Unveils the implications and consequences of teaching phonics via a systematic direct intense program that mandates all children to experience the same scripted lesson at the same time.
Richard Meyer accurately describes what a scripted reading classroom looks like. I have observed in classes like his, and they follow the same format.

Meyer rightly points out the dangers of scripted instructional programs and the politicians who mandate them.
