We were supposed to begin the Corrective Reading program yesterday; that didn't happen. In fact, not all of the students had been placed, and I hadn't received the student books.
I'm read to begin the program because I couldn't care less how prescriptive it is; if students learn to read, then let's make it happen. Though that is a bit disingenuous. I want our students to learn from the Corrective Reading, I just don't want to read the script to them.
Ultimately though, I'd like to restart this process and have it work much better. The district decided to use Corrective Reading but didn't make that choice in time to allow this year's schedule to accomodate the program. As a result, we are trying to fit the program into a schedule that isn't designed for mid-year program changes. I would have waited until next year to implement the program allowing for a seamless transition from the status quo.
