An Integrated Approach to Balanced Literacy (CVEDC Course/St. Michael's College, Colchester, Vermont)


In this three-credit course, participants will learn to understand how the separate strands the Common Core State Standards are connected and intertwined. Rather than looking at isolated strands, this course will look across reading, writing, speaking and listening, language and foundational skills.  Emphasis will be placed on practicing methods that are responsive to the needs and goals of each particular group of students, and balancing the use of each method according to the needs of the class.
