Build a strong literacy foundation for all students grades K-6

Reading vs. writing instruction. Small-group vs. whole-group instruction. Direct vs. dialogic instruction. How are you supposed to balance all of your students’ learning needs while getting through all the curriculum you need to cover?

The answer: by taking a balanced literacy approach.

To create the perfect balance of high-impact learning experiences that engage and excite learners, teachers must:

  • Be intentional in the design of learning activities
  • Select instructional materials comprised of both informational and narrative texts
  • Utilize evidence-based teaching methods
  • Be strategic in groupings of students based on assessment data

Balanced Literacy Workshops, developed by Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey, help teachers develop evidence-based approaches to implement balanced literacy in elementary classrooms.
