    Thank you for letting me know about this. I am looking forward to listening to it. Yes, it doesn't get much more important than reading for a topic.

    Yes! Loved it! I felt like I could have written the entire podcast myself! Everything in it I have battled with at my previous school when I began working there and first learned about this Calkins, F and P, and guided reading business.

    Not only do I think the information about reading and writing is important, the theme of adaption of ideas in the educational sphere and the fight to hold on to ideas is a huge topic.

    I haven’t listened to that podcast yet, but I read her article “At a Loss for Words.”

    My district had always had F&P, that’s what I was taught in college, and I was FURIOUS when I got halfway through my masters and found out there’s literal, actual science on how we learn to read and it’s not even NEW.

    Thankfully my state (now?) requires schools to adopt evidence based curricula, not just research based, in order to maintain accreditation. The district spent butt tons of money on F&P classroom/PWS junk that all went straight in the trash not even 3 years later when the state said it was NOT evidence based. We’re fully on the SOR train now; every teacher is getting LETRS training and we have CKLA as our ELA curriculum (adoption is rough but it’s so good), 95% Groups PLL as our intervention rolling out soon, and time allotted for intervention groups.

    I bet you were.

    I can really feel for those who have never learned the skills necessary to teach reading, even in their elementary years. Their heads must be spinning.
