Introduction to Balanced Literacy, K-8 (Session 1 - No Cost for TMI PLC Members)

Introduction to Balanced Literacy, K-8

(Please Note: This is a 2-Session Program)

Are you new to teaching in a Balanced Literacy framework? Have you been out of the classroom for a while and can’t believe how much teaching has changed? Are you a brand new teacher? If you answered yes, this is the workshop for you! Balanced Literacy, a framework for all grade levels and literacy learners, is made up of several  instructional components. Join us for both the basics of each component and how they fit together, as well as ways to use each component to the benefit of your students.  

  • Session 1 of the workshop will include an overview of the research, theory, and practical aspects of each of the Balanced Literacy components. This session will take place on December 13, 2018 at Ramapo College of NJ. (No Cost for TMI PLC Members)
  • Session 2 of the workshop will take place in a local school so we can model and show you the components of balanced literacy in action. Time for pre-modeling conversations, as well as post-modeling discussions will take place. The date is TBD and will be scheduled/coordinated during Session 1 on December 13th. 

You will leave this two-day workshop feeling a lot less new to this important work. (Note: Districts may want to use new teacher mentoring days for this workshop.)

Instructor: Patty McGee; TMI/Gravity Goldberg, LLC Lead Literacy Consultant
Session 1 Location: Ramapo College of NJ; Trustees Pavilion - Room 1; Session 2 Location: Local School/District - TBD
