    I have an interview this coming Tuesday and an to plan a 10 min. lesson using Pat Cunninghan's 4 block balance literacy model. The problem is I've never heard of it. One book I have talks about 3 blocks, not 4. I have also tried looking online but have not been successful in finding a definition of it. I would really appreciate it if someone could help!! Thank you:)

    4 Block

    If you go to the Carson Dellosa web site they have everything to do with 4 block, mostly things to buy, however they did have a spot that says it will take you to the 4 block web site. I hope this helps.

    Good luck at your interview! You probably won't have time to go buy books, so try checking out these sites. There are tons of lesson plans online using 4 Blocks. The 4 Blocks are: guided reading, self-selected reading, working with words and writing. You can also search for Patricia Cunningham and Dorothy Hall.

    This site briefly explains each block.

    This site has links to other sites w/4 Blocks info.

    ***This is great for explaining, examples, templates, etc.

    I did a google search using four block literacy, four block lesson plans, etc. and there are lots of sites and links.
