Nardagani Has a Solution
With just 12 simple symbols, a challenged reader learns every sound of each letter. The guesswork in reading is eliminated. Words go from being confusing to being fascinating.
The Nardagani Reading Program is a blended learning system, part human instruction and part interactive computer component. Research shows that a student has a 70% higher success rate when taught by a real-life instructor. An instructor can be a parent, a friend, a tutor. In fact, anybody can easily learn to teach this program.
The Nardagani Reading Program comes in a kit. Everything an instructor needs to teach a student of any age to read is in the kit, including: an interactive software program that takes you through the process of how to teach Nardagani, which is about a two-hour training; an instruction booklet for quick referencing; games and exercises to help students learn the 12 symbols; and 12 coded practice books for students to build confidence in reading. The symbols are like training wheels; once the student has confidence in reading, he/she will no longer need them. Once students have read all the coded practice books, they are guided to our suggested reading list of non-coded books. These are books from the library or bookstore. They begin with entertaining low level books and progress to higher level books. This secures student’s ability to read without the symbols
We completed building the digital part of this program at the end of 2017. We are testing this digital part by teaching 100 students. We anticipate this testing phase will be complete by mid-March. We plan to have the Nardagani Reading Program ready to sell by the beginning of May.
Also, we are building a four-hour Nardagani Tutor Bootcamp. Once it is complete, anybody will be able to take our course. When you graduate from our bootcamp, you will be a highly trained Nardagani tutor. We will provide all the marketing, everything from videos for social media to flyers to post at local coffee shops, all with the goal of coaxing out the challenged readers into the capable hands of our tutors. In the bootcamp, we will teach you everything you will need to know to easily and successfully teach students of all ages to read.
