News to me...I was sent a link to this article from the NY Daily News...
It explains how New York City is planning on taking another approach to reading education, different than the current balanced literacy, including Teacher's College Reading and Writing Project. I know that the programs are changed every few years but right now, I know of a lot of schools that use this curriculum and it is what I have used since starting my career. According to the article, however, it is a failing approach and was not recommended for literacy instruction since NYC students are not performing at proficient levels and haven't been in the past 10 years.
What do you think?
