If You're Not Watching Learning Matters on YouTube, You Really Should Be

It's the channel where ace education reporter John Merrow shares the clips that normally run on the Newshour on PBS. It's always great, it's always thought-provoking, and it's always worth your time.

The clip above is on first grade reading in New Orleans. For anyone who has taught early elementary, you'll appreciate the scenes on teaching beginning reading. Part 2 gets into the struggles that low readers go through; it's a neat set, and if I were principal I'd think this would be perfect beginning-of-year staff meeting material.

You can find it all on the LearningMatters YouTube channel, here.
