Teachers in grade 3rd through 5th gathered for the second session of the Literacy Unit Project. The aim of this endeavor is to have two to four units, matched to Enduring Understandings that stretch across all three grades, by the spring of 2015. The units will borrow from well-vetted resources and will involve curriculum development to fill gaps where materials for the units are absent or weak. Further the units will reinforce dispositions and habits outlined in the front matter of the Common Core State Standards.
The second session focused on using the EQuiP Rubric, finalizing the Enduring Understandings, and reviewing current Washoe County work to build from what is already happening in our classrooms. You can review the resources shared in the session below.
