"If it's not working, you are not implementing it properly. It is the most effective way of teaching reading and writing, but it takes talented teachers to implement it."

You say the preceding with such authority! Have you really tried every single way of teaching reading and writing? I thought not. Then how can you make such a definitive statement?

Why not just say it works for you, instead of disparaging everyone who says they don't like it?

By the way, I hate it, find it shallow, and think that if you need it, you are probably a pretty mediocre teacher!

You like that?

I thought not!
