#12308 Science of Reading Book Study!

“The current emphasis on the body of research known as the “Science of Reading” has renewed the reading wars and raised
challenging questions for balanced literacy teachers about the best way to teach reading. Instead of fueling the debate, Jan
Burkins and Kari Yates have immersed themselves in the research and produced this concise and practical guide to integrating
effective reading strategies from each perspective. Each chapter of Shifting the Balance focuses on one of the six simple and
scientifically sounds shifts reading teachers can make to strengthen their approach to early reading instruction in these areas:
Reading Comprehension, Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, High-Frequency Words, Cueing Systems and Text Selection.”
“We’ve written this book to support you in making sound decisions anchored in the best of science, the truth of
responsiveness, and a relentless focus on providing all children learning experiences saturated with meaning,” the authors
write. Join in reading this book that will help us understand the Science of Reading and how to apply this
knowledge into our balanced literacy classrooms. We will use Flipgrid as our platform during this 7-week book
study. It is laid out for us to read and respond to 1 chapter each week. Let’s jump in so we can set our
students (and ourselves) up for success as readers and writers!

Book Study will run via Flipgrid from January 18- March 8, 2022
