Today I was told that I would be using a computer program to teach my children how to read. They will put headphones on their ears. They will listen to everything being read to them as they follow along. They will make keyboard clicks to navigate through the program and answer questions. Consequently, the program will leave me with an assessment of what they know, what they don’t know, and how “I” can help them. Oh, and one more thing–the how I can help them part is scripted.
I will read the script that “The Groupinator” has fashioned for the groups that “The Groupinator” has formed.
I wonder if “The Groupinator” will write my lesson plans…hmmm. I’ll have to look into that…food for thought…
I also learned…this is not optional.
Every student will follow this program.
Every student will spend a minimum of twenty minutes a day on the program.
One more thing…
I have 7 computers in my class of 20 students.
…only three of those computers work.
