Phonics Exposed: Understanding and Resisting Systematic Direct Intense Phonics Instruction

 
26

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 points out the dangers of this type of teaching, which eliminates creativity, individuality, and diversity on the part of the teachers and students. Students may learn the skills of reading in these classes, but they do not learn independent or critical thinking strategies. Meyer rightly points out the dangers of scripted instructional programs and the politicians who mandate them.
