PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

READY TO TEACH - Just open it up and start to teach!

Agency and Independence - Calkins Reading - 10 sessions - SMART NOTEBOOK version (there is a PDF version available).

NOTE: This unit contains more than the other units I created. In this unit you will find:
* Each session in SMART Notebook form (or PDF form if you bought that version).
* A summative test with examples of a “1”, “2”, “3”, and “4” response and a rubric. There is a modified version included for differentiation, too.
* A notebook for “reading log” training if you want to use pieces of that.
* Copies of read alouds used for independent work or homework.
* Charts that I created to use with the unit
This unit was derived from the essay that Lucy wrote without a lot of specifics. So, this is a great unit that will save you tons of time rather than having to create it yourself.

NOTE: This supplement was created using:
Agency and Independence - Launching Reading with Experienced Readers from “A Curricular Plan for the Reading Workshop” Grade 5, and,
Part Three: The Art of Literary Conversation - sessions 11- 15 from the Constructing Curriculum: Alternate Units of Study (found in the Resources CD-ROM) in the section labeled “Intellectual Independence”.

NOTE: While this unit is “ready to teach”, it cannot be taught without first purchasing the unit and utilizing its extensive notes, essays, and digital resources. It is meant to be a supplement to - not a replacement for - Lucy’s unit. In developing this unit for my classroom, I wanted something that I could use that would give a visual representation of Lucy’s lessons, be easy enough that a sub could teach it, and give my hearing-impaired and visual learners a way to learn.

NOTE: This unit is for SMART Notebook users. If you can’t open the preview file, you won’t be able to use this version. HOWEVER - there is a PDF version that has been asked for and I have made available. Just search for the same title and you’ll see the PDF version, too. I have priced both the same - even though the PDF version is not editable. I spent the same amount of time creating both versions and, in fact, had to go through an extra step to create the PDF.

NOTE: The preview file and thumbnails only represent a few of the slides from one of the sessions. Each session has the full range of slides. These are only meant to show you the quality of the product you will purchase.

This is the complete bundle of all the SMART Board presentations - from Lesson 1 through Lesson 19 (see below).

Session 2 - Reading with Agency
Session 3 - Choosing Books Wisely
Session 4 - Using the Reading Log as an Artifact to Help Us Reflect On and Improve Our Reading

Session 6 - Reading Between the Lines
Session 7 - Imagining the Scenes in Our Stories

Session 14 - Reading Aloud with Power and Grace
Session 14 - Day 2 - Reading Aloud with Power and Grace
Session 15 - Using Artifacts to Reflect on Our Reading, and Making Plans to Outgrow Ourselves as Readers

NOTE: There are many Calkins units of studies that I have created in the same format for Reading and Writing for 3rd and 5th grade (the grades I have taught): These units are either available now or will be by August 15, 2016: Make sure to “follow” me and I will be sending out updates as more become available. But check back often, too, as sellers are only able to send out updates to buyers once a month.

The lessons follow the Workshop structure of Connection, Teaching Point, Teaching, Active Engagement, Independent Work, and Share. Each of these sections have a different background color and are identified on most slides in the upper right portion of the slide.

Because many of the components are visual and the verbiage is written on the screen, this is ideal for classrooms with hearing impaired or deaf students. Interpreters will be grateful because they can point to the the words and get a break from signing.

NOTE: The preview and thumbnails are just a FEW slides from one session of this unit, but all the files follow the same format with Connection, Teaching, Active Engagement, Link, MidWorkshop Teaching Point, and Share.

Comments and questions are always appreciated.
