As I write this blog on Wednesday morning after our historic presidential election, I'm struck by an article I read on msnbc.com. Howard Fineman summarized what he saw as Obama's seven-prong approach to his campaign that served him well.
It was easy for me to see how well these same seven prongs could serve schools and districts well as they consider how they teach reading.
Below are the seven prongs as described by Fineman, with each prong's relationship to reading summarized. See what you think!
