Help with Curriculum Maps / Units of Study

Clip to ScrapBook #1

For the past 10 years, I have been a Reader's and Writer's Workshop girl. The past 5, I have continued to do units of study, but don't always use Calkins stuff- I've created some of my own.

Well, now we are being asked to use the Curriculum Maps presented in a book written by teachers.

Is there anyway possible to continue with units of study and curriculum maps?

Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas on this?

I'm pretty much in that same boat. Trying to fight to keep what I know is needed for the kiddos is getting tough. The units that I have seen that most schools are being forced to do are just well stupid. I can do a much better job using readers and writers workshop using good quality literature, and make so many more needed teaching points than what they are asking. Not sure yet how some of those units are going to raise the scores. If it ain't broke don't fix it. My kiddos always come in low and end up doing great. So frustrating. But we do what we have to do....
What I'm trying to do is to tweak what has been presented to us and plug in what I know they need still using readers and writers workshop.

If anyone has any suggestions or plans I, too, would love to share. Maybe we need a board and present units and throw ideas at each other!

I didn't really help in your question! Go to calkins sight and you will find a yearlong curriculum map. Also, it's a NYC site that has some really good stuff too. I posted a question last night asking if the NYC is like Calkins . No replies yet.

Let me know if you get a response. It is good to know that I am not alone... I feel that those units lack too. They are all over the place.

The Wachusett School District in MA put together an amazing map for each grade level. They have it for both reading and writing.
Check out the link.
