Units of Study in Opinion/Argument, Information, and Narrative Writing A Common Core Workshop Curriculum, Grades K–8

"At the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project, we have been working for three decades to develop, pilot, revise, and implement state-of-the-art curriculum in writing. We have had a chance to do this work under the influence of the Common Core for the past few years, and this series—this treasure chest of experiences, theories, techniques, tried-and-true methods, and questions—will bring the results of that work to you."
—Lucy Calkins

These new writing workshop units will:

  • help you teach opinion/argument, information, and narrative writing with increasing complexity and sophistication
  • unpack the Common Core writing standards as you guide students to attain and exceed those expectations
  • foster high-level thinking, including regular chances to synthesize, analyze, and critique
  • develop and refine strategies for writing across the curriculum
  • support greater independence and fluency through intensive writing opportunities
  • include strategic performance assessments to help monitor mastery and differentiate instruction
  • provide a ladder of exemplar texts that model writing progressions across grades K–8
