I've already started a thread via the 'General Forum' featuring responses to author Lucy Calkins' essay, The Science of Reading:

Lucy has really kicked up a storm in defence of her own literacy programme and multi-cueing word-guessing guidance!

Here is a piece in APM Reports continuing to feature the battle between proponents of different reading instruction methods:

New salvos in the battles over reading instruction

Several powerful people and organizations have weighed in on the national conversation prompted by APM Reports' podcast episodes.

Podcast episodes by APM Reports have raised questions about materials for teaching reading that are widely used in American schools. An author of those materials, Lucy Calkins, recently fired back at "phonics-centric people." Calkins was one of several powerful people and organizations to weigh in on the debate about how to teach reading in the past few weeks.

Senior education correspondent Emily Hanford's work on the science of reading has helped spark a national conversation. There's been lively discussion on social media and at education conferences. And many teachers and education officials say they are changing their approach to reading instruction.

However not everyone is happy with the direction things are going.
