Being a Writer + Lucy Calkins On Demand

Clip to ScrapBook #5

This is the first year I used Being a Writing. I was quite impressed at how this program helped my students really get the gist of being more independent and following the writing workshop model. It has basic introductory lessons up until about Novemeber, then it begins genre. These introductory lessons were crucial for building a foundation. Some of my teammates skipped these lessons and say they have been struggling with the genre writing. I also use the Lucy Calkins On Demand assessments for each genre, as a pre and then the rubric again for a revised, published post assessment. The only downside was that the program has poetry as a genre instead of opinion writing, so I just mimicked the other units and tweaked it for opinion writing. I would highly recommend these programs. I am impressed with the student growth and my observations have been good.
