A Virtual Publishing Celebration

RUOS grade kit 2015We may write about the teaching of writing, but we’re passionate about the teaching of reading too! In fact, two members of this team have done a lot of thinking, writing, and editing about the teaching of reading for the past year. Our very own Anna Gratz Cockerille and Beth Moore are part of the team who worked on the new Units of Study for Teaching Reading, K–5, now available from Lucy Calkins and colleagues.

Anna was a supervising editor on the new Units of Study for Teaching Reading, K–5. That means she communicated about what needed doing to Lucy and relayed information to other editors, as well as edited books. She had a hand in most of the books in the series.

K-2 if then ROUS 2015 BethBeth co-authored the If…Then…Curriculum: Assessment-Based Instruction, K-2 book with Lucy Calkins. This book contains alternate unit of study plans and supports differentiated instruction by providing support for one-to-one conferring and small group work.

As you can imagine, this was a HUGE project! Congratulations to Anna, Beth, Lucy, and the rest of the Units of Study Team. This series is bound to have a profound impact on the way reading is taught in K-5 classrooms.

    These books are just what all teachers need to do their very hard job. I will be buying and using the 3rd gr kit next year to help students in Arlington county, VA learn that they are great readers!!!

    Without such a brilliant resource, I would not feel confident in my work!!
