What factors come to mind when you hear the term “Balanced Literacy?” It is a term that has been used (and misused) for so long that it has lost meaning. Time to restore and refine!

Join reading experts Nancy Akhavan, Doug Fisher, and Nancy Frey as they outline the essential evidence-based approaches that define the balance for your students, lighting the path for you to implement balanced literacy in your classroom.

With all the demands schools face today, time never seems to be on our side.

During this interactive webinar (get ready to participate and add your voice to the conversation through a google doc if you choose!), Julie and Barry will share some key strategies that will help you launch and sustain small-group learning opportunities with students’ curiosities, passions, habits, and needs in mind.


Simply Stations, Grades K-4: What Does the Rest of the Class Do During Small Groups?

Monday, May 18, 2020 - 3:30pm PDT

Presented by Debbie Diller

Literacy work stations, when done well, can solve both of these problems—and more. Literacy stations provide partner practice using what teachers already have in their classrooms. During her presentation, Debbie will show teachers how to create and sustain meaningful, engaging literacy stations that grow and change as their students develop new skills, and as instructional time shifts. Plus, teachers will be reminded how to make confident decisions based on what they know about their kids and about good literacy instruction—so they can move away from quick-fix ideas like worksheets or pre-made centers found online.

Presented by Jim Burke

Jim Burke knows personally, both from his own teaching and his consulting work with schools nationwide, that the standards—whether state-based or Common Core—provide a set of core beliefs about what students need to learn to be academically- and career-ready and mirror best teaching practices. Jim finds that the standards are both validating—confirming those practices teachers are already implementing in their classrooms—and  liberating—providing research-based structures and strategies that help teachers and students engage in important ideas and inquiry.
