What's Wrong with Predictable Texts?

Alison Clarke's, "What's Wrong With Repetitive or Predictable Text?"

In this video Alison brings along a "pretend" literacy beginner and shows you predictable and repetitive text from the learner's point of view. It's very revealing.

It makes many good points about why predictable text with pictures teaches kids how to look at picture clues instead of actually learning how to read. If you haven't watched it- it is a must watch!
