I post here occassionally but I'm embarrassed to post this under my username. What is balanced literacy? I did not learn about this in my teacher prep program and I really don't know what it is. Is this the same thing as reader and writer's workshop? If not, how is it different? I'm looking to apply to a school that is all about balanced literacy but I have zero experience with this and never even learned the term. Anything you can tell me would be very helpful. Thank you.
