Reading Skill and Content Knowledge: The Debate Continues

In case you missed my post yesterday about a lively debate shaping up about reading skills, you might want to take a look.

It started when Robert Pondiscio at the Core Knowledge blog posted some thoughts about "literacy creep" in response to an EdWeek story about reading aloud to adolescent students. You can get links to both the EdWeek story and Pondiscio's post in my blog post from yesterday.

Now, more readers are posting interesting responses to Pondiscio on the Core Knowledge blog. The dialogue they're having, about the role content knowledge plays in the development of adolescent literacy skills, is sure to keep resonating as states grapple with adopting common standards and designing curriculum to reflect those standards.
