From examining Chapter 7 of "Results Now: How We Can Achieve Unprecedented Improvements in Teaching and Learning", the paper explains that M. Schmoker makes crucial distinctions between authentic literary teaching methods and the current lax literacy instruction trend. The writer of this paper states that avoidance of arrested development in literacy training in early grade school years can set the tone for the student's continued literacy acquisition. The paper concludes that students have to be motivated; however, the current model for motivating literacy in schools is woefully insufficient, due in large part to desensitization and complacence at the administrative and instruction levels.
From the Paper:"Many of those consequences emanate from the fact that the popular notion of reading in small groups, and the focused attention that students receive in these groups, is effective for the students receiving the attention, but the students outside the small groups are not doing anything in this so-called down time from intensive classroom literary education. Further problems stem from the lack of quality control in the whole class instruction phase. Many things that are classified as literacy instruction are actually not teaching students to read at all."
