• Reader's Workshop
    What is Reader's Workshop? Reader's Workshop uses a similar format to Writer's Workshop. There are several consistent components but there is much variation on how it is implemented in different classrooms.

    •  Mini-Lesson some aspect of literature or a reading strategy.
    Indepedent Reading Time, where students keep a journal and respond to the literature in terms of what they think or how they feel about what they are reading.
    • Sharing Time where students share with another person their journal entries and the other person gives feedback.

    During Independent Reading Time, the teacher engages in student conferenceson an individual or group basis. Teachers can also engage in guided reading with groups of students who need additional support.
