Second Grade Reading Growth Spurt - 24 sessions - This resource was created in Google Slides.
NOTE: This unit follows the Art of Information Reading unit written by Lucy Calkins and the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP).
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: 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.

The lessons follow the Workshop structure of Connection, Teaching Point, Teaching, Active Engagement, Link,Mid-Workshop Teaching and Share. Each of these sections has 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 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.
