No, Lucy Calkins, Someone Does Get to Own the Term “The Science of Reading”

When Richard and I were trying to come up with a title for this site while finding an available domain name that was catchy, relevant, and—most importantly—less than $25,000 a friend suggested that I check to see whether thescienceofreading.com was available.

I did a quick search on godaddy.com, and alas, ’twas not to be.

But as as my friend managed to pointed out (barely, through gales of laughter), Lucy Calkins is wrong: someone actually does get to own the term “the science of reading.” On the internet, at least.

Just wanted to point that out.
