Shifting the Balance Book Study

Join me for a book study of Shifting the Balance


Shifting the Balance by Jan Burkins and Kari Yates is a great resource for teachers looking to use more practices informed by the Science of Reading. This summer, I've been reading each chapter and posting a short video about my takeaways and a few resources of mine that would go along with the ideas in the chapter. Here's the link to the Chapter 1 video. I really enjoyed the way that this book explains the research and offers practical, instructional suggestions too!

If you are a teacher in Georgia, you can access this book for free through GALILEO. If you're outside of Georgia, check to see if your system has access to the EBSCO eBook K-8 Collection, This book is included in that collection. Happy reading!
