"To reach their potential, children need an engaging environment and a reason to learn. This book is aimed at helping teachers implement quality Common Core instruction around this principle." -Gretchen Owocki The quality of instruction is the most important factor in helping students meet the Common Core Standards. That's why Gretchen Owocki's Common Core Lesson Book empowers teachers with a comprehensive framework for implementation that enhances existing curriculum and extends it to meet Common Core goals. "Children," writes Gretchen (author of The RTI Daily Planning Book), "need teachers who believe in the power of meaningful reading as a context for instruction." She breaks the CCSS reading standards into manageable chunks that emphasize engaged, authentic reading and differentiated teaching. For each standard, she offers: a clear description of what it asks from students an instructional decision tree that connects assessment to planning instructional strategies that gradually release responsibility to students techniques for intensifying instruction when readers need more support. "In implementing the standards," writes Gretchen, "we want children to deeply engage with multiple forms of reading. I wrote this book to offer encouragement to stay grounded in meaningful instruction, and to offer a set of strategies that emphasize meaningful reading." Respond to the Common Core with The Common Core Lesson Book-you'll help students meet the standards, and so much more. PLCs and book-study groups!

"Workshops are deliberately kept simple and predictable, like an art studio or a researcher's laboratory, because it is the work itself that is ever changing and complex....Each day's teaching in a workshop does not set up a new hoop for the students to all jump through in sync. Instead, for the bulk of time during each day, students carry on with their work. As they do so, they draw upon a growing repertoire of skills, tools, strategies, and habit." -Lucy Calkins Learn how to teach students to read with increasing sophistication and personal engagement and how Lucy Calkins and her colleagues launch a rigorous and responsive intermediate reading workshop. Through 2 foundational books-A Guide to the Reading Workshop and Building a Reading Life-and eight online video clips, Lucy and her colleagues provide the strategies, lesson plans, and tools you'll need to lead strong, efficient reading workshops in upper-elementary classrooms. A Guide to the Reading Workshop crystallizes the reading workshop. After detailing the essential principles of reading workshop instruction, Lucy describes how to develop engaging minilessons that develop the skills of proficient readers. In the chapters that follow, Lucy presents different ways to lead small-group work and one-to-one conferences. In addition to describing the predictable methods and structures of a reading workshop, select chapters consider various ways to assess readers and track their development, how to use data to inform your instruction, and how to differentiate instruction and prepare for standardized reading tests. Building a Reading Life launches the reading workshop. In this unit of study Lucy and Kathleen Tolan pull out all stops in an effort to help all their students become avid readers. They wear a love of reading on their own sleeves, help students fashion their identities as people who care about reading, and create a social life that revolves around shared books; above all, they help students develop a sense of agency about their reading lives, taking responsibility for becoming the kinds of readers who not only make sense of books but also let books change their lives. Lucy and Kathleen meanwhile induct children into the structures, routines, and habits of a reading workshop. Students learn how to choose books that are just right in level and interest, to carry books between home and school, to collect and study data about their reading rates and volume, and to push themselves to read with increasing stamina, fluency, and volume. In reading partnerships, children learn to retell and summarize texts and to share ideas that are grounded in the specifics of their books. Through the eight accompanying video clips Lucy and other master teachers invite you to eavesdrop on their minilessons, small-group instruction, and conferences. Dramatic video clips let you sit alongside young readers as they engage in book clubs, reading partnerships, and inquiry groups. (Video clips are free for 6 months upon registration. You must register within 6 months of purchase.) Learn more about these resources and the Units of Study series at www.unitsofstudy.com. This pack is part of firsthand's Getting Started series.
