Literacy Units of Study Presentations
You are invited!
Grades K-1, Thursday, October 15
2-3, Monday, October 19
4-5, Monday, November 2
Location: Dix Education Center, 4:15-5:15
The purpose of this session is to look at the revision work completed over the summer to enhance the reading and writing Units of Study. We will highlight the revisions that were made for each grade level and showcase the available resources for Unit 1. We will also walk you through the digital organization of the documents on Google Drive and explain the plans for posting the remaining Units of Study. This Drive folder is a place to collaborate with your grade level team across the district by providing an easy way to share resources with each other for reading, writing, math, science, social studies, classroom management, and more. Time will be provided for you to talk as a grade level team about how your grade level would like to use your Drive folder for ongoing collaboration. Please join us to learn more about the collaborative grade level Drive folder and all the available resources for supporting literacy instruction in your classroom.
