmes such as the Hickey are implemented as part of an Individual Education Plan, and need to be linked to the Literacy Hour. The Third edition makes explicit links with current classroom organisation and gives examples of appropriate IEPs, and suggestions for use of ICT. To address the need for specific training in phonological awareness, the Hickey Lesson Plan has been modified, and a chapter added which includes specific games and activities to develop phonological awareness, and to develop the use of strategies in reading a range of whole texts.
