@ame_lemieux I am beginning to wonder if foundational skills ending phonemic awareness in 2nd grade shows a level of racism and dominant narrative. Many people go on honing their skills manipulating sounds long after 2nd grade

Greg McVerry

And most teachers who won't fold under political pressure of "science of reading" aren't against explicit phonics instruction. Heck has a foundational skills sections and many teacher prep programs take Foundations of Reading

@CarolineLehman Sorry broke thread. Tried to do 3-12th . read back on blog. Love teaching nuance of structure but want to show sometimes scope & sequence of makes little sense always shows bias

A major shift in the happens in the reading of literature in 3rd grade. Based on grade level expectation students are expected to now cite textual evidence in their writing and discussin CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.3.5
"Refer to parts"

@LaurenTTutor718 not saying disadvantaged at all by phonemic awareness, trying to make point our national curriculum and focus on defining literacy and how it is taught reflects dominant narrative rather than oral traditions of many students

Greg McVerry

One short comings of is mess it makes with how we play with words & sounds..scope out literary devices through k-8, the sequence and reasoning makes no sense. Do fiurwtive language in preschool, always encourage kids to manipulate sound
