Professional development

Workshop Works! Units of Study to Support Excellent Reading Instruction

I need the Units of Study for Reading to guide my literacy instruction as I help support my students become excited and capable readers.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are bright, curious dynamos who love learning about the world around them. A true community, my students actively support each other and love cheering for each other for each success or comforting each other over each stumble. I'm proud to have such a caring and compassionate class - they make me want to go above and beyond for them! And their kindness challenges me to be the same in my own life. I really do learn from my students every day!

My Project

Using a basal reading program meets the needs of some, but following the Calkins' Units of Study I can pinpoint specific needs in reading comprehension and language to help my students expand their depth of knowledge.

These materials will help me be a better literacy educator.

Students will benefit from reading instruction that is tied to writing instruction in a meaningful way and I will benefit by honing my practice and teaching skills. Being a demonstration teacher using the Units, I will be better able to collect data to determine the difference between basal teaching and using the Units of Study.
