As a 1st year teacher I felt so fortunate that my first PD was a hands-on one. When I got back to my school I got the whole school hyped up about foldables and still run the foldables workshop every summer during in-service week at my school. My kids absolutely love making them and are now pros! Here are some pictures of foldables we make in my class.

Nine Strategies for Reaching All Learners in English Language Arts Not satisfied with students' progress on district- and state-mandated tests -- and after careful deliberation by administration and staff -- the Edwards Middle School implemented the Massachusetts Expanded Learning Time (ELT) Initiative in the 2006/07 school year. ELT has since become an integral part of the school day, where students receive an additional 60 minutes of support instruction in some core academic classes like English and math, and 90 minutes of electives in arts, sports and music, and other enrichment activities. In order to maximize the benefits of ELT for students, I looked for ways to fine tune my approach to teaching individualized learning in my English language arts classroom.

Reading Workshop: Managing the Workshop An important aspect of managing workshop is offering students consistent routines that balance teacher-led, students-led, and choice-reading experiences. During the opening weeks of school, I focus on these two strategies: Discover the kinds of reading support students need, then organize small strategic-reading groups.Teach the class how to work in groups, pairs, and alone without the support of a teacher. Teach Students to Work Independently It can take from four to six weeks for students to learn how to work on specific tasks without your guidance.
