BalancedReading.com was set up as
a resource to provide good research-based information about reading instruction
to educators. Our mission is to bring research into practice.
The documents on this web page are
for public consumption. Unless otherwise noted, all of the material
on this website can be copied and distributed freely with only two conditions:
Credit for the source must be included and prominently displayed, and the
material cannot be modified substantially from its original form.
Under these conditions, BalancedReading.com and the authors of these grant
permission for them to be freely copied and distributed without restriction.
However, other websites are encouraged
to link to BalancedReading.com, rather than reproduce text and documents
from BalancedReading.com in their own website. The documents on BalancedReading.com
are subject to revision and improvement, and if the text is copied and
reproduced on another website, that text will not be revised.
Feedback is encouraged. Go
to our feedback page if you would like to contact us.
BalancedReading.com also encourages
researchers and practitioners to contribute resources and information to
be shared through this website. However, BalancedReading.com will
only publish these resources if the authors can demonstrate that they are
firmly and explicitly built upon a sizeable body of published research.
Also, when contributors do publish materials on this website or use BalancedReading.com
to sell resources, those resources may not represent the philosophy of
BalancedReading.com. Finally, when materials and resources from contributors
are published on the BalancedReading.com website, they are subject to the
same policies related to reproduction and distribution that are outlined
