For some time I have been thinking of this august occasion and of its topic, Teaching Reading: The Science and the Art. And at a recent convention while listening to a brilliant monologist and teacher, I there wished that I could have changed the title of my speech to "Look, look. Come, come. See Charlotte's Web." I think that title brings the concepts of teaching reading as a science and an art to the realities of classrooms, some very human teachers, and some little children who may very well need to appreciate and recognize the simplicity of "look, look" before they can enjoy the beauty and charm of Charlotte's Web.
