Shifting the Balance Virtual Book Study
7 Session Series


Science of Reading?  Balanced Literacy? The pendulum of education has swung back and forth and is swinging again. Experts agree that students need explicit and systematic instruction in reading foundational skills. Children also need joyful opportunities for the application and transfer of those skills into high-quality, authentic literature. Join other educators in the region as we learn and reflect together on where our beliefs fall within this pendulum swing and ultimately answer the question: what’s best for kids?  

Book Included with Registration:
6 Ways to Bring the Science of Reading into the Balanced Literacy Classroom
by Jan Burkins and Kari Yates (2021)

Educators and School Leaders who are interested in exploring how the Science of Reading and Balanced Literacy might work together in a K-2 classroom  

Registration Fee: (Includes book that will be sent to your school district)
$100 for CESA 5 School Improvement Services Members; $200 for Non-Members

This policy replaces any other CESA 5 policies regarding cancellation.

Cancellation Policy: Registered participants will receive a full refund if they cancel before 10 working days before an event, minus any material costs that have already been incurred. Because of our commitment to the trainer and the food vendor, participants who cancel less than 10 working days or do not attend, will be billed the full fee.

Inclement weather policy: Every effort will be made to hold an event. CESA 5 will notify participants via email as soon as possible if an event has been canceled due to weather conditions.
