– We have now reviewed the three major publishers' new
Grade 1 English Reading programs
approved by Texas' State Board of Education for 2019
- Into Reading – Houghton Mifflin Harcourt ©2020
- Texas Wonders – McGraw-Hill ©2020
- myView Literacy – Pearson ©2020
These will enter Texas 1st
Grade classrooms in the fall of 2019 and remain there for at least 8 years,
maybe longer. We scrutinized (1) how well they teach Reading by real phonics, and (2) story content. Our phonics
review criteria this year match those in
our report on Texas' current Grade 1 English Reading programs adopted in 2010.
We are faxing our one-page summary comparison chart on these new programs twice to each Texas ISD and charter school in
January 2019 – once to textbook selection committees and once to superintendents – with full, fast, FREE documentation emailed on request.
