Product Description
After purchasing the printed materials from the publisher, this supplement helps the planning and implementation of this unit. This cannot be effectively used without first purchasing the printed materials from the publisher.

Crafting True Stories - Personal Narratives - Writing - 21 sessions - 3rd - 5th Grade - PDF Version (there is a SMART Notebook version available).

NOTE: This unit follows the Crafting True Stories unit written by Lucy Calkins and the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP). There are some deviations from what the books says and those detours are noted in the beginning of each slide. However, the foundation of the teaching points and most of the other elements of each session remain intact.

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 teacher who DO NOT have SMART Notebook. If you can’t open the preview file, you won’t be able to use this version. HOWEVER - there is a SMART version that has been asked for and I have made available. Just search for the same title and you’ll see the SMART 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 PDF's of the SMART Board presentations - from Lesson 1 through Lesson 20 (see below).

Lesson 01: Starting the Writing Workshop: Visualizing Possibilities
Lesson 02: Finding Ideas for Personal Narratives
Lesson 03: Drawing on a Repertoire of Strategies: Writing with Independence
Lesson 04: Writers Use a Storyteller’s Voice. They Tell Stories, Not Summaries
Lesson 05: Taking Stock: Pausing to Ask, “How Am I Doing?”
Lesson 06: Editing as We Go: Making Sure Others Can Read Our Writing
Lesson 07: Rehearsing: Storytelling and Leads
Lesson 07a: Helping Writers See the Language of Their Stories
Lesson 08: Writing Discovery Drafts
Lesson 09: Revising by Studying What Other Authors Have Done
Lesson 10: Storytellers Develop the Heart of a Story
Lesson 11: Paragraphing to Support Sequencing, Dialogue, and Elaboration
Lesson 12: Becoming One’s Own Captain: Starting a Second Piece, Working with New Independence
Lesson 13: Revision Happens throughout the Writing Process
Lesson 14: Drafting: Writing from Inside a Memory
Lesson 15: Revision: Balancing Kinds of Details
Lesson 16: Commas and Quotation Marks: Punctuating Dialogue
Lesson 17: Writers Revise in Big, Important Ways
Lesson 18: Revising Endings: Learning from Published Writing
Lesson 19: Using Editing Checklists
Lesson 20: Publishing: A Writing Community Celebrates

NOTE: You’ll see that there is a lesson 07a that is inserted. As you know, Calkins puts a lot of teaching into one session. At times, I felt it necessary to break out a sessions into 2 days. I even did that with some of the sessions as they are listed - stopping midway to continue it the next day.

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.
