My school’s teaching using the Units of Study for Teaching Reading and Writing for the first time this year. My friend works at PS58 in Brooklyn and they have been using the UoS for years. Today I observed a 2nd and 3rd grade class and chatted with a 5th grade teacher. Now I’m inspired to return to VA. It helps to see that I am going so many things well. It helps to see ways I can grow.
When I saw this sign on my walk back to my hotel, I smiled. I am feeling ready to keep practicing reading and writing workshop, not just talk about it!
