Original Units of Study for Teaching Reading and Writing

posted Sep 3, 2011, 9:40 PM by Paul Ketko

Lucy Calkins and her colleagues have helped hundreds of thousands of teachers take their first forays into the teaching of writing. Now they have written an unprecedented series of books on Units of Study for a yearlong writing curriculum.

Get easy access to the magic of their transformative teaching. Enjoy minute-by-minute, live-from-the-classroom coaching as Lucy and colleagues show you how to refine your lessons to do justice to the curious minds that you teach. In each Unit of Study, these teacher/authors detail their goals, share the assessment rubric that guides their practice, and even provide the exact words of their teaching.

The Common Core Reading & Writing Workshop Series

“The standards are part of an urgent effort to push and shove and hoist and pull the entire system of education toward higher expectations. That work is utterly necessary.”
-- 
Lucy Calkins

The Common Core Reading & Writing Workshop series provides grade-specific yearlong curricular plans for reading and writing workshops that are carefully aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Growing out of the Reading and Writing Project’s community of reflection and practice, these plans describe Lucy Calkins and her colleagues’ latest thinking and insights on how to teach the essential skills and strategies of proficient readers and writers; how to progressively build on student learning; and how to fully address the CCSS in your reading and writing workshops. Provided in an easily accessible electronic format (PDF), these curricular plans can be quickly downloaded and immediately support your reading and writing workshops.

Each grade-specific curricular plan:

  • offers a yearlong workshop curriculum that includes unit rationales, crucial minilessons, practical teaching tips, and descriptions of student work;
  • is updated annually to reflect the latest research and state-of-the-art teaching practices;
  • unpacks related Common Core State Standards and aligns them with appropriate units of study;
  • builds on the scaffolds and practices detailed in the Units of Study series;
  • provides the teaching points needed to implement a spiraling curriculum;
  • suggests performance assessments that guide differentiated instruction and target crucial skills and strategies;
  • models best practices by explicitly describing Lucy and her colleagues’ teaching moves and language.

Whether used as a stand alone resource or in conjunction with the Units of Study series, these curricular plans let you grow alongside the community at the Reading and Writing project as they develop more effective workshop instruction and better address the Common Core State Standards.
