IRA Bridges: Instructional Units for the Engaging Classroom
Want to know what quality literacy instruction looks like in action across the K–12 curriculum? IRA Bridges: Instructional Units for the Engaging Classroom show just that. Spearheaded by IRA's Literacy Research Panel, this series is designed to support CCSS implementation. Every unit has been authored by a teacher-researcher team with one goal in mind: bridge research and practice for high engagement and rich student learning. Assessments have been included for each week’s teaching and learning activities, in addition to an idea for a culminating project.
IRA Bridges, offered in PDF format for easy access on multiple devices, are available exclusively to IRA members. Not a member? See what you're missing with this FREE sample unit, then join IRA to access our growing collection!
