Hello Everyone, I would like your feedback on NCLB. I have been studying this topic for quite some time, and would like to know how you feel about this matter. I am starting a new job based on funding for the Illinois State Pre-K for All program. I know our district has not made AYP, and the pressure is on everyone to get the reading scores up. That being said, I understand that my principal wants me to make sure I have my preschoolers reading! How do you feel about this?? I have to admit, I am more into Piaget, and learning thru play. But, I got to eat too! So if she wants me teaching 3 years old to read..hey what can I say? So here it goes. Feel free to add or omit what you wish. Thanks in advance!! 1. How long have you been teaching? 2. What is your race and sex? (DELETED - optional!) 3. Have you altered or radically changed your teaching style because of NCLB and/or state standards in last 2 yrs. 4. Have you seen an increase in reading and math programs? (Examples include SRA Open Court Reading for Pre-K, Language for Learning and Saxon Math for Pre-K.) 5. Have you had any program removed or reduced from your class in the last 2 yrs, (i.e. recess, nap time reduced, free time or foreign languages eliminated) 6. Do you think preschool children need a stronger curriculum to prepare them for high stakes testing? 7. Is your program a private school/church based/or public elementary school? 8. any other comments you would like to add? Appreciate your feedback! I have two weeks before my kids start, so I'll be getting my room together, and watching other teachers! Then, I know I'll be back here soon! This will help me a lot!!! edited to add....Race and sex are optional!
