How to Choose Good-Fit Books
Reading Strategy: Check for Understanding
This year I am teaching both the Reading and Writing Units of Study. This program is based on a "workshop" approach to both subjects, in which I teach a shorter minilesson, students have extended time to read and write to apply the lessons taught, I confer with students one-on-one and in small groups, and we have a share session at the end. There are four units in each subject, focusing on narratives, informational text, and persuasive/opinion text.
