Direct Instruction

Folks-


An amusing piece aired on "20/20" this evening about this fellow John
Engilmann (sp?) and his direct instruction techniques. I would suppose this
guy must rank with our school's friend, John Saxon, for villification among
reformers.

I'm interested in hearing more about this fellow. He teaches at the Univ. of
Oregon.

BTW. The California Reading Taskforce, called by Supt. Delaine Eastin, took a
strong position calling for a balanced reading program, telling teachers to
bring their phonics out of the closet. The whole language folk took some real
gas.

I'm curious. Do folks who dismiss the efficacy of standardized testing
regarding mathematics dismiss testing of reading by standardized means? My
experience in ed school led me to believe that reading levels are easily
diagnosed.

Lazily yours,

Hart
