I hadn't seen that, but thanks for sharing! :) I went to check it out on the website right away, and didn't see a publishing date. I hope they come out really soon! I think it will be a great resource.

Hi Annieteach 1
I went to the heinemann website. This curriculum is published in the form of edocs. It looks like you cannot buy the actual books.

I purchased the
6th grade Reading one. ($10) It's 157 pages long!!! <!--misspeak--> The Writing one is now available and I will be getting that one as well.
I've only read the first chapter. There is a lot of reading; the how-to is embedded in that. Mentor texts are mentioned. Lucy Calkins is the author. She mentions the website as a resource many times.
Here is the overview (the chapters) for the year for 6th grade.
Sept.-Launching Reading Workshop
Oct.- Investigating Characters across Series
Nov.-Nonfiction Reading:Navigating Expository, Narrative and Hybrid Nonfiction
Dec.- Nonfiction Research Clubs- Developing Analytical Lenses for Informational Reading
Jan.- Historical Fiction Book Clubs:Tackling Complex Texts
Feb/March- Developing Analytical Reading Practices:Interpretation
March/April-Test Prep
May- Social Issues Book Clubs
June-From author studies to independent projects:launching a summer of reading
From what little I've read,I think the $10 was worth it.

Hi Vanvic
Are you reading a edoc or a hard copy?

vanvic 07-30-2011 12:35 PM

I am
reading the hard copy so I can post-it note it.
