"That's been replaced by online for grams students sign into work on math writing or science. And in this digital age the favoured form of communication. But most teenagers short slang Evie texter, Snapchat messages. So what role does Kercheval play the classroom these days? Well, according to LA US's school board cursive, can still play a positive role in the curriculum. They want still taught Francis Gibson as chief academic officer. So what did cursive, do for me that I'm not aware of because what I remember of cursive, is sitting there, even as a kid going, why do I have to do this? And that was before the time of like I pads. Things that we can think about is that Chris is technology much like many of the technologies that we have today and many, students excessive measured in the ways in which they should speed and officiency in their thoughts. And that may come in the form of, you know, how they work in a digital domain. That technology of paper pen pencil. And so our leaders wanted to make sure that as I think about our global inclination and age that we also have the basic skills, and ensure that our students can read things like the constitution and some of the primary source documents, they'll have incredible relevance today in the work that we do around citizenship, and literacy in our schools. And for those who argue that what do I needed for these days? Everything I do is either a text or I'm typing it. What do I need cursive for the, the same argument be made that way, you still have to learn math, even though we do have calculators? Well, indeed, we wanna make sure that literacy across all those Maine's, and I think that approach is really about a well-balanced back that, so if we want students to have between letters and thoughts and ideas, there's a lot of researchers painted Kristen. Maybe one way to help us do that. And in fact, some of the research is bearing fruit around that. And one of the things that were very conscious of is, when students are publishing their thoughts wanna make sure that they can present them in a way to other readers. So what I'm kind of hearing you saying is cursive may be a way to train the brain a little differently or gets you thinking certain way it's good practice for for something that helps you later on. It helps us didn't engage in different ways of. Connecting their brain to thoughts and we're also think some of the research, come out of our working groups when we think about how this Lexus students, learn to ignore some of that research would be foolish for us as learners. So we're engaging network and finding a balanced way to approach it in our school district. I know the daily was superintendent Austin view is, is backing this plan. But was there a lot of back and forth within the school board on discussing, whether they should be lamented or not? Well, it's already in our state standards. In fact, as you look at the common core standards states then added in fifteen percent. And so when you see in second grade, it says create readable documents legible print and then you move to third grade. And it says, right. Legibly cursive or join Calix I could go on with us standards. But in fact, they are present in our curriculum, and it's more about finding the balance and making sure that part of ending process for students as they think about the publications in their classroom. Do you still use it because I feel like it drops off for a lot of people like I don't I don't use it. Definitely wanted to technologies. I would say that I use, and I definitely know how to read and cursive writing. And as former history, tried wanna make sure that my students have access to reading some of the primary source documents like our declaration of independence and the constitution, and, and it's interesting because some students, I'm still struggle with reading, documents let alone writing cursive, writing.

