Planning With the Pacing Guide

Our Pacing Guide will help you plan your year with Storyworks, a resource that includes a dazzling classroom magazine and an incredible package of support materials. You’ll discover how Storyworks can fit into your teaching calendar as you map out the year, and as you break out your plans day by day.  

For each genre, you’ll find a chart laying out skills you can expect to cover with your students, plus the differentiation, assessment, and standards information you need to create a complete and powerful schedule of lessons.

This is followed by a suggested calendar of teaching activities, including how to work in pre-reading, vocabulary building, close reading, skills activities, assessment, and learning extensions for every feature.

Together, the Pacing Guide and the Step-by-Step Lesson Plans that come with every issue are your go-to companions for teaching Storyworks with ease and joy!
