Units of Study in the Primary ClassroomKathy Collins
Primary-grade teachers face an important challenge: teaching children how to read while enabling them to build good habits so they fall in love with reading. Many teachers find the independent reading workshop to be the component of reading instruction that meets this challenge. In Growing Readers, Kathy Collins describes the structure of the independent reading workshop and other components of a balanced literacy program that work together to ensure young students grow into strong, well-rounded readers, and she outlines a sequence of possible units of study for a yearlong curriculum.
"Growing Readers can become the seed to wrap your teaching around, nurturing your own experiences in the light of an author whose fresh and original teaching reflects her deep, deep understanding of young children and reading."
