This booklet is designed to provide information on The Balanced Literacy Program and The Balanced Numeracy Program. Definitions and examples for the different approaches are given as a guide for your information and to use when programming.
While information provided in this booklet unpacks the frameworks of The Balanced Literacy Program and The Balanced Numeracy Program it should be stressed that engaging in specific professional development, dialogue and receiving on-going support is essential to embed these approaches. The Literacy and Numeracy Section offer specific Professional Development workshops that address these programs. A table listing these workshops and the appropriate contact officers is included at the back of this booklet. Information on these workshops can also be found on the Professional Learning Calendar on ‘Index’ or by contacting the Literacy and Numeracy Section on 62058291.
