Balanced Literacy Instruction

  • What is Balanced Literacy?

    It is a comprehensive program of language arts acquisition.  It contains all of the components necessary for students to master written and oral communication.

    Areas of emphasis include:

    • Reading
    • Writing
    • Speaking
    • Listening
    • Viewing

    A balanced literacy plan is most effective when children are given direct instructional support and a variety of daily reading and writing experiences that are needed in the complex process of becoming independent readers and writers.
