Introducing: Pacing Guides!
“Do you have a pacing guide?”
I’ll be honest. When teachers asked that question, I’d always cringe, for two reasons. Number one: we did not have a pacing guide. Number two: Creating one would be a huge undertaking. We’re a small team at Storyworks and Storyworks Jr., and with everything we’ve wanted to create for our resources, we just hadn’t had the opportunity to work on the kind of comprehensive pacing guide you deserve...
…until now! Here are our brand-new pacing guides for both Storyworks and Storyworks Jr. This is where you’ll discover how our resources can fit into your teaching calendar as you map out the rest of the year, and as you break out your plans day by day. You’ll also find the genres and skills you can expect to cover with your students, plus the differentiation, assessment, and standards information you need to create a complete, powerful, and robust schedule of lessons.
Speaking of standards, we have hot-off-the-presses documents that outline exactly how Storyworks and Storyworks Jr. align with Common Core and similar state standards. And for our Texas teachers, we’ve got documents dedicated solely to TEKS. We hope you’ll share them with your administrators. See below for links to these documents:
We can’t wait to hear how these resources work for you. Please share your feedback with us!
