  1. I can’t believe Edmonds District is adopting Lucy Calkins’ program. It is not just the lack of phonics instruction and other skills that is a problem.. It is a utilization of time problem together with the lack of direct (or explicit) instruction. I have observed classes using this program and there are a lot of children sitting around with no direction. They are supposed to be reading books–but unless the teacher spends some time providing instruction to the class–children are bewildered, Effective reading teachers spend some time teaching to the whole class. There is nothing wrong with that as long as there is also small group instruction and individualized instruction. Balance in reading is the key–and always has been–but instead we tend to swing from extreme to the other. Either highly structured skills programs or literature based programs such as “Whole language.
