The Big Education Story This Week--And Every Week--Is Reading

Written By onci on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 | 4:23 PM

Did you know we have 50 million functional illiterates? That should be a clue that our Education Establishment is lost and needs to rethink a lot of dumb ideas. I believe that reading is ground zero in the education wars. If we are to save the public schools, we first have to save reading. That means everybody ought to know why Sight Words, Whole Words, and Dolch Words don’t work. Fortunately, this is easy! Read this short, hard-hitting article: “Let’s Rescue Reading: Here’s The Plan.”

Or visit YouTube where I’ve got eight graphic videos on reading--search “Why Sight Words Don’t Work” (other titles will appear on the right side of the YouTube page). Then spread the word. Parents especially need to be able to defend their kids against dumb reading ideas.

In a hurry? Here's the whole thing explained in less than 3 minutes: "Kindergarten Sight Words: Not A good Idea."