"Society, Because we we just and invented that stop seeps into reading us and writing unbidden, relatively even recently when we as think human we beings. aren't biased So we just and even our when brains we close literally the don't door know how to against do it. it. It's something that we need to learn, and it is something that most people, in fact, all people need to be systematically taught some people learn it with very very minimal instruction, but others like people with dyslexia need, lots and lots of very systematic and explicit instruction in. How words are representations of speech? Sounds because our brains are evolved to do that. If if you have if there a baby and people talk to that baby and interact with that baby. Unless there's some sort of cognitive problem or injury. That baby. Will learn to talk. It comes naturally, our brains are meant to do it. But it's not so with reading. In your reporting. You spoke you talked a lot about two separate areas. One was Bethlehem Pennsylvania. The other was Mississippi talk about what happened in Bethlehem Bethlehem is a great story, so Bethlehem Pennsylvania. Is a place that had been struggling for a while with reading, you know, sixty percent of the kids were reading proficiently, which is actually better than a lot of our Nash, our indication show is happening nationwide. They're actually struggling with a lot of things in Bethlehem that had to do some economic problems the recession had a big impact there. There was a new person who came in as the chief academic officer noticed for a few years at the reading scores weren't so great. But you know, they weren't that much worse than anywhere else. Finally, when when a lot of things kind of settled down, and they dug themselves out of the economic crisis. He kind of decided to look at this. And think what why why are so many of our kids not reading proficiently like what is up with that? And this guy was a former high school teacher social studies teacher, he didn't know anything about how kids learn to read or how they should be taught. So we literally started googling it. And what he discovered is this vast scientific literature. There is so much known. In fact, one of the people in the documentary says this is like one of the most studied aspects of human learning. So when he discovered that he thought there's all this research that says, and what the research says is that virtually all kids can learn to read we should. Not have forty percent. Fifty percent of kids struggling with reading scientists have shown in clinics and demonstration projects in classrooms that if you use approaches to teaching reading that lineup with the cognitive science about how kids learn to read virtually all kids can learn to read there's some small percentage that have such severe learning disabilities and cognitive issues that learnings reading is always going to be a struggle for them. But everyone else should be able to learn to read. So when this guy Jack Silva, the chief academic officer realized that he thought well, how come we can't get our reading scores up? So that started this multi year project to boat to figure out how are we teaching kids to read does that line up with the science, and what do we need to do to change it? And eventually they came up with the curriculum bending. Yeah. I mean curriculum is actually an interesting part of this that I did not go into depth thin in the documentary what they really focused on initially is teacher and principal knowledge. Because to the credit of the chief academic officer, Jack Silva, I think he figured out right away that this was a knowledge problem that there were some things about the way that they were teaching reading in the schools, that's pretty typical when you look at other schools in the United States that really assumed that learning to read is basically a natural process that kids learn to read by reading rather than being explicitly taught how to read so he recognized that really early and invested very heavily. I in training all of the principals at all the schools, and I think it was a really brilliant move. Because what he realized is that if the principles didn't learn this if the principles weren't convinced that. The way that reading was being taught didn't line up with the science, then they just they weren't gonna be champions for that. They weren't going to lead their teachers to that discovery to. So all of the principals went through pretty intensive training where they really learned about the basic science of reading and it's completely fascinating. They went through the studies. They showed the principal's like why a lot of the stuff that they were doing to doesn't line up with the science. And then they systematically started by training all kindergarten teachers, and then all the first and second grade teachers, and they've seen really remarkable progress at a couple of the schools in Bethlehem that used to really struggle schools with a lot of kids from poor families at a couple of the schools. They've got one hundred percent of kindergartners up to the benchmark on this test that they give them at the end of kindergarten, which is an indicator of whether they're going to struggle with reading. And actually, the really amazing thing that I don't go into into the documentary is that they've gotten a huge. Percentage of kids way above where they should be at the end of kindergarten. So they're really knocking it out of the park. So far it remains to be seen. Whether this is really going to work, and they can sustain it. And it's going to make a difference when kids get to third and fourth grade, which is where a lot of kids fall apart when they're when it comes to.

The Bethlehem school district gives kindergarteners attest to see where they are with early reading skills. The year before the science of reading training began sixty five percent of kindergartners at this school tested below the benchmark score. Meaning most of them were heading into first grade at risk of reading failure. After the kindergarten teachers were trained zero kindergarteners eclipse finished the year at risk of reading failure. And the end of this year. Same thing two years in a row every single kindergartner eclipse so was at or above the benchmark score on the reading test across the entire Bethlehem school district more than eight and ten kindergarteners met or exceeded the benchmark score up from fewer than half before the science of reading training. Started chief academic officer. Jack Silva is thrilled with the results but cautious. He's eager to see how the kindergarteners do when they get to that. Big state reading tests in. Third grade. We may have hit a home run in the first inning. But there's a lot of game left here. It's impossible to know if the science of reading training is what led to the test score gains some of the schools in the district, including calypso move from half data full day kindergarten the same year the training started. So that could have been a factor, but Kathy bast the calypso. Principal thinks that if her teachers had just been doing more of the same when it came to reading instruction.

