Attack! 25 The battle for primary school reading – is the phoneme on the wall? Part 2

Welcome to ATTACK! 

ATTACK! is a two-page occasional publication giving attention to the curriculum – the holistic curriculum.Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 10.25.53 AM

ATTACK! is for you, also to introduce to your colleagues. Each issue will be restricted to two pages. A cover graphic for a file or folder to store ATTACK! issues is available.

Most of ATTACK! will be concerned with the holistic curriculum which, if acted on, is a fundamental way to undermine the present undemocratic education system. Don’t be discouraged if opportunities to teach holistically are limited, do your best, be a guardian, and act as a witness to this culturally significant and inspiring way of teaching and learning.

    From a Wellington intermediate teacher: Oh, you have described that so beautifully – the Retiring Principal Effect. I love it! In these times of having a consultant constantly in our school, and target students, and radar students…. and no asking students to look in the text for something when you have them on the mat because they should have already read it and you must TEACH when they are with you……. don’t waste time by waiting while they read silently…… I speak out, as I tend to, and say – we don’t need all this intense and earnest nonsense. We just need someone taking the students gently through a journal story. (Obviously with a few skills thrown in, but you know what I mean.) Oh, the Retiring Principal Effect. Wonderful!
