Building a Balanced Library Framework

Have you ever wished you had a good way to reach your struggling readers? If so, you're probably ready to discover the secret that thousands of teachers are already using to transform their reading instruction: differentiated instruction combined with guided reading. We'll take our first look at it in this lesson, and I'll explain how blending these techniques will help you build a balanced literary framework that helps your students negotiate a variety of texts with success.

Getting to Know Your Readers

The first step in helping your students is getting to know who they are and how their minds work. In this lesson, you'll learn how to evaluate your students' readiness, interests, learning profiles, and social elements. Then you can use this information to drive meaningful, focused instruction that will help them see reading as a pleasure rather than a chore.

Planning Assessments

Assessment is at the heart of differentiated instruction because you have to know where your students are before you take them somewhere new. In today's lesson, learn how to plan quality pre-, ongoing, and summative assessments that will give you a clear picture of student learning. The best part of assessing students at multiple intervals is that you can tell what is working and what isn't, adjusting teaching strategies as you go.

Grouping Students

In this lesson, we'll discuss flexible groups, which are a mainstay in the differentiated classroom because they allow you to combine students for different reasons on different days. Sometimes you'll combine students based on interests and other times based on readiness or learning profile. However you use flexible groups, you'll appreciate the way this technique lets you accommodate a diversity of students.

Selecting Texts

When it comes to selecting the texts you'll teach, there are literally thousands of options. However, you can narrow them down considerably by understanding the criteria of good fiction and nonfiction texts. You'll be picking the right texts the first time after we finish this lesson.

Framing Your Before Reading

Did you know that a lot of the learning process hinges on what you do to prepare students before they actually start reading? That's what we'll discuss in this lesson. It's easy to just introduce a text and let students have at it, but if you plan the time before reading with activities that build anticipation and ground the text in prior learning, you'll be amazed by the results.

Reading the Text

How students read a text is a highly personal matter, but in the classroom, you have to direct reading to get the greatest results. In this lesson, you'll learn how to teach students the right way to read, to comprehend what they've just read, and to make inferences. The ultimate goal is helping your students have truly meaningful interactions with the text, and I've got just the tricks to help you through.

Navigating the After Reading Framework

Does learning end when students put a book down? I hope not! The time to really help students process the text and extend their learning in new avenues is after students finish reading and have the chance to start thinking for themselves. Today, we'll go over the after-reading framework, where you'll teach students to turn information into ideas as they go beyond the text and into the world.

Tiering With Ease

If you think of your classroom as a ladder, you'll realize that you have a lot of students on a lot of different rungs. In today's lesson, we'll explore tiering, which is a concept that helps you separate students based on their readiness, interests, or learning profiles. The trick is doing so without making students feel like they're more or less competent than others. Are you eager for the secrets? You'll master them in no time!

Anchoring Your Students to Extra Learning

What do you do with those extra 10 or 15 minutes at the end of a lesson or a school day? An increasingly popular idea is to anchor your students to the material they've learned by extending learning in new avenues. You can do this with games, writing prompts, or any number of other fun, creative activities. We'll explore lots of great ideas in today's lesson.

Crafting Independent Reading Projects

Your ultimate goal with the balanced literary framework is to create independent readers who are confident and capable of negotiating new texts with ease. In this lesson, you'll learn the basics of curriculum compacting, learning contracts, and individual projects, strategies to help your students transition to independence. You'll be amazed by how well students learn when they work more independently.

Putting the Puzzle Together

We'll finish up the course in this lesson by discussing the foundation that you build for classroom learning. Your attitude is everything. (That almost bears repeating!) Beyond that, you need to be able to encourage struggling readers and help parents extend the learning at home. Once your foundation is strong, you'll notice that both students and parents take the initiative to build positive reading experiences.

Customer Reviews


Wow, I loved this chapter!! Thank you, Marsha. I would love to meet you and share experiences. My goal at school this year has been to try to get my teachers to buy into differentiation of instruction. "NO TIME! NO TIME!" This is the common theme. Thank you for giving such quick practical suggestions that can be implemented in five minutes or fifty minutes, teacher's choice! For those of you who are not currently teaching, this course has been one of the most logical and practical that I have had. Start now making things for your future classrooms. I believe I remember one of my classmates used these ideas with their own children.

I learned so much that I could apply to my teaching right away. The instructor was very upbeat, positive and supportive. Very interesting course.

For me, the most beneficial part of the class was the assignments. I could go right back to my class the next day and I had something to do with the class that I knew was meaningful and beneficial to my students and me. The kids loved helping me with my "homework" and I think it served as an excellent example of being a lifelong learner…I feel much better about myself as a reading teacher and I know taking this class will help me better meet the needs of my students…I will definitely recommend ed2go and this instructor to others.

Through well-crafted lessons, expert online instruction and interaction with your tutor, participants in these courses gain valuable knowledge at their convenience. They have the flexibility to study at their own pace combined with enough structure and support to complete the course. And they can access the classroom 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection.

New sessions of each course run every month. They last six weeks, with two new lessons being released weekly (for a total of 12). The courses are entirely Web-based with comprehensive lessons, quizzes, and assignments. A dedicated professional instructor facilitates every course; pacing learners, answering questions, giving feedback, and facilitating discussions.
