I have been spending quite a bit of time this year writing my thesis in Secondary Education. For my thesis I have focused mainly on the America's Choice Ramp-Up to Literacy Program. I feel that I have acquired quite a bit of research in this area and I feel very comfortable writing about it. My final project for this class will be using this program as its main focus. I will attempt to write a manifesto which argues why this program is ineffective in several areas. I will propose to make several changes within the program in order to make it more realistic and ultimately more affective for the teachers, schools and the students.
