The result of all these unnecessary (or destructive) techniques is to make children unable to read or unable to derive pleasure from reading. A lot of teenage boys say, “I hate reading. I don’t like books.” Probably the truth in most cases is, they don’t actually know how to read, or they know how to read in a clumsy way, one guessed Sight-word at a time. They were never taught to read correctly, and that’s where they stay. Many people suffer a lifelong agony as a result.
