SAT Score Dilemma

                                                                                   Following is a great link:

American Educator, Winter 2010-11, Vol. 34, No. 4, AFT

to the magazine, The American Educator,  with an article by MJAdams on the SAT dilemma.  Adams is known best for her work in beginning reading and the brain.  

The title of the article is: Advancing our Students; Language and Literacy, The Challenge of Complex Text.  It explores how the complexity of high school texts have steadily dropped over the last 50 years - and how this issue needs to be dealt with in the common core. 

The question I think it poses is -- If we need to start where the child can read, have we prepared our teachers to teach hard for acceleration?

See what you think.
