For New Mexico Teachers, By New Mexico Teachers: Announcing FREE K-6 Literacy Lessons

We are proud to announce the statewide release of new early literacy instructional resources.  Nearly 40 close reading lessons were developed by some of New Mexico’s best early literacy teachers and are now available open-source to all. 

The New Mexico Dream Team has crafted K-6 English Language Arts “close reading modules” over the last six months.  These instructional resources will assist fellow teachers and school leaders in their instructional delivery.  Both celebration of and collaboration in the craft of instructional planning, the Dream Team drew upon their classroom experience in designing concise, high-quality “screencasts” and supporting materials with the assistance of content coaches and online tools. 

During in-person workshops and through ongoing virtual collaboration sessions, Dream Team members:

  • Engaged in a hands-on learning opportunity that invigorated their instructional practice and honed their leadership and facilitation skills
  • Collaborated with their coaching groups to develop close reading lessons that engage students in productive struggle, thus giving students practice with complex texts
  • Prepared to lead professional learning sessions focused on close reading of complex texts

Nearly forty modules have been developed BY NEW MEXICO TEACHERS FOR NEW MEXICO TEACHERS.  They are now available to all New Mexico teachers, for free!
