Teaching and Learning is So Complex I needed to hit Pause.
"I just find it sad that about 40% of kids in third grade can't read at grade level. So-- it must be hard for you guys (generic usage)trying to teach writing (or anything else) when a child has problems using reading as an input mechanism. My research suggests that these kids need to be addressed in kindergarten if remediation is to be successful. I know that this sounds like kind of a downer; but, coffee is where it needs to be discussed."
This is a quote from Warren's post on my One Hot Chocolate discussion.
I thought this complex issue warranted its own discussion.
What do you think teachers? Why, why, why?
