Detail and Synthesis, Grade 4 Reading: Virtual Teaching Resources Subscription, 2021-22

By Lucy Calkins, Teachers College Reading & Writing Project

Detail and Synthesis is designed to be a lean, practical unit that can be taught alongside the very important high-stakes writing unit, The Literary Essay: Writing about Fiction. The goal of this unit is to support kids reading up a storm, reading books that matter to them, and moving up levels of text complexity, while working on strengthening skills that were taught in Interpreting Characters, especially inference and interpretation.

About the Individual Modules Available for Separate Purchase, 2021-22

Each year TCRWP publishes a recommended sequence of units for the year ahead. This year some of the units in that sequence are only available in digital format. Be sure to choose these only if you do not choose the grade-level reading and phonics subscriptions (where these units are also included).

Detail and Synthesis is designed to be a lean, practical unit that can be taught alongside the very important high-stakes writing unit, The Literary Essay: Writing about Fiction. The goal of this unit is to support kids reading up a storm, reading books that matter to them, and moving up levels of text complexity, while working on strengthening skills that were taught in Interpreting Characters, especially inference and interpretation. The unit helps kids use their earlier instruction around character and theme with greater independence as they read their own increasingly challenging books.

See the chart on page 16 of the Overview Brochure for a complete list of all the units available for separate purchase.

Please Note: For a complete list of the trade books needed for each subscription, please see the Trade Book List.
