The February issue of the Journal of Educational Leadership–titled “Rooted in Reading”–delves into a number of reading related topics. One of the articles–“Drawing on Reading Science Without Starting a War”–is of interest to our learning community given the emphasis our department of education has chosen to place on the “science” of reading. To be clear, I’m not endorsing the article or the author’s arguments. Rather, I thought it might be something we could talk about if you’re interested. The article is open access, so if you have time, give it a read and let me know what you think. If it is something we do want to talk about, I’m happy to build time into our schedule. Have a good weekend fellow English teachers!
