About this Course Series: Balanced Literacy

Balanced Literacy is an approach whose goal is to develop lifelong readers and thinkers. This method exposes students to the habits of good readers by interacting with many genres and styles of literature. The Workshop Model, a model for both reading and writing, contains a three-part structure: the mini-lesson, independent/small group work, and a share session. Participants will explore these components and learn how to create a classroom environment that supports effective literacy instruction for all learners. Both formal and informal assessment instruments will be examined.
