Balanced Literacy and 21st Century Communication Skills ~ Reading, Writing, Listening and SPEAKING !

Students in Mrs. Lehnert’s 2nd Grade class are demonstrating a balanced and integrated approach to Literacy. Well developed, organized and thoughtfully presented information is a core feature of 21st Century Communication skills.

Being skilled at sharing information, concepts and perspective with others who may have very different background, knowledge and opinion, in a respectful and competent manner, is a critical skill for democratic discourse. Development of balanced literacy helps students develop reflective skills and their ability to collaborate with others.
