Shifting from Reading Units of Study to Common Core
This is my fourth year teaching 5th grade, and my third year teaching reading. My school used to be a die hard reading units of study school, and now things are changing and there doesn't seem to be a clear expectation of the reading block. So far, there has not been a distinguished structure to my 90 minute literacy block, and I believe it is taking away from student's independent skills. Any ideas??
