About the Units of Study Virtual Teaching Resources, 2021-22 Subscriptions

Because so many of you in the Units of Study community requested ongoing access to the Units of Study Virtual Teaching Resources from the 2020-21 school year—especially as models for the most effective ways to teach minilessons—Lucy Calkins and her Teachers College Reading and Writing Project colleagues have adapted those virtual modules to align with their 2021-22 Suggested Sequence and have also identified some specific additional resources that will be especially helpful as you return to in-person teaching and learning this fall. These Virtual Teaching Resources are designed for student use in any classes that remain virtual as well as for teacher PD.
