What is Balanced Literacy?

Building a solid foundation in Literacy provides skills needed in all subject areas and for lifelong learning. Michelangelo’s Balanced Literacy Project is a bilingual language program where the teacher provides maximum support to all learners at their individual reading and writing levels in English and French and to ensure success for all students.  

Many of our teachers use the Daily 5 method for Balanced Literacy.  The school library holds over 17,000 books and it is complemented by a resource room with extra resources for our literacy program.