She went to a professional development day at one of the district's lowest performing elementary schools, and they were talking about how kids attack words in a story when a child came to a word, he didn't know the teacher would tell him to look at the picture and guests the most important thing. I was for the child to understand the meaning of the story. So if the kid came to the word horse naked rains at his house, it's wrong. But if the kids said, pony, it'd be right because pony and horse mean the same thing Kim Harper was shocked first of all pony and horse. Don't mean the same thing. Plus, what do you do when you're reading a book that doesn't have any pictures the teachers described their approach to reading instruction as balanced literacy, Kim Harper didn't really know what that meant. But our colleague Jody Frank Kelly had heard lots about balanced literacy, she was working with Harper to figure out what to do about reading she'd previously been principal at one of Bethlehem's elementary schools. Jody Frank Kelly says the main idea behind balanced literacy was give kids lots of good books and with some guidance and enough practice, they become readers. We never looked at brain research. Never brain research. In the nineteen nineties. Scientists began figuring out ways to peer inside our brains, and they learned a lot about how our brains. Learn to read the scientists were doing their research in labs that were sometimes right across the quad from schools of education, but reading researchers and education researchers kind of live in separate universes. They go to different conferences published in different journals, the big takeaway from all the scientific research on reading is that learning to read is not a natural process. We are not born wired to read we are born wire to talk now. This is a toddler. He's twenty months old. It's actually my own son many years ago. What's the sound of the train may two kids? Learn to talk by being talked to being surrounded with spoken language. That's all it takes. No one has to teach them to talk pop by the tub. No, just my rubber Ducky. That's my husband reading our son. A story is pop in the cabinets. Just my toothbrush and toothpaste. Yeah. Talking comes naturally reading doesn't our brains. Don't know how to do it.

"This. Can you tell me what you're gonna do? Scratch. You're absolutely right. It's a wonderful list of things that your cat Kandar. At the end of each school year. The Bethlehem school district gives kindergarteners attest to see where they are with early reading skills. The year before the science of reading training began sixty five percent of kindergartners at this school tested below the benchmark score. Meaning most of them were heading into first grade at risk of reading failure. After the kindergarten teachers were trained zero kindergarteners eclipse finished the year at risk of reading failure. And at the end of this year same thing two years in a row every single kindergartner eclipse so was at or above the benchmark score on the reading test across the entire Bethlehem school district more than eight and ten kindergarteners met or exceeded the benchmark score up from fewer than half before the science of reading training. Started chief academic officer. Jack Silva is thrilled with the results but cautious. He's eager to see how the kindergarteners do when they get to that. Big state reading test in third grade. We may have hit a home run in the first inning. But there's a lot of a game left here. It's impossible to know if the science of reading training is what led to the test score gains some of the schools in the district, including calypso moved from half data full day kindergarten the same year the training started. So that could have been a factor, but Kathy basked the calypso principal thinks that if her. Teachers had just been doing more of the same. When it came to reading instruction. She'd still have a lot of struggling readers at her school. She says other school districts are taking note of Bethlehem's progress I've gotten calls from other administrators in other districts, what are you doing differently in Bethlehem? She remembers one call in particular. Tell me what you're doing superintendents all your scores in the paper. He asked me to call you. I spent over an hour on the phone just detailing what I've talked to you about an after all of it was said and done. Oh, I don't think that'll work. They'll be too much pushback. Too much pushback beliefs about how kids learn to read and how they.

Trainees adventure in your skill set learning? Well, it said that Stein said that once you stopped earning begin dying and as a avid learner, I've always believed in higher education.

In public schools, the shrinking class where the funds for classrooms that beginning of charter schools and so it, it's a really it can be difficult pass now the gate to find the right training for yourself.
