The science of literacy is not a thing, so can we please stop saying that it is?
from School Leaders Now
Learning to read is a lot like trying to lose weight. If there were an exact science for either, everyone would be sitting around at a healthy weight happily reading the next book in the stack they keep next to their bed. Yet, we are bombarded with statements like, "It's just calories in and calories out" or "It's as simple as your ABCs." But it's not so simple, is it? Human beings have complex issues that cannot be solved with one easy solution. So, let's stop treating literacy as if it can easily addressed and start training teachers to really help kids learn to read.
