Language Arts 12: Carson and Kwik Readings Course II
Why Carson and Kwik Reading Course II?
One such course is NOT enough! 🙂
Dr. Ben Carson, world renowned pediatric brain surgeon, and Mr. Jim Kwik, world renowned learning coach, both had hard luck beginnings. One was born in poverty, but had a mother who was inspired to have him read, read, read. This resulted in him changing from the dumbest kid in his grade to being regarded as the smartest. The other started out ok, but hit his head on a radiator in kindergarten and suffered from brain challenges. He experienced further injury later. He was fortunate enough to have a the father of a friend act as his mentor and direct him to read, read, read.
Both men succeeded because each learned to learn by READING. They learned more than their peers by reading. And, most important of all, they literally expanded their brains and the capacity of their brains, their ability to hold and recall information because of their habit of reading.
Our final courses in Language Arts, our Capstone Courses are named in their honor, and in gratitude for their example.
