incorrect information was given out?


I was floored. One of the presenters went over the list over phonemic awareness skills backwards. She had segmenting the sounds in words as the easiest and rhyming as the most difficult.

That's a new one for me, but not at all surprising. When the state gets a big idea, they often jump on things without thoroughly checking out the who and the what of it all. The speaker was probably connected to someone of importance and got the job without really proving she knew her stuff. At least you'd already had it in the past and saved yourself some time and trouble.

Good idea. ;) I was wondering how these people got signed up for doing this. I should ask. The other lady was a teacher at my school last year. She's at a new school this year.
