A Balanced Approach to the Common Core State Standards:
Introduction to Balanced Literacy Components
Instructor: Beth Moore
In this three-credit course, participants will learn to look at the Common Core State Standards as whole. Rather than looking at isolated strands, this course will look across the reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and foundational skills. Emphasis will be placed on practicing methods that are responsive to the needs and goals of each particular group of students, and balancing the use of each method according to the needs of the class.
Includes the texts: The Continuum of Literacy Learning (Fountas & Pinnell) and Reading in the Wild (Donalyn Miller)
