If you'll be teaching the new Units of Study for Teaching Reading, K–5, you'll want to start your year by gathering with colleagues at your grade level and participating together in a study group led by Lucy Calkins and her coauthors from the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. 

In these 45- to 90-minute grade-level study groups, you can expect to learn:

  • The options Lucy suggests for the sequence of units across your year
  • Whether, at your grade level, it's advisable to start with Unit 1 even if your kids are new to reading workshop
  • The books you'll need for Unit 1 (and 2) and ways to give kids access to them
  • The skills that are highlighted in Unit 1, the storyline of the Unit, the special tips Lucy has for making the Unit work
  • Plus, a crash course in how to teach the mini lessons so they're mini—and other start-of-the year teaching methods.

Calkins and her coauthors have also developed an overview of 3–5 assessment, focusing especially on the performance assessments and learning progressions. 

This fast-paced, nuts-and-bolts help directly from Lucy and her colleagues from the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project aims to give you the best possible start using the new series.
