Has anyone been using the Unit of Study Writing 3-5 in their classroom?

We use the units of study in our district. I'm new so I don't know how they go about using them. If you want more ideas on how to create mini lessons you should check out Ralph Fletcher's Lessons for Writer's Notebooks (Not positive on title). You can order it from Heinemann. It's a little expensive (around $80), but in my opinion worth every penny. It has all the mini lessons for a unit of study. You just pull out the card and the mini lesson is there. He also gives you sample student writing to make overheads with and use as you model the lesson. I've since made my own samples using my kids samples and keep them in a binder. It's easy to use and not as much to read as the units of study book. Let me know what you think.

Yes, our district has been using the "Units of Study" for Kindergarten through 6th grade going on 3 years now. Our students are transforming into motivated, thoughtful writers and our district has made considerable gains in student achievement. What would you specifically like to know about the units?

I have used the units 3-5 as well as the K-2. My district then wrote their own curriculum using the units as a resource. What would you like to know about them?

I will be using the units of study this coming school year. I am not sure I will have the materials though. I am going to a workshop on the 15th and am excited about it. I also will be trying to incorporate some of Katie Wood Ray's reading and as a writer. I would love to discuss these ideas over the summer as I plan ahead.

Hi there.
I'm a third year student at the state University of Alabama. I was forced to make a term paper this year. So I need your help with my research if you don't mind.
