The Hornet is a literacy primer. It deals with the fundamental structures and conventions which operate within our language. It was developed with students whose literacy problems were exacerbated by their inability to process regular vowel sounds.
It is a one-to-oe teaching manual that can be used on the kitchen table or school desk.
Its main function is to develop a linguistic framework for all students; allowing them to uderstand that our language moves from left to right and that order and structure rule over language. It is not the mystery that whole word systems make it appear.
It can be used by anyone. Other than the manual, all you need is a pencil, an exercise book and scrap paper!
