Understanding Dyslexia through the Eyes of Hank Zipzer
Pilgrim, Jodi
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v2 n2 p98-105 Win 2014
New Texas literacy laws mandate continuing education requirements for educators who teach dyslexic students. Close to twenty percent of the US population display one or more symptoms of dyslexia (Washburn, Joshi, & Binks-Cantrell, 2011), and teachers must be equipped to adapt instruction to meet these students' needs. The purpose of this article is to promote an understanding of dyslexia through the eyes of Hank Zipzer, a character in a popular children's book series. Hank's experiences provide insight into the thoughts and actions of a character struggling with reading, writing, and spelling.
