My morning Reading First reading turned up the name Doug Carnine -- a name that's new to me and seems wonderfully carnivorous. According to this post (Lawmaking- turned- moneymaking), Carnine is a former student of of Ed Kame’enui and then U.S. Commissioner of Special Education who followed Bush to Washington and developed Reading First. No subpoena for Carnine, however.

Slow down all ye with your pitch forks, torches, and others who like to hear what only they want to know... The programs Carnine, Kame-enui, and many others promote actually WORK!!! Hello!

I've successfully used Carnine's materials and his phonics' approach. Non-readers became readers. Isn't that the goal? I suppose some teachers find the approach dry and lacking in fanfare. Empirical approaches to teaching are a way for us, as teachers, to understand clearly what works and why it works. Mary Opalenik
