One of our most popular guests, Tim Shanahan, returns! In our most recent episode, he reminisces about the creation of the National Reading Panel in 1997 and the release of its subsequent groundbreaking report. He highlights how reading instruction has evolved and discusses how new research seems to be changing the landscape of the “reading wars” he thought were settled long ago.
“We continue to learn, and we continue to refine.”
“When people are trying to tell you how you should teach, I think you need to ask some real basic questions about what evidence supports those recommendations.”
