LISTEN: Peter Dewitz On Basal Readers

( Click here to download the podcast )

Peter Dewitz is a professor, author, and educational consultant. For years, he worked on basal readers — you could even say (literally!) that he’s written the book on the topic: The Essential Guide To Selecting And Using Core Reading Programs.

As part of our PBS NewsHour piece on reading and the Common Core, producer Cat McGrath spoke to Dewitz about the business of basal readers — and the future of what our kids will be reading as a result of the Common Core.
