Launching the Writing Workshop

You may be launching your writing workshops in September with a unit that invites students to write small moments or personal narratives like in the Units of Study series.  Read a sample minilesson from the Units of Study series by Lucy Calkins at this link:

You can view some charts that other teachers made while teaching this unit to help their students carry on with independent writing as they confer.  Some of the charts remind kids of ways to plan their writing.  Other charts remind students of the writing process, and yet another one reminds students of all they learned in writing workshop the year before this school year.  Thanks for sharing Patty, Marcella, and Lucy!
