Whole Language Has NOT Been Debunked or Disproven
This current podcast looks at another un-understanding that has been fabricated out of tiny bits of ignorance, misconceptions, and intellectual sloth. This is the fallacy that whole language has somehow been debunked … that whole language is a failure … that research has proven whole language to be ineffective … I would again respond: nonsense, twaddle, and poppycock. So much nonsense, twaddle, and poppycock to address – Where does one begin? That perhaps would have been a good name for this series.
In this podcast, I will first do a bit de-debunking of the great un-understanding related to whole language. Then I will provide a bit of information that might help to understand what whole language actually is.
