Let's make the "next normal" a "better normal."

Explore professional books and service offerings for teachers, coaches, and school leaders so that, together, we can benefit from the lessons learned to accelerate learning, rebuild agency, and rethink schools. It's time to "rebound" to a better normal!

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.
