I am so happy I read this!!!! In my district we have to use the basal reader with the suggested days aligned for it. I have never really like the one fit all aproach so I started using the book in the basal as a mentor text and supply students with my own books. But,I have always felt bad about it because my school spends so much money in these basal readers. I am glad Im the only person that feels that basal is not the way to go.
