Started listening to Emily Hanford’s Sold a Story podcast after seeing it mentioned on Hacker News this morning. It’s got me reflecting pretty hard on how we were taught growing up, and what I was taught about teaching reading when I was studying for a teaching license. As someone pursuing secondary grade licensures I didn’t have much direct exposure to how young kids were being taught to read, but I definitely saw the impacts of kids not being strong readers by the time they got to classes I was in.
