Summary: In past years, whole language philosophy and direct instruction in basic literacy skills have often been presented as mutually exclusive approaches to instruction. In reality, many of the best teachers have responded to the individual needs of their students and have ''struck a balance,'' combining the best practices from both approaches in their classrooms.

Striking a Balance: Positive Practices for Early Literacy is written to help prepare pre-ser morevice and practicing teachers to meet the challenge of today's diverse student population and create a comprehensive program that places direct skills instruction within the context of rich and varied reading and writing experiences.

Readable, thorough, and contemporary, this concise text addresses the core topics and issues of literacy acquisition clearly and succinctly. Grounded in theory and research, Striking a Balance also shows readers how theory informs practice through its corresponding focus on classroom application.

The selected classroom examples of strategies, procedures, and activities represent the most effective practices according to current research and the host of outstanding teachers observed and interviewed in preparing this textbook. Striking a Balance will help readers to make sound, professional, pedagogical choices based on state-of-the-art research on classroom practices. less
