The workshop model allows teachers to differentiate and meet the needs of all their students. Reading Workshop helps to foster a love of reading and gives students chances to practice reading strategies independently and with guidance. This workshop model is similar to the Writing Workshop model. Many school districts use the Reading Workshop Model but there are other models of literacy instruction as well.

Please see Balanced Literacy Framework page for more information on another literacy model of instruction. This page gives a basic overview of the Reading Workshop. Writer's Workshop Resources and Ideas. The majority of time of Writing Workshop is devoted to independent writing.

During this time, students are prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing their pieces. Depending on the age and abilities of your students, independent writing can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as 45-60 minutes. It helps to build stamina with your class, beginning with a short amount of time and building that time until they can work for up 30 minutes or more.

According to Katie Wood Ray (The Writing Workshop, 2001), students can also do other activities during their writing time, such as. K-5 Writing Binder - PPS K-12 Language Arts.

Launching Writers’ Workshop

Use the lessons we’ve laid out below to help guide you through setting up a great workshop. Because this unit is designed to build the foundation of your writing workshop, not all lessons cover common core standards. Many of our lesson are based on the work done by Katie Wood Ray in About the Authors. The writing workshop created by following our lessons will lead to a workshop where students are writing books everyday. Another component of this writing workshop is using real books by real, published authors to teach children what authors do. Like all writing workshops, ours begins with a mini-lesson, gives children time to write while the teachers conferences with individuals or small groups and ends with sharing.

My main focus is the use of social media and web 2.0 technology and the integration in schools by means to engage students, improve communications with all school stakeholders, transform learning spaces, and help educators grow professionally.
