This program does not belong in the middle schools
unless it is paired with best practice including but not
limited to Common Assessments driven by state bench
marks. Middle school kids sitting on a rug in a secondary
setting does not promote growth and maturity socially or
emotionally. Some students continue baby talk along with
immature behaviors and I believe treating them like
elementary students is NOT conducive to overall growth.
This program is not necessary to achieve a love for books
and deeper understandings of text.
Fountas and Pinnell should NOT be a sole curriculum.
