Reading/Language Arts
  • The Balanced Literacy approach engages children
    in a variety of reading and writing experiences
    that model powerful examples of effective
    literacy practices using fiction, and nonfiction,
    informational, persuasive, prose, drama, and
    media texts. Children learn in a supportive
    environment where lessons are designed with
    appropriate scaffolding to meet the needs of all.
    A gradual and anticipated release of
    responsibility from teacher to student moves
    learners along a planned continuum on their
    journey toward independence.

curiosity, he will continue the learning process
as long as he lives. Clay P. Bedford
