This year we embark on a great adventure in writing. We are using a new writing series resource, Units of Study in Opinion, Information, and Narrative Writing A Common Core Workshop Curriculum by Lucy Calkins and her colleagues from the Reading and Writing
Project. I found this to be a very effective program last year to teach writing to my students. and saw a great deal of growth in my students as writers. This resource builds on the best practices and proven frameworks that help students meet and exceed the Common Core State Standards.
We will begin with Narrative, move on to Opinion and finish the year with Informational.
