This study was completed to determine how teachers define balanced literacy and how they implement it into their classroom. The study was conducted in three first-grade classrooms, and data was collected through teacher interviews, classroom observations, and environmental checklists. The data shows that teachers implement balanced literacy in different ways yet still meet the necessary components. Through the review of literature and the findings from this study, three themes developed: the individualization of balanced literacy, a variety of ways of implemented balanced literacy, and a need for professional development for teachers.
