Balanced literacy

Abstract

My interest in this topic is to understand the history of balanced literacy, what components are used, what issues have arisen in districts where a balanced literacy framework was adopted, and what impact it has had on student literacy performance. Chapter 2 provides information on the history of balanced literacy, what components are included in a framework implementation, and research on balanced literacy. Chapter 3 provides recommendations for an effective balanced literacy framework implementation and needed on-going support.

Comments/Acknowledgements
