Let’s Skip the Salad Dressing

  1. I was having a discussion with someone the other day related to this – they were saying that we should be using a wider range of reading materials for kids who are reading below grade level. In particular they said graphic novels that more closely resembled the violent video games and movies these kids sometimes (or most times) watch. I’m not sure myself. Some of the talk about reaching the “digital natives” through video, web presentations, programing that matches their shorter attention spans etc. strikes me as “giving up” and not doing the real work of reading or writing.

  2. Hey Bud, I’m new to your site and really enjoyed this latest blog. I’m a SPED teacher in a inclusion English III class. I see everyday the lack of reading, writing, and critical thinking skills in my students. We have a lot of work to do in order to get them ready for the upcoming writing assessments. I don’t think the latest ” golly gee whiz” will be the answer. A love of learning (broccoli) is definitely the key.
