Simple reading-Simply the best

Human beings are symbolic creatures. We are able to build tools and transfer and accumulate our knowledge to next generation because of language and our cognitive ability to decode layers upon layers symbolic abstractions. Everything that is unique about human beings has something to do with language.

I now suspect that Memorization and Retrieval based learning pedagogies are the enemies of real cognitive development. They try premature maximization without providing for adequate reading ability and affordances for kids.
