Listen Up: Gerald Coles on the Issues

Information provided by Steve Krashen.

Gerald Coles LIVE, on the radio!

Coles is one of the strongest critics of the National Reading Panel report, a first-class scholar, and, I am told, a dynamic speaker. He is one of the few people on the planet who has actually read the entire NRP report, as well as most of the studies the panel uses as evidence. Coles is also an expert on brain studies, and has published insightful and critical analyses of the highly publicized brain studies that claim that heavy phonics is the path to literacy. Check out his excellent books at Heinemann.com or amazon.com.
