Description : "If the writing workshop is always changing, always haphazard, children remain pawns waiting for their teacher's agenda. For this reason and others, I think it is so important for each day's workshop to have a clear, simple structure. Children should know what to expect. This allows them to carry on; it frees the teacher from choreographing activities and allows time for listening. How we structure the workshop is less important than that we structure it." -Lucy Calkins Learn how to take your students from pictorial story telling into fluent writing and how Lucy Calkins and her colleagues launch a rigorous and responsive primary writing workshop. Through 2 foundational books-The Nuts and Bolts of Teaching Writing and Launching the Writing Workshop-and eight online video clips, Lucy and her colleagues provide the strategies, lesson plans, and tools you'll need to jump in and teach writing to your students in powerful, lasting ways. The Nuts and Bolts of Teaching Writing equips you to teach a productive, well-managed writing workshop, introduces you to the methods that underlie all writing instruction, and helps you plan a yearlong curriculum in the teaching of writing. In addition to guiding you through the classroom systems and teaching structures that are the foundation of a primary writing workshop, this comprehensive overview also includes chapters about working within developmental stages of writing, supporting English language learners, and assessing writers. Whether you have taught in a writing workshop for years or are just learning the term, Launching the Writing Workshop will offer you a comprehensive plan for the first four weeks of a primary writing workshop. Lucy and Leah Mermelstein present both the precise language and pacing of their teaching and the reasoning behind it, so that you can create the same powerful experiences with your own children. Whether writers write just a few labels on items in their pictures or write paragraphs, by the end of this unit all children know that in order to write, a writer fills him or herself with an idea, plans how the text will go, and then draws and writes as best he and she can, working to make the page match the writer's vision. The eight accompanying video clips convey the inner workings of writing workshops in a variety of primary classrooms. These live-from-the-classroom video clips are supported and enhanced by an optional voice-over coaching commentary from Lucy that explains the teaching moves and strategies. (Video clips are free for 6 months upon registration. You must register within 6 months of purchase.) Learn more about these resources and the series at www.unitsofstudy.com. This pack is part of firsthand's Getting Started series. Bridging the gap between educational theory and practice, firsthand classroom materials model the carefully crafted techniques and language of master teachers in ways that help teachers refine their practice and reinvent their own teaching. The most comprehensive of these resources span more than a year of instruction.

Description : "I''m convinced that Howard Gardner was right when he suggested that all leaders need chances to retreat to the mountains. I hope this book gives you metaphorical mountains. I hope that Leading Wellallows you to step back from the hurly burly of school leadership, to see far horizons, to breathe a new kind of air, and to return home with new energy and vision. And more than that, I hope the book helps you give the teachers and children in your care their own metaphorical mountains; because in the end, good leaders create leaders." -Lucy Calkins In Leading Well: Building Schoolwide Excellence in Reading and Writing, Lucy Calkins draws on the transformative work that she and her colleagues at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project have done in partnership with school leaders over the last thirty years. Travel to any corner of this country, inquire about the schools that are winning acclaim for their joyous and rigorous schoolwide literacy work, and you''re apt to find yourself hearing about the results of the remarkable community of practice that has taken root around reading and writing workshop instruction. This book, like the work of the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project itself, is deeply research-based and principled, while also absolutely practical and real-world tested. Leading Well will provide you with the inspiration and energy you need to rally your teachers to outgrow their own best teaching practices and tackle predictable challenges. Additionally, Leading Well will remind you that you are part of a vibrant community of practice. You''ll learn not only from Lucy Calkins and from contributing authors, Mary Ehrenworth and Laurie Pessah, but also from talented, tenacious, and imaginative school leaders who are creating new horizons for the world of education. Topics addressed include: Planning for Literacy Reform Supporting teachers in implementing reading and writing workshops Tapping the insight and talents of teachers, and rallying key individuals to join your cabinet of literacy leaders Honing your vision for reform and communicating it to the whole school Leading through influence rather than compliance Lifting the Level of Teaching Defining the goals for your teachers and the priorities for students Establishing the structures and culture that support these goals and priorities Protecting independent reading and writing time for students and planning time for teachers Identifying ways to coach and nurture teachers'' skills in the specific methods of instruction of the Units of Study Supporting teachers'' continuing professional development Building Structures across the School and Community Setting up feedback cycles through instructional rounds and targeted conversations Putting in place rituals and traditions to support your school community''s unique character Addressing resistance with radical candor and learning from it Staying the course while integrating new initiatives Engaging parents and building your own professional learning community The book is for school leaders who''ve invited their teachers to join them in the exhilarating work of adopting a dynamic, rigorous, student-centered language arts curriculum. It is for school leaders who have taken on the challenge of transforming their whole school into a place where everyone''s potential, for learning and for growth, is sky high.

Description : "If the writing workshop is always changing, always haphazard, children remain pawns waiting for their teacher's agenda. For this reason and others, I think it is so important for each day's workshop to have a clear, simple structure. Children should know what to expect. This allows them to carry on; it frees the teacher from choreographing activities and allows time for listening. How we structure the workshop is less important than that we structure it." -Lucy Calkins Learn how to teach narrative and expository writing with increasing power and intimacy and how Lucy Calkins and her colleagues launch a rigorous and responsive intermediate writing workshop. Through 2 foundational books-A Guide to the Writing Workshop and Launching the Writing Workshop-and eight online video clips, Lucy and her colleagues provide the strategies, lesson plans, and tools you'll need to lead strong, efficient writing workshops in upper-elementary classrooms. A Guide to the Writing Workshop equips you to teach a productive, well-managed writing workshop, introduces you to the methods that underlie all writing instruction, and helps you plan a yearlong curriculum in the teaching of writing. After chronicling the guiding principles that shape a writing workshop, Lucy details the developmental stages of upper-elementary writers. Ensuing chapters describe the architecture of minilessons, conferences, and small-group strategy sessions and explain how the predictability of these frameworks fosters independence and self-direction. In addition to describing the management systems that make writing workshops possible, select chapters consider various ways to tailor instruction and address the demands of the contemporary classroom. In Launching the Writing Workshop Lucy helps you launch both your writing workshop and your yearlong writing curriculum. While initiating students into the structures and rituals of the writing workshop, this unit also reviews and teaches the essentials of writing-collecting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing. In addition to introducing practical strategies for finding topics and generating writing, children practice the strategy of making movies in their minds and writing so readers can picture exactly what is happening. Students also learn the value of focusing on small moments in such detail that readers feel they are experiencing the event. Through the eight accompanying video clips Lucy and her colleagues open the doors of their classrooms and invite you to eavesdrop on their elementary writing workshops. These live-from-the-classroom video clips are supported and enhanced by an optional voice-over coaching commentary from Lucy that explains the teaching moves and strategies. (Video clips are free for 6 months upon registration. You must register within 6 months of purchase.) Learn more about these resources and the series at www.unitsofstudy.com.
