Balanced Literacy

Teaching, Learning & Accountability

It starts with the basics. The wording in the Charles City County Public Schools’ Strategic Plan is clear. All students will meet high standards of achievement by demonstrating excellence in the skills necessary to compete in a global economy. Word work and balanced literacy are integral to achieving this goal. In order for students to develop the skills they need to meet high academic standards and compete in a global economy they must practice reading, writing and communicating. This opens the door for critical thinking in all subject areas. Balanced literacy is the foundation and the framework.
