In this workshop, a companion to, Shifting the Balance: 6 Ways to Bring the Science of Reading into the Balanced Literacy Classroom (Burkins & Yates), Jan Burkins introduces six shifts for upper elementary teachers to consider as they work to make reading success more accessible for all students. This session is based on the newest book Shifting the Balance: 6 Ways to Bring the Science of Reading into the Upper Elementary Classroom, co-authored with Kari Yates and Katie Egan Cunningham. Across the full-day workshop, Jan will zoom in on common practices that need reexamination, use scientific research to untangle misunderstandings related to those practices and offer brain-friendly, high-leverage instructional moves as an alternative.
