about

The EPILLAW Paradigm is a practical method for developing writing skills. It consists of an original nine-level taxonomy and sequential methodology of listening, speaking, writing and reading. In this method, the development of writing precedes the development of reading. The work consists of two books. In the introductory book, the author explicates the first six levels. The behaviors involved in EPILLAW train the student how to think consecutively and logically. The first three levels establish the concrete assimilation of knowledge; the middle three elevate the students' cognitive ability from the concrete to the abstract cognition of knowledge. Through charting, the students learn the EPILLAW essencing modality that enables them to think abstractly. Lastly, having achieved the skill of abstraction, the student can personalize ideas and, from there, develop writing proficiency. In the advanced book, the author explores the final three levels of the writing process.

Editorial Reviews

Dr Sarno has selected Mr. Dru's Joshua's Masai Mask as the final test in both her textbooks. This story provides African American male children with appropriate role models and shows how she selected material to appeal to a wide range of school children. As an educator who promotes diverse learning experiences for culturally and linguistically diverse children, Dr. Sarno's contribution is an exemplar of culturally relevant pedagogy.
