If you are struggling to get lasting literacy progress out of your K-5 students despite the fact that your classroom library or school bookroom is stuffed with leveled books, then join Author and Literacy Expert Jill Eggleton in this three-part webinar series on balanced literacy. As powerful of an instructional approach as guided reading is, supporting the growing appetites of your aspiring Literacy Heroes requires more than just leveled books. It requires a delicious “balanced literacy” burger made up of multiple ingredients—or instructional approaches—that work together in a balanced way.

In part 1 of this series, Jill will share new ways to think about balanced literacy, including:

• What balanced literacy truly means
• Why balanced literacy is important given today’s increasing literacy expectations
• The ingredients that make up a truly “balanced literacy” burger with a focus on reading, seasoned with oral and written language

In addition, Jill will help participants take a bite out of the top bun of the “balanced literacy” burger—shared reading and poetry. Lively, inspirational, and filled with rhythmic, musical text, shared reading and poetry are powerful instructional vehicles that allow the rhythm of language and the power of words to be caught, not taught.

There will be time for Jill to answer your questions after her presentation. K-5 classroom teachers, reading specialists, literacy coaches, administrators, and librarians as well as K-12 district-level elementary curriculum and instruction directors/coordinators, elementary reading directors/coordinators, and elementary remedial reading directors/coordinators are invited to this live-interactive session.
