||Lucy Calkins - Writer's Workshop
Lucy Calkins is a well known author of children's education.
Lucy Calkins, author of ten books including The Art of Teaching Reading, The Art of Teaching Writing, and Raising Lifelong Learners: A Parent's Guide is Professor of Curriculum and Teaching and the Founding Director of The Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. The Project is both a think-tank, developing state-of-the-art methods, and a provider of professional development for hundreds of schools. As the leader of this world-renowned organization, Lucy works closely with superintendents, district leaders and school principals to re-imagine what is possible when school leadership is closely aligned with professional development. She, meanwhile, also works closely with particular teachers and their vibrant, quirky classes full of children. This series of books grows especially out of Lucy's work with a handful of her staff, and with a small cadre of New York City's teachers who joined her in a year-long study group in primary writing.
I will be Using this series throughout the year, it is a comprehensive guide to the classroom systems and teaching structures that are the foundation of a primary writing workshop. Lucy also includes chapters about working within developmental stages of writing, supporting English language learners, and assessing writers.
