New Units of Study Are Here!

The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project and Heinemann are proud to announce the release of four additional book-length Units of Study, each addressing an especially key topic from the If…Then… titles in the Units of Study series. These four books were written out of the tremendous feedback from teachers on their power. They are designed to help teachers dig deeper into these topics and to provide the instruction necessary to build stronger readers and writers in their classrooms.

For Reading Units of Studies:
Word Detectives: Strategies for Teaching High Frequency Words and for Decoding, Grade 1 By Elizabeth Franco and Havilah Jespersen
Mystery: Foundational Skills in Disguise, Grade 3 By Brooke Geller and Alissa Reicherter with Colleagues from the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project

For Writing Units of Studies:
The How-To Guide for Nonfiction Writing, Grade 2 By Valerie Geschwind and Jennifer DeSutter with Colleagues from the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project
Literary Essay: Opening Texts and Seeing More, Grade 5 By Katie Clements and Mike Ochs

These new book-length units have been written to fit tongue and groove into the original Units of Study, yet each can also work as a self-contained stand-alone unit, offering you a chance to try on the experience of teaching the Units before moving to the complete series. These units will also come with anchor charts, Post-its for planning, trade packs, and online resource supports.
