Introduction to the Units of Study Series
Schools or districts that wish to conduct an in-depth study of Lucy Calkins’s Units of Study series for Opinion, Information, and Narrative Writing, K-5, Argument, Information, and Narrative Writing, 6-8, or Units of Study for Teaching Reading Series, Grades K-5, may attend a one-day units of study workshop led by a staff developer or by a member of our Units of Study Team.
These days offer detailed support in the foundations of reading and writing workshop, including ways to design units of study, teach minilessons, and lead small group work. These workshops also focus on the importance of data-driven, assessment based instruction, and understanding trajectories of skill development.
Please note that you must have the units of study books in order to receive professional development of this kind. If you are interested in scheduling a units of study day in your school or district, in either reading or writing, contact Judith Chin, Coordinator of Strategic Development at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-678-3104.
