Barton reading and spelling powerpoint by suellen mee

  • Good job, Suellen. I need to watch more clips of Barton in action, because I'm still curious why every single student has to be there to teach the class. And I suppose that is something you can only understand by watching how lessons unfold day after day. But it seems very restrictive. Like Randi says that would seem to me to make it a very difficult program to implement.

    It's fun to be able to use local results like that to prove its efficacy. And I'm very intrigued by this program, due in no small part to how structured and demanding it sounds. - Ryan

  • This is Randi Henderson. I also really liked Barton, and I was glad you were able to find so many pieces of research about its effectiveness, especially right in our own backyard! It seems like this one would be more difficult than others to implement in schools because it takes so much time and has to be done in such a particular way, but I guess if it is effective than it is worth it!
