This is one of the many road blocks on the way to research aligned literacy in schools. I was asked to stop publicly “bashing” my school district after voicing my concerns. We need to push on as factually and respectfully as possible. The bullying comes from a place of fear.

My first grader was told to “look at the picture” if she’s unsure about a word she’s reading. I’ve watched her say “tortoise” instead of “turtle,” “over” instead of “across,” etc. It’s not an effective strategy.

After every training I do, multiple elementary teachers come up to me and share their frustration about how unprepared they are to teach students to read. I had one last week who spend over 100K on her degree at a prestigious private college here in NC. She is 😡...rightfully so

It is so helpful to hear educators who changed from BL practices to evidence aligned instruction share their stories. If you are one of them, what was the impetus for your change? What did/could someone say and how did they say it to create the opening for that shift? Thanks!

Yet awareness is respectfully needed, as recipients take on board knowledge that is crucial for beginning readers, but counter to years of well-intended but faulty practice. I have found a ‘guns ablazing’ approach (guilt!) to be counter productive. L for W is a fine door opener.

If your identity is based on helping kids and you find out something you've really relied on has been harmful (or even benign) it can be a soul crushing experience. We need to acknowledge these feelings if we're to make any meaningful change in practice.
