A Book on Balanced Literacy


Full Member
Hello All,

I graduated a couple of years ago and have gone on a few interviews. One of the things that always pops up is a question about balanced literacy. Finally, one of the principals that interviewed me suggested that I get a copy of Guided Readers and Writers: Teaching Comprehension, Genre, and Content Literacy by Irene C. Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell.

If anyone is having a problem understanding balanced literacy, try and get your hands on a copy of this book. Look at your school's library or ask a teacher at the school where you are doing your student teaching. It really explains balanced literacy.
