I agree Gina. I am a reading specialist and I don't always use leveled text but I do have kids who are so far behind. For example I have a group of third graders who are reading two years behind so we are backing up and teaching basic decoding skills. Some of the groups do use grade level text but I have to say if a child is very far behind they will probably just get frustrated and I find that's where behavior problems start.
Sad, our leaders in Literacy are unarmed.We have gone downhill since 1990! Lots of big words though. But what do I know. Public education has been in effect for 199 years and we know zero. Horrible… They should think about reading…? hahahaha I have 20 years exp saving kids from his type programs!
Any chance someone could point me to the dissertation Tim mentions?
