Thanks for the referral to this article. I couldn't agree more, but how do we convince the people running the show? They don't listen! Administrators, Reading Specialist, Curriculum Experts--they are all the same in the way they view reading and what is important! It gets tiresome!

I don't get it. Why are we having the reading wars (phonics vs. whole language) all over again? Didn't we already learn that we need BOTH?

THANK You Kiri8, that's what I thought as well. Sigh.
