Parent Resources from Teachers College Reading & Writing Project at Columbia University

You may have seen your children watching videos during Distance Learning about a reading, writing, or phonics skill. These videos are produced by staff at Teachers College in New York who help train classroom teachers how to use the Units of Study in Reading, Writing, and Phonics - the literacy curriculum we use in Beaverton.


If you would like more resources to support your child at home or if there is an area of literacy in which you would like to better support your child, please take a look at these two resources:

Free Office Hours for Parents and Caregivers: Ask a Literacy Expert

Have questions about your child’s reading or writing? Talk it over on Zoom with Lucy Calkins and experienced Teachers College Reading and Writing Project faculty. You might…

  • Ask what you can do (and should not do) to support your child at home with particular issues, or in general.

  • Inquire about what to expect across developmental stages in reading, writing or language acquisition, early to later years.
