Reid Lyon on Reading First

By Christina A. Samuels — May 05, 2008 1 min read

G. Reid Lyon, a key architect of the Reading First program and the former chief of the child development and behavior branch at the National Institutes of Health, weighed in today on the interim report on Reading First released last week.

His in-depth responses on the ednews.org website offer a different perspective on the report, which showed no difference in reading comprehension levels for students who were instructed in Reading First, and those who were not.

Thanks to JohnL at Teach Effectively for the tip.
