Rebalancing Literacy Videos

The important truth is that teaching children to be great readers and writers is not simple, nor is developing an informed curriculum for doing so. Studies show that the most effective way to help kids become accomplished readers is to lean on all the research that can inform instruction: the research behind fluency and motivation, comprehension instruction, knowledge development, language development, and yes, the research that supports systematic phonics.

The videos linked explain Dr. Lucy Calkins' philosophy on Rebalancing Literacy, and what it means for teachers and students across the world.
