Time for a Little Comprehension
Nov 24, 2008
From Doug Noon, because it needs to be said: "people overlook the 'scientifically-based' textbooks scam. It turns out that news of the $6 billion Reading First con, which Margaret Spellings announced and defended, produces no significant difference in reading comprehension... Now, can we please return to studying comprehension instruction?" It seems to me that too much time has been spent looking for short cuts and magic solutions (and that still seems to be the expectation of online learning).
