All the hours I spent organizing, simplifying, and preparing the Calkins' Literary Essay Writing Unit for my class can now be downloaded to save yourself the hours and hours of preparation. You will find the following in this bundle:
Cheat sheets for ALL of Lucy Calkins' 6th grade Literary Essay Writing Unit for
PowerPoint presentations for Bends 1-3
** If you do not have a way to project a PowerPoint presentation to the class, you can always print slides that might be useful for students to have as notes.
As teachers, we have limited time! When I was faced with teaching Calkins writing units, I felt overwhelmed by the information. There is a lot to read! This resource was created to help teachers save time when trying to implement Lucy Calkins writing units. This is not a replacement for her books (I do still recommend reading through each session as she has more information that you will find in the cheat sheet- almost like professional development) but these sheets provide an organized, step-by-step process for teaching each session.
What you will find:
Goals for both teachers and students listed for each section
notes on how to present the lesson
The cheat sheets and PowerPoints are based on what is in Calkins' books. Once downloaded, you can edit it as you see fit. The nice thing, is that all the hard work has been done for you, yet you are able to personalize it as needed! As you become more comfortable with the workshop model, you eventually will want to take Calkins' examples and make them your own- which is easy to do when the outline of the lesson is already completed for you!
