Students in traditional and/or classical schools are reading CS Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe on their own in Grade 4 and 5. See the curriculum links at bottom. Meanwhile, “progressive” OCSB has to have teachers reading the same book to students. Readalouds. Sad! Grade 5s being read a book they should be reading themselves in Grade 3
This is progress for the 21st century? this is “deep learning”?
