So what is dyslexia really??

The official view of dyslexia is  that it is a mental impairment which a great percentage of children are born with. They bring this defect to the classroom. Naturally no reasonable person would expect our public schools to teach these defective students how to read, etc.  

 In this way, when schools decline and reading scores drop still lower, the Education Establishment has an all-purpose…

Bringing Humanness to Active Leadership

It is the leader who understands, on a deep personal level, what change asks of a person and who can operate off of that personal understanding who can engender trust. That was the difference between our friend's  failed attempt and the slower but more successful second attempt. He overcame resistance and resentment by becoming a sense maker as he invited the organization to accompany him on the change journey. …

3 Essential Personal Attributes of Leaders

Understanding the needs of 21st century school change, and working with districts that are struggling to do the work set before them on a daily basis while leading forward, takes more than developing, understanding, and leading a shared vision for change. It requires the capacity to understand one's self and to muster up the courage to do the work we were called to do. It calls for moral and ethical behavior. It requires the leader to have the strength to…

Let's Make Soup! by Christopher Wooleyhand, Ph.D.

Thursday, February 4th is National Homemade Soup Day. To celebrate, three members of the #mdeschat PLN shared what “ingredients” make a school great. They offer the following food for thought, which is best digested with a nice bowl of homemade soup, you decide what kind!



“I’d say the three most important ingredients that will determine if a school is great are people, relationships, and mindset. A great school doesn’t ever reach “greatness.” The stakeholders have a growth mindset… Continue

Sight-words, Dolch words, and such are biggest con in American history

Quora asked people to name the biggest scams and cons in American history. A lot of entertaining answers are given.

I think the obvious answer is: using reading instruction that you know won't work. That is, any reading instruction that is non-phonetic and requires children to memorize words as graphic designs.

 I write about this stuff all the time. So I get a chance to see how completely inertial the society is. All the big shots, the…

FENG SHUI YOUR RESUME by Larry Aronstein

                                                            FENG SHUI YOUR RESUME

For a moment, imagine that your resume is the living room of your home. As your guests enter the room, you want them to immediately focus on those special artifacts that are the centerpieces of your room. The placement of the furniture must be mindfully placed so that they are noticeable and maximize their impact. You want to remove the chachkas, those knickknacks and gaudy items that Aunt Sarah…

Is it Political Correctness or Simple Kindness?

We must be careful, as educators, not to allow being 'politically correct' be interpreted as weakness.  In our business, neither strength nor bravery can be associated with demeaning or deriding others. Both in children and adults, labeling and name-calling allows the speaker to express hostility, vitriol, or mockery.  Name-calling is brutal and hurtful and inflammatory.  For some, the shell of defense may be so hard that the receiver does not note the expression as immediately…
