More good stuff from Emily Hanford

I was particularly interested to see how Zoom lessons during lockdown had enabled parents to see the ineffective methods being used by teachers. The free lockdown videos we had in England were vastly better, I think.

Thank you for flagging up the important reporting of Emily Hanford in America, Jenny.

I've added Emily's latest podcasts (for which there are transcripts) via a thread featuring her work at the International Foundation for Effective Reading Instruction:

This is important information for anyone concerned about the teaching of reading in the English language, not just people and parents in the USA.

All podcasts so far in this series - I think there's still one to come:

It seems that the US is lagging far behind England in getting sensible reading instruction into schools.

Emily Hanford's 'Sold a Story' series is definitely causing quite a stir in the US, and supported internationally by people aware of the reading debate.

I've added a new link to a parents' open letter in response to criticisms of Emily's series - it's quite an impressive letter!

Someone criticised the parents' response saying it was 'too angry' but, to be honest, I think parents' anger is well justified! Teachers, too, are justified in being angry and dismayed about their lack of evidence-informed training and the perpetuation of big publishers' literacy programmes that promote the multi-cueing word-guessing that is referred to as '3-cueing' in America:

Some time ago, Marilyn Jäger Adams wrote a great piece querying where the 'Three Cueing System' originated. I write about this here:
