Md. county may eliminate reading instruction in middle school - courtesy of ASCD

  • Here is a great article on integrating writing across the content areas as a required instructional format.  This is consistent with what we have been examining through staff development in Maine.  Bravo!
    School board officials in Howard County, Md., are considering a new schedule for middle-school students that would eliminate traditional reading classes. Instead, literacy instruction would be integrated in other courses throughout the school day. The change would not affect students reading below grade level, who still would receive reading-specific instruction, and advanced readers could elect to take a course in "advanced inquiry and innovation."
