Annotation: This CD-ROM provides a practical reference and staff development tool for Units of Study that can help primary teachers improve their conferring skills. This resource can help teachers learn how to better target the specific teaching needs of each student and it can provide a springboard for discussions in professional learning communities. If you are a literacy coach, you may want to share clips at grade level meetings or with your whole primary staff to help launch the Units of Study. Even if your school is not using the units developed by Lucy Calkins and her colleagues, teachers love being able to sort through the transcripts in order to explore writing process stages, types of conferences and teaching points. Just like students, teachers learn best when they are can see effective instruction in action and when they have the time to ask questions and share ideas with their colleagues.
