Fortunately, the original and far better researched article by Jennifer Buckingham, Kevin Wheldall and Robyn Beaman-Wheldall is available: WHY JAYDON CAN’T READ: THE TRIUMPH OF IDEOLOGY OVER EVIDENCE IN TEACHING READING
The format of this wonderful article is that it asks and answers questions, makes assertions and backs up everything with evidence (72 endnotes to studies and further articles).
I'll just provide the subheadings which comprise the questions and assertions and encourage you to read the original:
- What is effective reading instruction?
- Why do so many children still struggle to learn to read?
- Many teachers are not using the most effective methods for teaching reading
- The ‘Peter effect’ in language skills—One cannot give what one does not possess
- Teacher education does not prepare teachers to use effective reading instruction
- Why are teachers not taught or required to use effective evidence-based reading instruction?
- What can be done?
