100 Minutes is a comprehensive look at literacy and learning that includes reading, writing, oral communication, and digital literacy. It shows teachers how to fit balanced literacy into a 100-minute literacy block using a framework of whole-class and guided small group instruction, writing sessions, and independent work. By chunking a literacy block into three distinct sections, this practical resource argues that it is possible to provide opportunities for students to engage in all aspects of literacy, have voice and choice in their learning, capitalize on their strengths, identify areas for growth, and set personal learning goals.
