    Thanks, Dr. Baker and Dr. Dewitz. My school recently took on a new core reading program. As the Reading Specialist at my school, it worries me to notice the way that some teachers seem to worship the teachers' manual, and others seem to ignore it completely. I like the way that Dr. Dewitz referred to the core reading program as a tool. I think that it is important that teachers use core reading programs as a guide toward best practice. But they must then find ways to develop comprehension strategy use in their classrooms beyond what the program suggests and provides.

    Thank you, Dr. Dewitt for clarifying that the core program is a tool and that iits effectiveness has a lot to do with how teachers actually make use of it in the classroom.
