Pendulum in the right direction
In listening to the podcast I’ve heard repeatedly “teachers may be skeptical about change”. I think it’s quite the opposite. Teachers have known about the problems with the way in which we have taught decoding and comprehension for a long time. However our hands are tied with our curriculum. We are rated on our ability to implement the curriculum regardless of our personal beliefs. One of the biggest knowledge gaps I’ve experienced is having every student read different texts of their choice and then expecting students to all have the same academic outcome. Teachers did not invent the word facilitator of education. Textbook companies that have profited off of our students’ suffering have. Children need teachers who carve explicit academic pathways that engage students and drive their thirst for knowledge. To do this well we need vetted vertically aligned curriculum At least textbooks created equity.
Flatulence of academics
Self absorbed academics inflated with debased coin of valuable content.
A podcast of specialized experts in reading which is amateurishly produced. So much money wasted on their research yet where is the yield?
Don’t waste time. At least a reference is given to search elsewhere.
Sad for their captives—the university students—$$$.
Great podcast. As an SLP, I wish you would consider including an episode with and SLP like Jan Wasowicz or Pamela Snow. I think many teachers do not know that they already have professionals in their buildings that have completed coursework in phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, discource, etc. We can be a great resource for teachers.
